Read full description of the books:



This is the first book I read since my son died that really got it.

A few small bits are somewhat dated - for example, there are now online support groups and forums that weren't around in the early 90's, and, thankfully, people are more aware of the real losses that occur in miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant death, and so are more sensitive. Doctors, family members, etc., are less likely these days to dismiss the loss, and hospitals are better at giving parents choices on whether to hold their child, dress them, etc. These aren't criticisms so much as a plea for an updated version, because the book is wonderfully helpful and healing.

The book is realistic and accessible. It doesn't tell you that you can heal quickly, or provide you with a set of one-size-fits-all steps. It doesn't give false promises. The author has worked extensively with bereaved parents, and quotes from interviews are included in each chapter without commentary. Each chapter also includes a helpful "points to remember" list at the end.

The book addresses the topic with breadth - everything from physical healing, ways to affirm your baby's existence, support networks, dealing with how the loss affects your extended family, the emotions involved in being pregnant and parenting after a loss, and more. I will be passing this book on to my baby's grandparents, since they may also find it helpful, and coming back to it as I continue finding my way through the grief process. This isn't just a one-time read - it's a handbook, a lifeline, and a source of reassurance that you are NOT crazy, you are NOT stuck, you are NOT lost, and you CAN, with time and effort, heal the wound without forgetting or dismissing your baby.
