Not so.

Stillborn was written BEFORE Plath had her stillborn, therefore it was not
written to grieve the loss of her stillborn child.

This poem "Death &Co. brings to mind other peoms of Plath's such as
"Stillborn" which darkly refers back to the stillborn losses od her two
children. There is quite alot of dark, death and nude/newborn imagery. I
believe that Plath wrote this to once again grieve the loss of her dead
children...her depression is clearly seen in this poem.
