My son passed away over six months ago but this book just came out. I wish I would have had it sooner but it was still helpful to read now. This book covers so many aspects of losing a child or knowing that your child will pass. This is a great resource for so many - bereaved parents, hospitals, people close to bereaved families.
I really liked how the book was set up. I didn't read this book cover to cover because not everything applied to me. The author was clear in pointing out that it was okay to skip around. Everyone's experiences are different and that is why it's often hard to find a good book.
I can see myself purchasing more copies in the future or recommending others to purchase this book. Much love to all of you who also need this book.
As an OB Nurse who works with family going through loss, this book should be given to all parents before they are discharged. It is truly a handbook to help them maneuver through not only the decisions but the emotions when experiencing the greatest loss that can be imagined. With kindness and grace she validates, supports and guides parents as well as giving them links to support to help them as they go through their heartbreaking journey. If your hospital is looking for a resource to give parents after birth, please, look into this book. In essence, we are throwing them a life line.
This book. I am so grateful that Amie followed her calling and wrote to this heartbreaking subject. She tackled so many difficult subjects in this honest handbook. I wish I had this 16 years ago when I lost my beautiful son to stillbirth. It would have helped me navigate the endless decisions I had to make. It covers so many different topics that a parent faces on this grief journey. Thank you thank you thank you, Amie. This book is a gentle companion and much needed in the miscarriage/infant loss world.
I should first say that my wife wrote this book. With that being said, without her writings I would not have made it through our loss. I can only hope that when you need a book to help you with your loss, that you or someone who loves you gets you this book.
This book is a very practical, helpful guide for parents that have lost a child. I wish I would have read this book before experiencing delivering a stillborn baby -- I think it would be good for all expecting parents to read this in case something happens I think this book would allow them to make decisions such as taking photos, spending as much time with their baby as possible -- I wish I would have spent more time with my baby and if I would have read this earlier I may have done that. Thank you for sharing your experience and helping others find their way.
Navigating the Unknown is an incredible resource and tool for bereaved parents that helps serve as a guide during the most difficult time of their lives. Amie shares details and resources on all aspects of 'how to' when knowing your baby will, or has died; postpartum changes/healing, dealing with family and friends, arranging funeral/burial services, and re-entry into the normal world. Easy to read and easy to apply as needed to your unique situation. This book is heartbreaking, yet filled with hope for those who experience the unimaginable loss of a child.
"Navigating the Unknown" is a book that all parents should have access to when navigating the death of their baby. This practical guide is a light during times of darkness. Amie does a beautiful job exposing the unknowns, which drastically decreases anxiety that accompanies these situations. I only wish I had this book when my son died.
Amie is an amazing writer. Her words will help guide you through the most difficult times you will ever face. There are different sections for all different scenarios and you can figure out what you want to read or not read. I hope that parents will not need this book but highly recommend it if they do. It is also helpful for friends and family to read so they can understand what the bereaved parents are going through, the decisions they make, and how they can help.
