Thanks to all of you for your words of support.
That was such an emotional time for me, and it was a relief to know there was somewhere to go where people would understand.
I'm sure it's a difficult thing for the hospital, in an administrative sense. That is, it would be easy to "overlook" the infants lost through stillbirth, etc, since they never made it to the NICU, and since it's the NICU who organizes everything, they wouldn't have any records of these tragedies, I guess. Regardless, I plan to do just as many of you suggested and write a letter to the hospital -- perhaps this may change the way it's handled in the future.
Again, thank you all so much for your kindness and support. I truly don't know what I would do without you.
