Parents who lose a new baby have a high risk of dying prematurely, says British study

Parents who lose a new baby run a high risk themselves of dying prematurely, according to a British study published on Thursday. -- ST FILE PHOTO: CHEW SENG KIM PARIS (AFP) - Parents who lose a new baby run a high risk themselves of dying prematurely, according to a British study published on Thursday. Investigators delved into a random sample of national death registrations for the years 1971 to 2006. They compared deaths among parents who had been bereaved in the first year of a child's life or whose child had been stillborn, against deaths among parents whose baby had survived beyond the first year. Bereaved parents were between two and four times likelier to die or become widowed in the first 10 years of the child's death compared with non-bereaved counterparts.
