My brother and his wife went in yesterday for what was supposed to be their 2nd routine prenatal checkup at 15 weeks only to discover that their baby had died somewhere around 11 weeks. I'm sure they were in shock yesterday and didn't think to ask questions of the doctor but today he is wondering if they will be able to see the baby, will they be told if it's a boy or a girl and if there will be a funeral or do they just consider it bio waste? He's asking me because I've had 2 miscarriages myself. Mine were at 6 1/2 weeks though and I never had to have a D&C or D&E like she is scheduled for. I don't know the answer to his questions and can only be there for him emotionally.
Can anyone tell me the answer to his questions? Or should I just have him call the hospital and ask?
