Stillbirth should be taught in schools, says bereaved mum

A woman whose baby was stillborn wants baby loss taught in school as part of sex and relationship education.

Heatherjane Coombs, 44, from Ely, Cardiff, said stillbirth and neonatal death remained a "taboo subject" and children should be told "not every pregnancy ends happily".

Her first and only child Xander was stillborn at 36 weeks in 2003.

The Welsh Government said schools were given the freedom to deliver topics which best meet their learners' needs.
