Results: the participants indicated the complexity and difficulties of the mourning process, implying a grief that lasted but could be overcome through spirituality and family support. They also showed the lack of support from the health services. Conclusion: although mourning is a complex and peculiar process, the mothers pointed out the importance of the spirituality and support of their relatives, but highlighted the lack of support from the health services.
