S2E6 It is revealed towards the end of the episode that a baby is stillborn following placental abruption. You see the mother grieve and it’s pretty heartbreaking. You do not see the stillborn infant, he is covered by blankets.

Also, I feel like I should mention that the mother, while passed out from blood loss, has a prolonged nightmare. In it, she dreams that the baby is unable latch and he is starving to death. Once she is finally able to feed him, the nightmare culminates with her teammates drugging her tea and eating her baby. This baby-eating scene is fairly graphic. While you don’t necessarily see the infant being eaten, you do see blood on everyone’s faces, they’re chewing, and they’re all kinda huddled over something with bloody hands going to their mouths.

There is a very sad and disturbing backstory about a stillborn infant. Nothing is shown but it’s very emotional and could be hard for parents who have experienced miscarriages and/or stillbirth.

There are unhatched Stag eggs in the Stag Nest, and it's implied that most of them can't or won't hatch, which might hit your heart similarly.

New born dies off camera. It is discussed in a scene near the end of the episode. If this is a trigger for you do not watch the final scene. It is just the mother sitting alone in a maternity ward full of babies. No plot just cheap emotional exploitation.
