Here in Malta, I work in the only major hospital there is, which is run by the 
Government. We need to set up a policy regarding access to foetuses. We have had 
requests from the Maternity wards to allow parents to take pictures of the 
foetuses which have been in formalin. They are not a pretty sight. 
Their request is, that we allow a nurse to dress up the foetus, leaving just the 
face and hands showing. Then the nurse takes the foetus to the parents who would 
take the photo.
Are these things allowed in your hospitals?
Is it the logical thing to do?
Is it humane?

Please, I need some feedback.
