Grief: All I Need to Know I Learned While I Was Born by Nancy Beck Irland

The author, a Certified Nurse-Midwife, discovered a fascinating truth after the death of her son: the grief experience is actually a spiritual representation of the physical experience of birth - descent, flexion, engagement, inner rotation, restitution, and birth. The words describe both transitions.

This book offers unique, visual models for grief, comfort for the grieving, and a way to help their friends understand better, how it feels as a treasured life metamorphoses from a "presence" into a story that is carried forever inside the hearts of those who love him.
