A sociological framework for explaining parental experiences of stillbirth is presented. Foregrounded is gender, and from an analysis of 39 interviews with 12 sets of bereaved parents and 16 mothers (22 of whom suffered a stillbirth and six of whom a neonatal death), comes a sociological perspective on the reasons why men and women experience stillbirth in different ways.
