Editorial Reviews


"Our Only Time is a love letter to health professionals who work

with parents whose babies have died. Written and edited by a mother

who herself received quality bereavement care, this book doesn't

tell caregivers what to do, but rather, provides insight and modeling

largely in the form of powerful narratives written by bereaved parents

who were deeply touched by the kind words, small gestures, and

caring intentions of their caregivers. Each story imparts a lesson on

what grieving parents find comforting, meaningful, and beneficial.

For midwives, nurses, physicians, technicians, counselors, therapists,

chaplains, and social workers, this heartfelt book offers clarity and

inspiration for offering the care that parents crave; care that fosters

their coping, adjustment, and transformational healing."

Empty Cradle, Broken Heart: Surviving the Death of Your Baby


"Patient and family narratives are powerful teaching tools, and in

her book, Our Only Time, Amie Lands provides us with an invaluable

resource. In this collection of narratives and guidance for medical

caregivers, she teaches us how to be better for our patients. Through

their own words, we gain an extraordinary view into patients' lives

and experiences. The honesty of these families and their willingness

to share the most intimate, raw, painful, joyful, and sacred moments of

their lives is humbling, and it is important that we honor them and hear

them. As medical providers, realizing the impact that we have on

families can be an immense burden, and recognizing this, Amie Lands

uses her experience and the knowledge and experience of others to

provide us with guidance. Our Only Time is a gift for medical caregivers

and their patients."

"Our Only Time is a powerful and important book that resonates

with the voices of women for women and their families, voices spoken

in requests to their health care providers. Amie Lands' work continues

to contribute to our understanding of pregnancy and infant loss, and

to assist caring others help us integrate our losses into our lives in

meaningful ways."

--DEBORAH DAVIDSON, PhD, Associate Professor, editor and

contributing author of The Tattoo Project: Commemorative Tattoos, Visual

Culture, and the Digital Archive
