Storyline

RETURN TO ZERO is based on the true story of a successful couple preparing for the arrival of their first child. Just weeks before their due date they discover that their son has died in the womb and will be stillborn. Lives and relationship forever altered by the loss, they try to cope through denial, escape, alcohol and an affair, but nothing can save their marriage. And that's when they discover that they're again pregnant (from a last ditch 'save the marriage' getaway to Las Vegas), and must come together to face a turbulent and terrifying pregnancy.

Taking a stillborn home...
18 May 2014 | by ChristyInOregonSee all my reviews

Not sure yet exactly what they did to deal with the loss in the movie (watching it right now) so this is not a spoiler. I'm curious about the options parents have when they find out their child will be stillborn. I watched an interview about a couple that went through this and the hospital encouraged them to take the child home for a night. As someone who has never been pregnant and doesn't have kids, it seemed like a strange and morbid thing to do. If you've experienced this kind of loss or watched others go through it, what is your take on taking a stillborn child home? Is it helpful in dealing with the loss or does it create even more sad memories?
