What did you do with your miscarried baby?

Yesterday I miscarried my 12+5 weeks baby. I've spend most of the day (and night) in A&E and am exhausted. I can't sleep though as I can't stop thinking what should I do with my little treasure.
What did you do? Or have you got any ideas?

Our baby had cremation with ceremony organised and paid for by hospital. We attended and later scattered his ashes in a special place. I am so sorry you had this happen

So sorry for your loss OP.
I lost a baby at 12 weeks when I was just 18.
I was rushed to hospital and the baby came out in the ambulance and then I went straight for a D&C and I never knew what they did with it. It gave me nightmares for years.
I was too young and naive to even ask what would happen to the remains. They put me next to the maternity ward surrounded by mothers and newborns - I nearly lost my mind sad
The nurse told me to cheer up - I'd had a lucky escape as I was too young anyway shock
So glad things have changed and MC is handled so much more sensitively nowadays.
