Overview

This new edition of a groundbreaking work reflects important developments in the general understanding of, and research into, loss and death. Providing a wealth of information for both experienced and inexperienced midwives, the book covers topics including:

  • perinatal and neonatal loss
  • miscarriage and termination for foetal abnormality
  • death of a mother in third world and first world'settings
  • difficulties encountered during future childbearing.

Combining an authoritative research-based orientation with a critical yet human approach to this sensitive topic, the book aids midwives in providing effective care and support to those who experience loss. The author draws on relevant and largely research-based literature from a wide range of related disciplines to inform this area, which is only now receiving the attention it has long deserved.

Incl. miscarriage/termination for fetal abnormality/neonatal & perinatal loss/loss in mothers affected by HIV/AIDS/etc.
