I received this book about a month ago and finished reading it within just a few days. The authors are writing specifically for nurses and others who will be companioning families when they lose a baby in the hospital. I see this as being applicable for doulas as well.

As a doula who assists women who have lost childen prior to delivery, it is nice to have guidance and ideas about how I can help the family make this the most gentle, loving situation possible given the sad circumstances. But as a doula, I help bridge the transition from home to hospital back to home- this book does not cover everything that would be helpful in my work, but it doesn't propose to.

As a resource for how to companion families experiencing perinatal loss in the hospital, this book is second to none. Recommending it for a perinatal loss doula training I am helping to design.

All the best...

This book is a book I would advise anyone to read. With the stories of the different families and experiences made it very real of what people go through on this time. Giving the knowledge on how to lift clients up in this time of grief made this book even more valuable.
