Baby lost

Weekend Herald - - Viewpoints -

The let­ter from Su­san Grims­dell was so right. Fifty years ago I lost a baby boy at 20 weeks. Fright­ened, con­fused, op­er­a­tion to re­move af­ter­birth, blood trans­fu­sion, in­com­ing milk sup­ply. Fam­ily in an­other coun­try. Hus­band and I had to strug­gle through on our own. No help at all from any­where. I wasn’t given the chance to see my child. He was taken away to the in­cin­er­a­tor. Pauline Merritt, Hamil­ton.
