Playing Courtney Stodden Emotionally Holds 'Reborn Doll' She Says Is Helping Her After Miscarriage

Courtney Stodden is trying some unconventional methods to deal with the devastating miscarriage she suffered in July.

Stodden, 21, Instagrammed a video of herself on Wednesday cradling her "reborn baby," which she says her therapist suggested she buy. Reborn baby dolls are dolls that are made to look and feel just like newborn infants, and can cost anywhere from $180 to more than $550.

"Just received my reborn baby today! Exciting," Stodden wrote. "I know it may seem a little strange but my therapist suggested that having him may help me cope with my loss."

The video shows Stodden -- wearing a pink wig after she shaved her entire head earlier this month -- excitedly holding the doll, and sounding on the brink of tears.

"Oh my God, this is amazing," she says. "Oh, he's so pretty. So beautiful."

"Look at your brother," she later tells her dog.

Stodden also shared the doll's birth certificate, which lists its weight at 5 lbs., 6 oz.

She later penned a heartbreaking letter to her unborn baby.

"My precious Angel," she wrote. "I never had a chance to hold your tiny hand. Never will I get to kiss your little warm feet. Never will I have the fortune to look into your precious eyes."

"I will never get over this...losing you," Stodden added. "I hope you know how much I miss you growing inside of my tummy. I hope that you know that I wanted to give you life -- a beautiful life -- and desired so much to watch you grow into an incredible human being."
