    This is probably something your nephew's wife should talk to her OB about. And then they should ask themselves if they are mentally prepared. It is hard on a couple to lose a child and then to have another pregnancy.
    Sorry about your finger!

    My son and his fiancee had a baby die at Christmas. They want to have one right now but the doc wants them to wait at least one more year from now.

    I don't know how I came across this, but felt like I needed to respond...

    Having myself had a baby that was born with Tetralogy of Fallot (he died when he was 12 days old-born June 2002 )-this was one of the first questions that I asked my OB.

    I agree with dawngloves-they do need to talk with their OB. I don't know how your nephew's baby was delivered or what complications his wife had, if any; but that would be the best place to start.

    Also, are they in a support group for parents that have lost a baby? I strongly recommend this: there may be other parents that have been or are going through a pregnancy after the loss of a child.
