This episode was life changing for me.
I just had a baby four months ago, and I could not ever imagine that pain. You never really think about that. I respect them for doing something that is SUCH a sensitive subject, because it really did open my eyes to how blessed I truly am to have my beautiful healthy son. This episode broke my heart and filled me with joy at the same time, and I've never experienced anything like it. I never really loved Secret Life, but now my respect for the show is through the roof.

I'm sorry, but having the baby die was just not something they should have done. This is just my look onto this. I know that they are trying to make Teen Pregnancy scary and everything, but please, they are just trying to get everyone NOT to have sex, this is just an outcome of the sex, and the stillbirth was not the right way to go. Maybe an adoption would have been better. Wait, is that the next person thats going to have a baby? She's going to have an adoption? Who knows? All I know is that seeing Ben's Dad (can't spell their last name) with those tears broke me down. Seeing all of them crying made me freaking bawl. I did NOT like this episode, not one bit.

I had seen a few episodes of this show, but it wasn't until an unexpected pregnancy that I suddenly fell in love with it. I'm not a teen, but I feel like I was too young. I have since seen every episode and I've been blessed in giving birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl, and this episode completely broke my heart. I'm so impressed with the show for tackling such a controversial issue and to have handled it so well really brings the show up to another level.

For those of you who think the episode was to much I know women who give birth and they also die themselves while giving birth and the baby dies this episode was good enough I have aunts who've given birth and had the baby but the baby dies right in there arm that's got to be the worst at least adrian knew before you know its still harsh but its life it happens

Hi I'm a huge fan of secret life I've seen every episode truthfully this was a great episode it made me want to keep watching the show and it leaves you wondering what's happening next but as for me I think "AMY AND RICKY" should be together they're adorable they have a child and he's different because of her he changed him and Adrian don't belong together and ben also changed adrian a bit but AMY and RICKY are the best its the reason why I even record the show when I'm not home its because they belong together and I don't know he's hott and she's hot and I'm dying to know if they'll have sex they deserve it she's been so good he's been so good and it'll be super exciting for them and us as viewers if your a fan of TEAM "AMY and RICKY" email me at cruiz1105@yahoo.com so we can do something to keep them together I'd be so devastated if they don't end up together

Wow, the ignorance on here is rather astounding. "They should have shown a miscarriage. They took it too far." Can someone explain to me how a miscarriage is any less heartbreaking than having a stillborn? For those of you that have children and respect the show - you're incredible. For those of you that it's happened to - I am so sorry for your loss. For the rest of you that think that it would have been more appropriate for Adrian to have a miscarriage - you're ridiculous. My sister just had a miscarriage and it in no way was easy for her. Losing a baby is losing a baby. It's tragic, devastating and life changing. How it happens doesn't change the outcome or how terrible that reality is. If you can't handle what happens to many women then don't watch the show...but PLEASE shut up about how they could have chosen a different way for the baby to die to make it easier for YOU to watch. Kudos ABCfamily for tackling thorny issues - Francia did incredible by the way - shes always been the best actress but this was very well done.

I believe it was a good and informative. They tackled an issue that is Taboo to talk about, I too lost my son and stillbirthed. Even though it is a show some teenagers connect to the show and now know its not easy dealing with these issues. I am grateful to the writters and actors, amazing job....unfortunately I cried a lil longer than usual during the episode.

To me Secret Life has always been very unrealistic. As the daughter of a teen mother the show has always kept me going though. The actors always have that monotonous ever emotion looks the same style of acting. Too many characters with equal sized story lines. Perfect lives for naughty teens. All that being said this episode was one of the most real heartbreaking the i have ever seen. I've never cried so hard from a tv show, even though i knew it was coming since i'd dvrd it and heard the new before i could watch it. Ben seemed helpless and broken. Leo seemed confused and unsure and scattered. Adrian seem heartbroken and defeated, Like she could never feel comfortable with her body again just because of what had happened. I got all that from their acting and it was marvelous. Even Amy had that feeling of it could have been me in those few minutes she knew. Maybe I'm making up the emotions i thought i saw but regardless well done Secret Life .Well Done

I think the big picture here, is that this episode really made people realize they have a connection to a fictional tv show. When everyone cried simultaneously at the end, it made viewers cry as well. For me, it was more like balling as if I had just lost my baby. It was so emotional and it was played out so well and so realistically that you had no choice but to just feel pain and empathy for ben and adrian even though they are just actors in a tv show. For 2 seconds it felt so real and so traumatizing, and that's when you know that the show is absolutely amazing!

I think it was the right thing.. it's sad .. but now they don't have to stay together and adrian and ricky can get back together and ben and amy..
