Review

"Dr. Young and Amy Zavatto have produced the most comprehensive patient-directed book on the subject of miscarriage and pregnancy loss that that I have seen. It presents complete and scientifically sound information on the causes and prevention of recurrent miscarriage and does so in a fashion that does not require a medical education to understand….It will be an excellent guide for women and their partners who have experienced these problems."—Richard H. Schwarz, M.D., FACOG, FRCOG, Vice Chairman for Clinical Affairs, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Maimonides Medical Center Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine

"This book deals with an issue that is not much talked about. It offers solutions in a down to earth manner that is easily accessible to everyone….I wish this book had been around when I was having the personal experience of multiple miscarriages."—Rebecca Lisa Shiffman, MD, Director of Obstetrics and Vicechair, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, New York Methodist Hospital

"Miscarriage is among the most common and most misunderstood aspects of all modern medicine. Dr Bruce Young, a pioneer and international leader in perinatal medicine, and Amy Zavatto, a patient who has experienced a miscarriage, have teamed up to write a comprehensive and compassionate analysis of this subject. All women who anticipate getting pregnant would benefit from this invaluable and unique text."—Frank A. Chervenak, M.D., Given Foundation Professor and Chairman, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, New York Weill Cornell Medical Center

"Comprehensive information on the causes and preventions of miscarriage."—Miami Herald

This book contained a lot of information and you don't need a medical degree to understand the terminology. After 3 miscarriages, I wanted to be as informed as possible about causes and prevention because I know miscarriage is not something that "just happens". This book answered a lot of questions and made my discussions with my doctor more productive. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced even one miscarriage.

This is a wonderful book. It is a perfect blend of valuable, well-explained medical information and encouraging, uplifting real-life stories of how different couples overcame a variety of fertility issues to realize their dreams of parenthood. It is very positively written and I would recommend it to anyone who is having trouble conceiving, especially if they have suffered a miscarriage.

I recently had a miscarriage after artificial insemination treatment. (currently seeing a fertility specialist). My doctor gave me the same old nonsense "these things just happen". I wasn't too sure of it. I was desperate to have some answers. So I read this book. And i was so encouraged that I immediately made an appointment to see Dr Young. I'm fortunate to work and live about 10 minutes from NYU medical center here in NYC. He is the most thorough and Comprehensive doctor I have ever dealt with. His bedside manner is warm, comforting and genuine. We have started looking for answers and he is confident that I will get pregnant again and will do everything that is medically available to ensure I carry full term. I have my fingers crossed and hoping for the best. Read this book, take lots of notes and go to your doctor armed with questions. And if you find that you are unsatisifed, switch doctors as soon as possible. Don't waste your time with doctors who dismiss your concerns. And don't settle for dumb answers. And if you are fortunate And live in NY don't see anyone but him. He's awesome. This book will help you through this very awful and sad time. It's helped me tremendously.

This is the best book I have read on miscarriage. It has helped me tremendously to deal with and understand my own miscarriages. After reading Miscarriage, Medicine, and Miracles, I have great hope and am ready to try again.

This book is lame and I can't believe I wasted my money on it. Maybe if you have just had one miscarriage and you've never used something called the internet to look information up, this book would be helpful to you. But for an old hat like me, who just completed mc number 3, well....I think I could have probably written this book from the hours I've put in with "Dr. Google."

Pass. You'll learn nothing new, nor gain any new insights, which is what I was hoping to do. :(

This is a good book. I recently had a still birth at 24 weeks and it was great to hear all the different stories. I had an incompetent cervix and what my doctor suggested for the next pregnancy is exactly what the doctor in the book did. Everyone only hear stories about people getting pregnant and having healthy babies, but no one talks about the other side. Great book if you want to be informed

This book is great and has a lot of information and really gives you hope that it can happen. Unfortunately it makes you want to see this doctor and decreases you sense of confidence in your own when you don't get answers and they are not pushing to find those answers.

I discovered this book while my best friend was having trouble conceiving her first child. She went through many miscarriages and was trying to find a book that spoke to both sides of dealing with a miscarriage: the medical and the emotional. I found this book and she loved it. It was exactly what she had been looking for. It has helped her deal with all the emotions of going through a miscarriage and has recommended it to several others who have been going through the same experience she has.
