From the Back Cover
After a miscarriage, a stillbirth, or the death of an infant, well-meaning friends and family often advise, "You can always try again". But for a woman who has experienced such a heartbreaking loss, conceiving another child can be fraught with mixed emotions. Along with joy and hope come worries, questions, and often, renewed sorrow at the memory of her previous pregnancy. This guide, filled with up-to-date medical information and written by a woman who herself experienced a successful pregnancy after the loss of her first baby, can help. It offers guidance for women asking such questions as:
-- Why did it happen -- and how can I make sure it doesn't happen again?
-- Will my next pregnancy be considered high risk?
-- How long should I wait before getting pregnant again? And once I'm pregnant, should I put off sharing the news with others?
-- Should I keep the same doctor, go to the same hospital, use the same baby things?
-- What can I expect at prenatal exams?
-- How can I cope with my anxiety?
-- Will I ever be able to love another baby as much as I loved the one I lost?
Pregnancy after a loss can be a time of great emotional upheaval -- but also, a time of healing and hope. With this sensible guide, you can ease your anxieties -- and learn to look forward to the future as you make peace with the past.

I look forward to using this book during the remainder of my pregnancy. I would recommend it to anyone who has experienced a stillbirth.
i haven't even started TTC again since we lost our baby 6 weeks ago (emma was stillborn on 3/18 at 25 weeks), but bought this book after reading the amazing reviews on it. i read "empty cradle, broken heart" and it didn't even compare to this book. it's very thorough and goes over every possible reason for losing a pregnancy, reasons i hadn't even considered. it gave me lots of ideas of what to ask the doctor and what tests to ask for. reading the stories of women who have gone on to have healthy pregnancies and bring home a baby after suffering a loss (or multiple losses) gives me so much hope. i tore through this book in 4 days which is a record for me. i just wanted to keep reading and soaking up all the information. i'll probably end up rereading it once i actually get pregnant again. it really covers so much and gives me so much comfort to know i'm not alone. HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who has lost a baby or pregnancy.
