Remembering Alex and Ian 4
This year I have discovered that Australian film maker Sarah Watt had a stillborn child and made a short film called Small Treasures (1995) about a baby who dies before birth. I would love to see it. You can read her account of her own stillbirth in Worse Things Happen at Sea by William McInnes and Sarah Watt.
I also read of British actress Amanda Holden's stillbirth. There is an insightful article in the Telegraph newspaper (Amanda Holden - "I know the pain of having a stillborn son, too", 8 February 2011) relating to it by Dr Alexander Heazell whose son was stillborn.
