Format: Paperback
This is the best book on the topic of perinatal loss I have read. It is a guide through the grieving process not only for the bereaved parents but also for caretakers, friends and others. This book can help parents make decisions during a time when they may not be able to make decisions or when they not know what their rights and options regarding their precious babies are. It also validates the bereaved parents' feelings, since parents often feel isolated during their grieving process over their child who died before he/she ever lived on this earth. Other parents share their experiences and you realize you are not alone. An exellent book that I will recommend to everybody who has lost a baby or who knows somebody who has lost a baby.

I didn't know what to do with myself when my son died on Jan. 15, 2002. I still am having a huge amount of trouble, but this book is helping me take steps forward even though part of me does not want to. I have purchased many loss books and this one is the best for practical advice. It helps you feel less alone, offers you ideas on what you will go through (all of which you need) but also gives you practical ideas on what to do to help yourself through this horribly difficult time. It is hands down, one of the best books I bought. If you buy only one loss book, buy this one.

I want to be honest and say I have not read this book yet, but I am ordering it for a young woman I know. I had the most impactful experience today, and am still spinning from the experience.

There is a young girl in my town that I barely know. I see her when I go in the local dairy queen, and I hired her to dog sit when we went on vacation once. Other than that, I have really had very limited time with her. That is why the events of the day seem so peculiar and perfectly alligned, in an odd sort of way.

This young, single girl found herself pregnant about 6 months ago, and shared the news with me when I stopped in for ice cream. Despite the fact that she was not married, making minimum wage, living with her parents, and had no liscence or car, she seemed pretty excited about it. She didn't seem to know, what we all thought but did not say.

Well, yesterday, I got a call from her boss who is a friend of mine. She told me this girl (I will call her Kim for the sake of simplifying the story) went in for a prenatal appointment, where they discovered that there was no heartbeat, and she was admitted to the hospital. Then she said the oddest thing to me. Kim was asking for ME. Of course, I thought wow, this was really uncomfortable, and very inconvenient, since the hospital was so far away. It was already passed 8:00 pm when I got the news, so I thought I would add it to my busy schedule the next day between my daughter's dentist appointment and closing on a house we sold.

The next afternoon, with my daughter and two of her friends in tow, I went in to the hospital and up to the maternity ward. I had the kids sit in the family waiting room while I asked for her room number and walked up the hall to see her.
