Miscarriage: Your Questions Answered
(Element Guide Series)

Ursula Markham


Though one in three pregnancies ends in miscarriage, it remains a taboo topic that's subject to misunderstandings and myths. Miscarriage: Your Questions Answered, a book in the Element Guide series, explores the emotional and physical realities of healing from miscarriage in a clear, authoritative, and immanently sensitive manner. Author Ursula Markham, a hypnotherapist and counselor who specializes in working with women recovering from miscarriages, has written a highly compassionate and informative text. Markham explores the different stages of miscarriage and possible causes. She encourages women who have experienced miscarriage and their families to allow themselves to grieve the death of the potential child, and she stresses the importance of memorial services and mementos as part of the healing process. A chapter on complementary therapies (including acupuncture, aromatherapy, hypnosis, and herbal remedies) focuses on holistic healing. Markham's hypnotherapy background serves her well in the chapter on relaxation as a tool for healing and moving forward towards future pregnancy. A resource guide includes organizations in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
