Surviving Pregnancy Loss: A Complete Sourcebook
For Women and Their Families
Rochelle Friedman, Bonnie Gradstein
This updated book is for the one million women who annually suffer a pregnancy loss - whether by a miscarriage, stillbirth, or ectopic pregnancy - and their husbands, relatives, friends, and physicians. Surviving Pregnancy Loss includes: first-person accounts of women who have experienced pregnancy loss; a discussion by health care professionals of the physical and emotional consequences of pregnancy loss; an exploration of options for the future - trying again, choosing childlessness, or considering adopting (with all the latest information on agency, international, and private adoptions); sensitive advice on the partner's experience, the reactions of family and friends, dealing with multiple losses, and explaining loss to children; and more. Anyone who has suffered a pregnancy loss is searching for answers, searching for a friend. This book provides both.
