Most women will approach a pregnancy confident that they will have a normal healthy baby at the end. Yet each year an astonishing one out of every five conceptions will result in a pregnancy loss, very often leaving their families bereft and faced with uncertainty. Frequently this loss not only impacts on this pregnancy but also on subsequent pregnancies. It takes courage to attempt another pregnancy after loss. "Life After Baby Loss" has been written to provide the support that is often hard to find and answers to some of the many questions, both emotional and medical. The author, Nicola Miller-Clendon is a practising mid-wife and childbirth educator, but it is her role as a woman who has lost four babies at various stages of pregnancy that particularly qualifies her to write this book.
