Hope and Healing After Stillbirth And New Baby Loss

Kevin Gournay,

Hope and Healing After Stillbirth And New Baby Loss
 

About the eBook

'Offering wisdom and understanding, written with sensitivity, this book has much practical help within its pages for a loss like that feels like few others.' - Sands

Whether it happens before or shortly after birth, the loss of a baby brings overwhelming grief and parents often struggle to access the professional help they need.

In this book, Professor Kevin Gournay - who himself lost a child to stillbirth - and distinguished midwife Dr Brenda Ashcroft offer understanding of what it means to go through this bereavement, and healing advice on how to make sense of it. They give important information about parents' rights, and cover such difficult topics as post mortems and inquests. The book considers parents' reactions, not least feelings of anger, as well as offering help for, and insight into, the relationship difficulties that often follow the loss of a baby. There is support for anyone who might be experiencing anxiety or depression, advice on how other children in the family might be affected, and possible prevention and treatment for future pregnancies.

Sympathetic, expert and warmly supportive of any bereaved parent, this book also provides a guide to good practice for professionals in all relevant fields.
