Quoting kthx.:" How are you supposed to bury a 3-4 week old embryo? I mean I'm just curious."


Match box... Tic Tac container... Maybe just sop it up with a sponge and throw it in a Tupperware container...

Quoting Nicholl Rowe:" The earliset the fetus is considered viable, is 28weeks. at this point the lungs have actually started to function, and secrete surfactant."

No, viability is 24 weeks.



Babies have survived at 21 weeks.

Ahhh thank you. Does that mean it is considered early labor then? Or still a miscarriage?

I believe early labor. I had a friend who just miscarried at 5.5 months, and they still called it a miscarriage, not a still born.

I know this is in TDC but just wanted to add something relevant, in my hospital if you MC or require a DC or other form of medical help, (the shot for ectopics for instance) they cremate the remains and you have to option of having the ashes returned to you, they will also arrange any kind of religious requirements you have, a priest to do a blessing for instance. It is possible to have respect, yes at early stage it is just a clump of cells, but in many cases that clump of cells is more than just that to the person suffering the loss. Some people require a bit of closure and while it would be unreasonable to bury every single loss, there are other ways to help people cope, that do not involve throwing away the remains.

Guess what they do with limbs that have been amputated from the body? Should be bury them too? They are a part of someone, are they not?

I personally would not want the remains of a miscarriage (and I have had one). I can see how it would be meaningful to some, yet I wonder how many grieving couples would incur the cost of it in order for hospital policies and protocols to change so drastically as to allow it.

How do you cremate blood and/or clots?

Quoting Rowans Mom (RIP):" Yeah it goes to pathology. Hell, I couldn't even take my wisdom teeth home since they were considered a "biohazard" but this was a dentist's place."


They let me keep the wisdom tooth and molar that I had surgically excised. I still have them somewhere around here. And a picture of them in the little baggie thing he gave them to me in.
