About the Author

Amanda Ross-White is the proud mother of four beautiful children, including her twin boys Nate and Sam, who were stillborn in 2007. She is eternally grateful to watch her rainbow children, daughter Rebecca and son Alex, grow around her. Since joining the sad world of the babylost, she has become dedicated to furthering research into stillbirth and neonatal death, as well as the unique parenting and relationship challenges for babylost mothers. In her day job, she helps connect people to the medical and health information they need, and sees the need for better communication between babylost mothers and their health care providers. She graduated in 2002 from the University of Western Ontario with her MLIS and in 2000 from McGill University. Since 2004, she has worked at Queen's University as the Nursing Librarian, where she teaches information literacy to both undergraduate and postgraduate nursing students. Her research interests are on systematic reviews and the searching, retrieval and evaluation of research literature.
