Editorial Reviews

Review

?Because of its wide scope (infertility, miscarriage, sudden infant death, abortion, release to adoption; emotional disappointments including handicapped babies, cesareans, premature or traumatic birth; and help for grieving children), this book will help parents and care-givers understand the great burden of all loss experience.?-American Baby's Childbirth Educator

Format: Paperback
A hospital social worker lent me this book after I suffered my second miscarriage in one year, and it helped me enormously to deal with the terrible emotional impact of both losses.
I looked at a few other books on miscarriage, but none of them displayed the empathy and understanding of this book, which takes you through the stages of grief (based on Elisabeth Kuhbler-Ross's theory) and provides heartfelt, and often heartrending stories of parents who have suffered through such losses.
I'm now pregnant with healthy twin girls, and am buying this book for a friend who just suffered a loss. It's worth every penny.

Format: Paperback
You may find this book difficult (emotionally) to read but it has wonderful information and guidance that is outstanding.
It lets the reader know they are NOT losing their mind or going crazy. It helps you deal with friends/family that wish you would just get over "it" and move on, when you know deep down you can not at the moment and it may take time and that is OKAY.
It helps one to NOT feel so lost after a pregnancy loss or any type of loss. It covers so many topics--such as handling intimacy issues. My grief counselor sent me her copy since mine was going to take a while to get to me and I am happy she did. I know I will keep this book in my home library (my copy) and read it again when times get tough. I have already read it twice. I strongly recommend it to women facing these issues. It was the best money I have spent on the subject!

This book was one of the ones that I read after a pregnancy loss that were a real help to me. I felt my grief was validated, and that was a significant step in my healing.

Format: Paperback
This book was given to me by a friend who also had lost a child. I can't say enough about this wonderful book and how it helped me to get through the most difficult experience of my life. If you or a friend have had to endure such loss and don't know where to turn or how to help this is a good place to start. This book saved my life and probably my marriage as well.
