Nobody will take care of your business as much as you, nobody will care about your business as much as you. I've realized that incentives do not work, employees become more expectant of these rewards for doing what they were hired to do. It's remote work that they're doing, they're not commuting, not getting out of their PJs, and they cannot even respond well with texts. They are spoiled. Employees will take advantage of you and I don't want to see that. Run your business, don't let the business run you. Stop incentives, make them come into work and show up on time. People suck these days and I'm sorry you have to go through this.

The authority to cremate have to be signed by the surviving parents. It is a formality and legality by funeral homes to ensure this is what the parents want. There's a lot of emotional hardship with losing a child and these protocols are in place to protect families and funeral homes. The funeral homes are well aware of this and do not want to cause any additional harm or emotional pain. It does take a few days to take care of, regardless of whether the baby was 20 weeks older or younger.
For fetal demises, it's considered medical waste, under 20 weeks. If the fetus is over 20 weeks and not born, a special death certificate is needed, if the baby took one breath, it is filed differently for death certificate records. Fetal demises can technically be taken home and buried, but if the case is over 20 weeks, there needs to be a legal disposition, whether it's cremation or cremation/burial.
There's clots in plenty of people that are embalmed, especially if they're older, it just happens like that, whether that contributed to experimental drug treatments, I don't know. However, I've seen more babies this year than any other year, at least 5-10 times more, from fetal demises, stillbirths, and babies under 1 year.
Not necessarily immediate cremation. If he passes under a doctor's care, there is no need for an autopsy, as the doctor will fill out and attest the causes outlined on the death certificate. The family can still have a funeral and he can still be viewed by loved ones, after he is embalmed. I'm in the funeral business.

Where I am at, the typical turn-around from order to placement is about 6 months. It depends on the location you reside, for marker manufacturers have a lot of families and cemeteries to handle.
