Alexis Fretz went into labor when she was just 19 weeks pregnant.

Her son Walter Joshua Fretz was born and died in her arms. Her husband took photographs of the tiny baby and Fretz shared her story and pictures on her blog.

She wanted to share the story with family and friends in her small town and not have the agony of retelling the traumatic experience.

The story spread much further afield and has been shared by thousands around the world.

Fretz says she hopes the story of her son Walter can help open up discussion about pre-term labor and miscarriage, which affect more than 1 million women in America each year.

Beloved son: Fretz says the term 'fetus' is insulting, and that her son was a baby, even though he was so tiny
