Editorial Reviews

Claire Etheridge
Help, Comfort and Hope speaks to those who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, sudden infant death, and termination of pregnancy. Part One guides parents through the experience of bereavement and Part Two provides specific information for caregivers with empathy and first-hand knowledge. Giving this book is an act of love. Why? It provides empathy, knowledge, and healing for all who have been touched by the loss of a child. Caretakers whose intention is to "spare" the parent don't realize that they are, in fact, prolonging and complicating the grief process. People around the shocked parents often feel helpless, insecure, and at a loss as to what to do. Their "doing nothing" has the same result of complicating the grief process. Psychologist Hannah Lothrop not only paints a vivid picture of the parents reactions, often in their own words, but is equally understanding of the staff and others, gently explaining what to do (what helps heal) as well as what does not help (and in fact hinders). There is no judgment, no moralizing. Only understanding, knowledge, and hope. ---- birthpsychology.com website
