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.

I wouldn't have made it through the grief of my miscarriage without this book. It validated my feelings and showed me I was entitled to grieving for my baby in my own way and time. It also helped me understand how my husband was feeling.

The book is divided into several chapters aimed at and explaining the feelings of all the parties involved: mothers, fathers, children, relatives/friends and even health workers. It deals not only with miscarriages but still births. If you or someone you know is going through baby loss, this book is an absolute must-read. I have loaned my copy to a friend whose sister-in-law had stillborn twins; she found it really helpful to understand the grieving process and understand what to say/not to say and when and how. I still refer to this book when someone I know has a miscarriage.

I lost my first baby at 20 weeks and wasn't sure where to turn. People it a miscarraige and that was just too weak a word. This book helped me through an exceptionally difficult time. It is full of stories of ordinary women like me who suffer the trauma and grief of losing a baby - no matter what stage of pregnancy or birth you are at. A lovely and most appreciated book.
