5.0 out of 5 stars Validates our grief and helps us to heal, August 2, 2005
This review is from: Miscarriage: Women Sharing from the Heart (Paperback)
This book is specifically about dealing with the grief of a pregnancy loss in the 1st trimester or early 2nd trimester. The experiences and emotions of a hundred women are presented in their own words, with extensive commentary by the two authors, who give insights into all the factors that can complicate our grieving and interfere with emotional healing after a miscarriage.

I have suffered two miscarriages at 11-12 weeks. I came across this book after my second loss and found it immensely helpful in working through the unresolved emotional issues that were blocking my path to full expression and understanding of my grief. The book became almost like a friend or companion who understood how I was feeling and stayed with me as I worked through my grief.

If you have suffered a pregnancy loss, you will find so much to relate to in these pages, as well as reassurance that all your feelings (however dreadful) are a normal part of grief. It also suggests ways of working through the grieving process, expressing what you feel, and commemorating a baby who you loved with all your heart even though you may have been deprived of the chance of ever seeing it, touching it, knowing its sex or feeling it move inside you.

A book which validates our grief and helps us to work through it towards healing.
