    Very informative

    Well laid out and informative. There aren't many books out there (that I could find) that deal with this subject. Don't bother looking in the pregnancy section of B&N¿I found this with the other books dealing with loss.

    MEANINGFUL HELP

    This book brought fresh tears to my eyes as it carried me back both to the sudden trauma of losing my daughter sixteen months ago and the prolonged trauma that followed -- that of the inadequate responses of friends and relatives. The chapter on the reactions of family and friends touched on my experience of feeling that the depths of my tragedy and profundity of my sorrow kept those I needed most at a painful distance. It was a comfort to recognize myself in the pages that discussed this pattern. After the loss, I was so preoccupied with my own needs that it was hard for me to reach out to my husband and understand how and why his experience differed from mine. The chapter on the father's experience helped me to see more clearly what he had to endure -- and was forced to keep bottled up inside -- because as a man, his grief was little recognized by those around him. Finally, the chapter on becoming pregnant again offered a sober and realistic look at the medical concerns and emotional turmoil that a future pregnancy might bring, but it also offered a ray of hope that should make the sadness easier to bear. -- A.C., New York

    GOOD RESOURCE FOR SOMEONE WITH A RECENT LOST OF FETUS/BABY

    THE BOOK WAS EASY TO READ AND COMFORTING FOR SOMEONE TO REALIZE THAT THEY ARE NOT ALONE IN THEIR LOSS. IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT MISCARRIAGE IS NOT TREATED THE SAME AS FULL TERM LOSS,AS NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT, YOU HAVE LOST A CHILD YOU WERE WAITING FOR AND IS NO MORE. WE FOUND IT A GOOD READ AND VERY INFORMATIVE.

    A comfort found in knowledge

    Sadly, my family and I experienced the shock of stillbirth firsthand at 29 weeks of pregnancy in March 2009. It felt like no pain I have ever known. My son was healthy up until that point, and suddenly everything I thought I knew became questionable. He would have been our second child.

    I have always been an avid reader, so in trying to understand my journey of grief and pain, I went in search of information. I was unable to find any books on the shelves dealing with the subject of stillbirth in the stores, but found this one online. It was helpful, informative and thought provoking. Although a couple of the chapters didn't apply to my situation, I read them to get an understanding of other scenarios related to infant and fetal death.

    I would highly recommend this book to any family dealing with pregnancy loss.
