The greatest grief

How do we ever get over the death of a small child?  All of can deeply empathise with any parent who has had to go through the anguish of losing their baby or toddler – and it’s a sadness that never goes away.

In fact, parents who lose a child are far more likely themselves to die young, a new piece of research has discovered.  These parents are twice a likely to die in the 15 years after the death of their child than someone who does not endure such grief.
