About the Author
Author Susan Rousselot draws on both training and personal experience to write this empowering and informative book. With degrees from Wellesley and MIT, and experience as a medical researcher, she has tracked down and deciphered the most solid, up-to-date medical information for this book. Yet she covers the subject with a clarity that comes from being an accomplished author, and a compassion that comes from her own miscarriages; she knows firsthand the many difficult issues that pregnancy loss can trigger, and how hard it can be to get answers. She translates complex medical research into clear language and useful insights, and presents it all with sensitivity and optimism. Finally, she encourages readers by her own example, because although she knew nothing about miscarriage when it struck her, she resolved to take an informed, positive role in her own healthcare; she believes her two children are the direct result.
