Whether or not breastfeeding was planned, losing a baby any time after 16-18 weeks gestation may still lead to milk coming into the breasts. This can be a traumatizing experience for parents grieving a baby. Offering lactation support for those experiencing loss has long been overlooked and is crucial to overall health. Mothers have the right to choose how to handle this delicate situation. With so many other decisions that have to be made immediately following a loss, some grieving parents have no idea what they will be facing when it comes to postpartum, their breasts, and human milk.
