PMID:  12234749     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Grief after the death of some or all multiples differs from mourning for a singleton loss in many important respects. A review of the unique features of grief for a multiple birth loss is followed by practical suggestions for empathic care. Cherished mementos and photos, and disposition options for deceased children are discussed. Counselling needs of parents and siblings are detailed, and management options for many complex pregnancy and infant loss scenarios are presented. The abundant resources listed will help caregivers and families better cope with one of the most difficult complications of plural parenthood.
