Behind the scenes

Staff writer Bryan Cogman came up with the idea of the stillborn fetuses being preserved in jars. Cogman said in an interview, "It was a proud day for me as a writer when I walked on set and saw those magnificently nasty prop dead babies floating in those jars."[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there is no mention Selyse Baratheon having any sons, live or stillborn.
