These devastating images became viral in social media after the brave mother who made them available.
They show the Australian Kristy Watson hugging her dead boy. It's hard to look at them.
Kristy wants her heartache to be a warning to other mothers and dare to reveal her most personal and emotional moment.
In the pictures you can see son Kristy Kaycen in his arms, in a cot and a coffin surrounded by toys, with which he will never be able to play.
Kaycen's heart stopped beating at the age of 32 weeks, reports Mirror. Kristy was repeatedly sent home by doctors, although she had some unusual symptoms during her pregnancy.
She said now: "I want people to know my story so they know when their gut tells them something is wrong to fight for answers, travel back and forth until they find out what's going on to make sure that they are listening. "
Kristy, from Victoria, shared her heart with the birth of her dead boy on Facebook, hoping that "no mother, no family has to go through the pain, broken heart and loss" she suffered.
The 20-year-old employee of the cafe said that it is difficult to come to terms with being pregnant as one mother after three difficult miscarriages, but she calls it "the most beautiful experience".
She praised her body for being strong enough to carry a child when she did not believe she could, but after 26 weeks of pregnancy she had a feeling that something was wrong.
"I knew something was wrong," she explained. "From terrible swelling of feet and hands, faces, headaches that lasted weeks, blurred vision, my blood pressure was rising up and down I knew it was not (sic!) Just normal" pregnancy symptoms ".
"But after many doctor visits, in and out of the hospital, even trying to contact another hospital for a second opinion, I was told it was normal."
Kristy says she was sent home for the next six weeks after sharing her doubts with the doctors.
It was only when the nurse sat down at the end of the bed, 32 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy that she discovered that she had a pre-diarrhea, a condition that causes high blood pressure and protein in the urine.
The nurse also told Kristy that her child is no longer having a heartbeat.
Three days later she was called up and withstood a 12-hour portion before she finally managed to keep her dead boy named Kaycen.
She bathed him, dressed him in his children's clothes and put them in a cot surrounded by a teddy bear.
She warned women to listen to their intestines, "fight for answers" and make sure they are listened to.
"I felt my son's last movements on July 26 at about 8.30, so that the next morning at 6am I could not find my heartbeat," said Kristy.
"I had to move away from having a whole line of life, move my world and be healthy in my belly, then be induced to deliver a sleeping child.
"I lost my wonderful boy because the system disappointed me and did not listen when I knew something was wrong.
"I had to watch my family being so broken because of missing a nephew, grandchild, cousin and me because nobody cared for help when I needed it.
"I want people to know my story so they know when their gut tells them something is wrong to fight for answers, travel back and forth until they know what's going on to make sure they are heard.
"Because now I have to go home to a nursery full of everything I needed to raise my little boy.
"To an empty bed, which my son never went into, books that I could never read, his favorite outfit, I never dressed him because I was not heard.
"Now I am going home empty-handed with such a broken heart that I cure it for a long time."
She ended her rending post with an appeal to other women to hear what their bodies are trying to say to them – and insist that doctors check them until they receive an answer.

"Please, listen to your bodies, I know that some people do not have to go through the stress that I had to go through the weeks before my son died.
"We have to look after ourselves the same way, and I can not imagine that any other mother would have to feel as if they failed my child, just as I had to."
She added: "Please, share, I do not want this post to be seen as a blame on anyone.
"I want people to know what I've gone through and in any way help prevent this from happening to someone else!"
