It is commonly estimated that one in six couples are unable to conceive, one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, and 600 babies are stillborn or die soon after birth each year. The experience can be the most traumatic thing that couples ever go through. It is also very lonely and isolating. Many are desperate to read other people's local and recent stories in order to gain comfort, however there are very few New Zealand stories available in published form. Baby Gone contains 45 true stories, written from the heart by those affected. The stories give moving accounts about the conception and pregnancy experiences, but perhaps most importantly, they talk of the emotional roller-coaster that is life after loss. The stories will help readers see that they are not alone in their feelings, and that they are not going crazy.

About the Author

Jenny Douche (nee Campbell) compiled the book after losing her son, James, during late pregnancy. Jenny says, "After we lost James I desperately wanted to read stories from other women who had been through something similar. The only books I could find were either international publications or were written many years ago, there were no publications with just New Zealand stories". Jenny Douche is also the founder of the Smarter than Jack book series. The series was started in 2001 and raised over $440,000 for animal charities around the world including over $120,000 for the Royal New Zealand SPCA. Smarter than Jack was short-listed for Exporter of the Year in 2006, Jenny was short-listed for Wellingtonian of the Year in 2004, and the first book in the series won the Booksellers' Choice Special Recognition Award in 2002. The business was sold at the end of 2007. Jenny also compiled Bona Fide, 53 True Kiwi Stories about Life as a Teen and co-wrote The Kiwi Effect.
