Before burial, make sure you know your state's guidelines. Some states do not have guidelines for burial.
Some cemeteries have a dedicated section for babies lost prior to 20 weeks gestation.
Some people get permission from the cemetery to bury on the same site as a parent's or relative's grave.
If you bury on a relative's grave, some cemeteries will allow you to place a small stone or plaque on the existing
monument if you want to mark the site.
If possible, before going to the hospital and/or receiving anesthesia, let staff know what your wishes are, sign any
necessary paperwork, and determine if you need/can bring a burial vessel with you.
