Late Term and Child Loss


Sorry to bring up a hurtful event. I'm still shaken at the thought of we had to do one on our angel. If anyone on here did an autopsy to find out long did it take for you to get the results. Also, was it sent to you or to your doctor? Thanks!

  • It took 8 weeks for the body autopsy and 10 weeks for the brain autopsy/pathology to be done. The results were sent to us and we had the doctors who requested the autopsies go over them with us.

  • We had an autopsy done.  My doctor called me with the initial results (which were inconclusive) three days after the birth.  He said it would take 6-8 weeks before we got additional results.  I guess they are testing for infection, genetic

  • We didn't have one done we just couldn't do that. I sometimes think we should have only to find out really why she died but I am okay with not having it done. We will never know why I still blame the doctors and I will always blame them for us losing her.

  • We had one done. Honestly I can't remember how long it took to come back. It wasn't too long though. My doctor got the results. She called told me and then asked if I wanted a copy. I said yes so she marked the envelope so I would know

    Our autopsy was sent directly to our Dr. we didn't get a copy, but I sure I could ask for one.

    They've finished her autopsy, but we still haven't received the final results.  We got a preliminary report at 4 weeks, but all they could say was that her heart stopped; they didn't know why yet.  I'm hoping we get some answers soon.  (We'

  • We had one done, I think we had results within 4 weeks. I know it can take longer if you have a lot of genetic testing done. I would also recommend not reading the report. I am a nurse & I really wish I hadn't read the details because they're stuck in
