A guide to getting pregnant after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death explores the practical and emotional issues surrounding this issue.
From the Back Cover
After a miscarriage, a stillbirth, or the death of an infant, well-meaning friends and family often advise, "You can always try again". But for a woman who has experienced such a heartbreaking loss, conceiving another child can be fraught with mixed emotions. Along with joy and hope come worries, questions, and often, renewed sorrow at the memory of her previous pregnancy. This guide, filled with up-to-date medical information and written by a woman who herself experienced a successful pregnancy after the loss of her first baby, can help. It offers guidance for women asking such questions as:
-- Why did it happen -- and how can I make sure it doesn't happen again?
-- Will my next pregnancy be considered high risk?
-- How long should I wait before getting pregnant again? And once I'm pregnant, should I put off sharing the news with others?
-- Should I keep the same doctor, go to the same hospital, use the same baby things?
-- What can I expect at prenatal exams?
-- How can I cope with my anxiety?
-- Will I ever be able to love another baby as much as I loved the one I lost?
Pregnancy after a loss can be a time of great emotional upheaval -- but also, a time of healing and hope. With this sensible guide, you can ease your anxieties -- and learn to look forward to the future as you make peace with the past.See all Product description

i found the book extremely positive, and mentioned many women who had gone onto have successful pregnancies after a loss for various reasons. i read it and felt alot more positive.
the only draw back would be the fact that as the author is based in america, some of the advice would not be relevant to our NHS system
Yes, the author is upbeat, yes she did go on to have a healthy baby, rather than finding her smug I found that it gave me hope, something that was altogether lacking in those dark times. It is written in a very down to earth manner, it really felt at times like reading something written by a friend. Her advice about pushing for medical tests was helpful to me, as in Italy the healthcare system is different from the UK and this book gave me the help I needed to be proactive in my care with my subsequent pregnancy.
