Lost:Healing the Pain after Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Death
It's something we almost never talk about, but the fact
is that up to a third of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. In this week's
Yikes I'm a Grown-up, Lisa Birnbach explained the changing ways in which
women and the medical community are dealing with pregnancy loss.
The heartache of miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death affects roughly 50,000 U.S. families every year. This revised and expanded edition of Empty Cradle, Broken Heart offers reassurance to parents who struggle with anger, guilt and despair after such tragedy. Deborah Davis encourages grieving and makes suggestions for coping. Added to this edition is new information on issues such as the death of one or more babies from a multiple birth, pregnancy interruption and the questioning of aggressive medical intervention. There is also a special chapter for fathers as well as a chapter on "protective parenting" to help anxious parents enjoy their precious living children. Doctors, nurses, relatives, friends and parents facing infant loss will find support and reassurance in this gentle guide.
