I know we have to be concerned about the feling of grieving parents but I 
would feel a little concerned about dressing up a fixed fetus, on the grounds 
of  health and safety as well as the aesthetic look of a fetus after 

When I worked in a maternity hospital in the UK, parents who lost babies and 
fetuses didn't have to ask whether they could have a photo or not, a polaroid 
was routinely taken by the nursing/midwifery staff along with a foot-print 
which was placed onto a small piece of card with the babies name on it. They 
were offered the photo and print if they wanted it.
