This review is from: Baby Dust (Paperback)While this isn't great literature, it's a good read and I found it particularly comforting to be in the presence of other women who have suffered miscarriage.
I bought it after I suffered my second miscarriage in three months and was in a really grim place. People were great after the first miscarriage but after the second, they just didn't know how to speak to me so I needed to be with other women who were telling me their story and where I wouldn't feel so alone. There are some gruesome descriptions in the book and readers may feel the need to put it down and have a little cry (I did!) because it may evoke painful memories. Readers may also recognise some of the crass ways the medical profession treat women who are going through miscarriage and the author has drawn on the experience of hundreds of women to craft these details into her book.
When I had finished reading it, I felt very comforted and more hopeful than I had in weeks. Perhaps the most poignant part is in the last few pages. Read it and you'll see what I mean.
