Perinatal Bereavement Documentaries
When a baby dies one of the first concerns a parent has is the impact this
loss has on their young living children. It is difficult to know what to say or
how to talk about the death of a long-awaited sibling. Ethan's Butterflies
provides a way for parents and professionals to connect with young children who
experience the loss of a sibling. This story is written from a young child's
perspective and told by a pink elephant named Emma. Emma describes her deep
sadness, anger and fears and poses many questions that children often raise.
Emma shows how she and her family learn to live with the loss her baby brother
Ethan and how they continue to connect with him in many ways, one of which is a
butterfly and another is love.
