For those who have suffered pregnancy loss, whether through stillbirth, abortion, miscarriage or IVF failure, the feelings of loss and grief are often more long-lasting and far-reaching than expected.
In this groundbreaking and inspiring book, psychotherapist and counsellor Kim Kluger-Bell breaks through the wall of silence surrounding one of society's last taboos. Drawing on personal testimonies, she stresses the importance of acknowledging grief and the depth of the loss. By dealing with the emotions that arise in response to the loss rather than suppressing them, as people are often encouraged to do, she shows it is possible to move on and begin to participate in life again.
Full of practical and helpful advice this book will be invaluable not only to women who have experienced pregnancy loss but also to their partners, families and friends.
