One Mother’s Kindness to Another After a Stillbirth

Recently, a question was asked on Reddit…

What is the kindest thing you’ve done or seen?

One man answered as follows…

“When my wife gave birth to our firstborn, the woman she had shared a ward with while in the early stages of labour had a stillbirth.

After giving birth, rather than spending time bonding with her newborn, my exhausted wife gave me our son and spent 3 hours comforting and consoling this woman.

Something about the bond of mothers seemed to connect them.

The woman and her husband have since become close family friends and had two beautiful children after this – they still credit the support we (mostly my wife) gave them in the period of time after the stillbirth, especially in those three hours, with helping them get through their grief.

The kindest act I’ve ever seen. done by the kindest person I’ve ever met.”
