If one grieving parent sees how it made me feel and decides to try this book, then I will feel like I've helped to pass it on.

This book truly is for anyone who has suffered a pregnancy loss and is about to go through a subsequent pregnancy or is contemplating one. This book is full of stories of women, including the author, who have suffered through different kinds of pregnancy loss and have then gone on to give birth to healthy babies. After recently suffering a stillbirth, I had so many questions running through my head. Some of them being, What caused my baby to die?, Will I ever give birth to a healthy baby?, How will I ever make it through another pregnancy, Am I the only woman who has ever suffered this much pain?, How can I keep the memory alive of the baby I lost?, these are just a few examples. This book helps to answer so many of these questions. It is a very informative book because there is also so much helpful information on choosing a new doctor or keeping your old one, Questions to ask your doctor, how to decide if you are ready for a subsequent pregnancy or not, and some possible causes of pregnancy loss that sometimes go undetected. A section is also written on what to expect emotionally and physically during the three trimesters of a subsequent pregnancy and what can be done to help make it a little easier. Suffering a pregnancy loss is an extremely devastating, painful and scary time. Carol Cirulli Lanham has given me the inspiration, hope and courage to want to try again. She truly understands and you will feel her compassion and determination as you read this book. I have read it three times already and will always have it on hand. I have read many books on pregnancy loss and none of them compare to this one. Thank you Carol!

I had to write this review. If one grieving parent sees how it made me feel and decides to try this book, then I will feel like I've helped to pass it on. Ms. Lanham's conversation style was just what I needed. She covers each stage of pregnancy loss and the decision to try again by interviewing dozens of women who suffered miscarriages, preterm or term births. She presents differing opinions in an objective, yet compassionate manner. (For example: How and when to tell people that you're pregnant again after your loss). She is not preachy, but lets the interviews speak for themselves. Several times, I felt like exclaiming, "Yes! That's how I felt, too!" The book discusses both the practical and emotional implications of getting pregnant again after a loss, and doesn't overdramatize or underestimate the range of feelings we will have during this trying time. This practical, yet heartfelt treatise helped Ms. Lanham with her loss (and subsequent successful pregnancies), and it is helping me, too.

I miscarried at 10wks and did not feel this book was helpful.
My feelings of loss were not validated by the author as the majority of her example were of 3rh trimester miscarriages, stillbirth, or infant deaths. I would recommend reading "Trying Again" to couples experiencing an early pregnancy loss.

Format: Paperback
I wish I'd had this outstanding book when I was going through my subsequent pregnancy. This book addresses many concerns specific to women experiencing a subsequent pregnancy. Many of the issues that came up in my Subsequent Pregnancy After A Loss Support Group were touched on, including the desire for a child of a particular sex (either the same or different than the child you lost) and the need for more frequent monitoring during pregnancy. This book is well-organized and follows the three-trimester framework of most other pregnancy guides. However, the discussion of each trimester focuses on how women experience their pregnancy when they have suffered a loss in the past. Most meaningful to me as a mother who lost twins, this book addresses the feelings of mothers who lost multiple pregnancies and are now pregnant with a single child. I would recommend this book to any woman who is pregnant following a miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of a baby.

Format: Paperback
After reading this book, I felt more fearful about a subsequent pregnancy than before reading it. It seemed as though quite a bit of time was spent on discovering the reason for a pregnancy loss. Having experienced a full-term stillbirth, I can with authority say that this topic is in the forefront of most parent's minds after a loss. However, up to 50% of women experiencing stillbirth will NEVER find a reason for the loss. Very little is then offered to those that fall into this group, of which I am a part. For those of us in this group, I would have appreciated some insight into resolution of feelings after the pregnancy loss when no cause is found.
For those that do have a cause, it seemed as though the author felt that we must then do more to try and prevent the same from occurring again. If there is anything that I've learned from my pregnancies, it's that most things are out of my control, regardless of whether I worry or not. And no amount of worrying, or testing, will be able to prevent most causes of pregnancy loss.
The book was well-based from a technological standpoint, but a little bit empty on a spiritual level. I feel that one must have some sort of spiritual ground to stand upon before embarking on another pregnancy. To ignore this is to ignore the miracle of life itself.
I do applaud the author for having the courage to deal with her loss, and her gifts, in a very public way. I am sure that this was essential to her grieving process.
