MamaMadge, ADN, BSN 66 Posts Specializes in L & D and Mother-Baby. Has 14 years experience. Aug 21, 2007 I recently had a patient with a 39 week demise. I was her nurse for the induction, delivery and then again the next night for postpartum. The baby had also been deceased for several days. It had a tight double nuchal cord and a true knot. She was a beautiful baby and I cried for several days after. The thing that helped me most was caring for the mom after. Her priest came in and did a beautiful blessing ceremony with all of the family involved, and I got to participate as well. It was very comforting. I think it really helps to talk with co-workers and if that doesn't help definitely check in to talking to someone professionally.
