Love, Labour and Loss: Stillbirth and Neonatal Death
For many parents the loss of a child through neonatal death or stillbirth is their first close encounter with bereavement but they often find there is inappropriate advice or counselling. With personal testimony from many who have experienced loss, this book gives positive and constructive help. It covers a range of common medical conditions that may contribute to stillbirth, the difficult problems of dealing with the loss of a child in intensive care and coping with the loss of babies for whom post-mortems could offer no satisfactory explanations.
