Loss of a baby: did he go to heaven?

First of all, I am very sorry to anyone who has suffered the loss of their baby. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

I am not completely sure that I believe in heaven and God but I do firmly believe that if they do exist a baby would be in heaven. I think that God would keep those babies close and make sure they are kept safe.

Personally I believe that we all have a soul. I think our soul still exists even after we die. I think that our relatives souls will welcome our soul when we die. I am not sure where we go but I am sure that we are not alone.

    Very sensitive, indeed.

    I think this all depends on your beliefs. If you believe in heaven and hell, it's hard to imagine that a baby would end up anywhere in Heaven. If you are comfortable with it, I would suggest visiting a pastor at a church that follows your beliefs and talk about this issue.

    If your beliefs line up more like Katie's, I know you'll be able to find plenty of people online who follow your beliefs and can comfort you in a time like this.
      Totally agree. No matter what your religious beliefs are, I think we can all agree that babies do not go somewhere bad. The idea of Heaven and Hell is based on moral judgement, and babies are the most pure of heart.
        I agree too! Personally, I've always felt like my first 2 losses were the same baby - a baby boy. I don't know why I feel that way, I just do, I can't explain it. I felt like the first time I lost the baby his soul was given back to me with my second pregnancy. We saw his heartbeat around 6weeks but I miscarried 24hours later. I believe he went to heaven then.

        When I was pregnant with Avery somehow I knew deep down that it wasn't the same baby. I didn't know if she was a girl or a boy at the time, but she felt different to me then my first baby.
