Hope and Healing After Stillbirth And New Baby Loss Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The loss of a baby brings overwhelming grief. Whether it happens before or shortly after birth, the impact is devastating and often lasts for years.

Yet, parents are often unable to access the professional help they need.

This book provides a sympathetic and expert explanation of the common recognized causes, along with important information concerning parents' rights, including difficult topics as post mortems and inquests. It covers parents' reactions, not least feelings of anger, particularly where parents blame professionals for their loss, and the relationship difficulties that often follow the loss of a baby.
