From Library Journal
In contrast to the comprehensive psychological, medical, and social services approach presented to parents by Ingrid Kahn and Perry-Lynn Maffit's A Silent Sorrow: Pregnancy Loss ( LJ 1/93), this handbook by two bereaved mothers focuses on helping mothers to acknowledge and grieve the death of their unborn child. The authors share their intimate feelings and those of the 100 diverse women whom they interviewed about maternal love, loneliness, confusion, responses of their partners and doctors, and obstacles to grieving. Painfully moving anecdotes in the respondents' own words, combined with informed commentary, make this text a detailed and insightful guide to understanding just what a bereaved mother feels. Recommended.

I found myself comparing my situation to these women - and of course, everyone has their own story.
did not find incredibly helpful overall.
book is well-writen and authors have both, unfortunetly had a miscarriage so you are reading from authors who actually understand your situation. However, book is from 1993 and VERY outdated.
for example, I had 3 ultrasounds before my first trimester miscarriage- when this book was dated women still do not even routinely have ultrasounds at all- let alone hear their baby's heart and see them growing week-to-week to only then loose your child is much different then a positive pregnancy test and then a loss before you even had your first prenatal appointment- although equally devastating- not the same- as medical science has come a long way in the last 25+years (which is when this was published).
this book actually made me feel worse- did not help exactly- needed to keep looking.
Having a miscarriage is horrible. It is devastating. This book describes all the emotions and feelings. I don't wish a miscarriage on anyone. We experienced a 1st trimester loss 3 weeks ago. This book has done amazing things to help me process, validate, and accept what has happened. Thank you for writing this book!
