After losing my first baby at 13 weeks of pregnany due to what is termed as "missed abortion" (the baby dying in the womb but not detected until ultrasound scan etc) I was absolutely desperate for information. This book has it all! From when can I start to try again, through to all your emotions after the event. It is very easy to read and I did not put the book down until I had read every word! If you are looking for that all to often "non-existant" reason as to why your baby died, then this book may well provide some answers and help you in your hour of need. I would thoroughly recommend it. Prepare to shed a tear or two as you identify with what other people have been through!

2.0 out of 5 stars trying again 17 Sep 2003
By A Customer
i bought 2 books relating to the subject of pregnancy loss. unfortunately i didn't find this book particularly helpful. it read very much like a text book, filling your head with far too many other things that can go wrong. i just felt that if you are buying this book then you already have a fare idea what can go doesn't need spelling out. to be honest rather than find it reassuring i found it scared me and was written in a cold manner.
with that in mind, it does have some useful things to look out for when you want to try again, such as when you are ovulating, but that was the only thing in the book of any use.

I bought this book when you feel you want answers to your tradgedy and need to find the strength to move on. This book gives you that strength. It provides knowledge, empowers you to take cotrol and inspires you with new hope. The books helps you to cope, it wont stop your greif, nothing will but does allow forward thinking and helps alleviate your worries. It tackles issues you may not even have considered and shows you how to deal with them. This helps prepare you for what sometimes seems like ignorance of other people. Thanks to the authors for their straight, comprehensive information, I hope it can help you as it continues to help me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound, practical information and advice. 23 Mar 2001
By A Customer
An excellent book for those who have gone past the worst grieving following miscarriage or bereavement of a child. For UK readers bear in mind that its advice comes from a US obstetric perspective so may not all be relevant under the NHS system.

4.0 out of 5 stars Help when you're feeling helpless 30 Mar 2009
This book was given to me by a friend after I'd had several miscarriages and I was grievng the loss not only of my little ones but also of the blissful, trouble-free pregnancy that so many others seemed able to achieve.
The book covers facts and figures about miscarriage, stillbirth and infant loss and also your emotions following your loss and surrounding the subject of trying again, the timing of trying again, your partner's feelings, any changes you could/should make, testing etc. Whilst not all of it will be relevant to you, it may answer some of your questions and will certainy raise your awareness. Most importantly, it will hopefully provide you with some comfort knowing that you are not alone and will help you identify and find the support you need. Good luck.
