This compassionate book offers insight and information for all parents whose babies have died, their families and friends, and professionals who care for them.
Every year in the UK over 10,000 babies die before birth or shortly afterwards. For the parents, the grief is hard to bear. In this book, parents who have lost a baby tell their stories. They speak about what happened, how they felt, how they have been helped by others and how they helped themselves.
Using letters from and interviews with many bereaved parents, Nancy Kohner and Alix Henley have written a book which offers understanding of what it means to lose a baby and the grief that follows. 'When a Baby Dies' also contains valuable information about why a baby dies, hospital practices, the process of grieving, sources of support, and the care parents need in future pregnancies.
'When a Baby Dies'is produced in co-operation with SANDS (the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society)
