This thesis reports a phenomenological study of seven parents’ lived experience following the death of a twin in the perinatal/ neonatal period. It gives consideration to the issues important to the study. It provides a literature search to situate the study in the field of evolving bereavement theory and in the context of twin loss. A number of questions have been raised that led to the formulation of the research question (page 63). The descriptive phenomenological methodology adopted provides a framework for my ontological and epistemological positions. Through the method of analysis of the data from semi-structured interviews, the essence of the phenomenon was elicited and the fundamental structure was established.
