It seems grieving is being discouraged here...


Parents struggling to cope with losing a baby are easing their grief with replica dolls of their lost children. The lifelike models, called Reborn Dolls, have a mechanical beating heart, realistic hair and even veins, says The Sun. Experts make them look identical to a child that has died, and weights are placed in their limbs and bodies to mimic the way a real baby would feel to hold.


Am I the only one who finds this a little disturbing? Surely people should be encouraged to grieve, not deny it by clinging onto some plastic facsimile...
