Losing a child is one of the most painful and devastating experiences that someone can go through. Sadly, so many men, once excited at the prospect of being a dad (many for the first time), never get to experience a “normal” child birth. Some also never get to experience a “normal” fatherhood. These men are part of a club that swells by over 3,000 new members each year through stillbirth, neonatal or infant loss alone Here are some of their stories:
