I’m so very sorry for your loss. I suspect that the dream is what you dreamed of — holding a perfect, healthy baby in your arms. You are grieving. It is natural to think about how things could have been as well as how they are.

I hope you are getting good support in this difficult time. Many hospitals have grief support groups for parents who have lost a child. Please consider taking part in such a group. There is something very reassuring about being with others who really understand.

I wish you well.
