Author(s): Ann Douglas
A guide to pregnancy after suffering the loss of an infant, miscarriage, or stillbirth. Issues discussed include: the facts about pregnancy loss and neonatal death; how to determine if you're ready for another pregnancy; common fertility myths; support after you've decided to tell people you're pregnant again; and prenatal testing risks and benefits. The book offers a helping hand to women coping with their loss and at the same time contemplating future pregnancies. It also offers insights into "high-risk" pregnancies, understanding each trimester's common concerns, anticipating labour, dealing with a subsequent loss, deciding whether to try again, and honouring the baby you lost while loving the baby in your arms.
Featured in The Dallas Morning News.
