As a practising midwife and a mother who has lost four babies at various stages of pregnancy, including a stillbirth, Nicola Miller-Clendon is well qualified to write this book. Pregnancy loss is more common than we think. For the 57,000 babies born live each year in New Zealand another 15,000 babies are not, often leaving women and their partners bereft and faced with uncertainty. Yet there has always been a code of silence around pregnancy loss. This is the first generation of women who are beginning to talk about their losses and seek answers. This book has been written to provide the support that is often hard to find and to answer the many questions, emotional and medical, that these women have. Beginning with recovery and grieving, there are also chapters on children and loss and guidelines for family and friends. Believing that the loss of a baby at whatever stage of pregnancy should be acknowledged, Nicola offers many suggestions of different ways a family could choose to remember their baby. In a chapter entitled Men Lose Babies, Too, Nicola addresses the often very different ways men and women may handle their loss. A subsequent pregnancy after the loss of a baby can be an anxious time with many questions unique to this experience. Nicola takes the reader through each trimester, addressing these anxieties with both emotional support and medical information. An extensive resource section lists agencies and specialists for those who need further assistance and guidance. Nicola Miller-Clendon holds a Bachelor in Health Science, is currently studying towards her Masters and is a practising midwife and childbirth educator. She is the mother of five living children as well as four babies lost at various stages of pregnancy, including a stillborn son. Her two previously published books are The User's Guide to the New Zealand Baby and The User's Guide to the New Zealand Pregnancy.

Pregnancy loss can leave us with many unanswered questions, and knowing where to find answers is not always clear. This book is for you if, like me, you’ve been affected by pregnancy loss – currently or in the past. You might have had an early or late miscarriage, molar pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, or stillbirth – or you might be the partner of someone who has had one or more of these experiences. Alternatively, your friend or family member might be affected by pregnancy loss and you want ideas on how to comfort them. Or you might work in healthcare, for a charity, or be a therapist wishing to provide better pregnancy loss care. Here you’ll find practical advice and self-care strategies to help you cope during or after pregnancy loss. Plus ideas that will enable you to make sense of what’s happened – including explaining different ways you may feel; outlining what you can expect during and after your loss; how to navigate physical and mental health care (if appropriate); considering the choices you may need to make; and, if you want to, thinking about how to remember your baby. This book is designed to help you feel like you are not going through your loss alone. It is a reminder that we all react – and cope – in different ways; and respects diverse needs when it comes to getting information, support, and care. While it is not a replacement of healthcare or therapy, it signposts you to other sources of support that can assist you. With straightforward information, reflection exercises, self-help resources, and other people’s stories about how they coped with loss, you should feel better able to understand what is happening to you and more confident about seeking additional help if needed.

It is interlaced with personal stories from both men and women who have been there, and tackles the many myths, taboos and assumptions around loss. It also provides clear guidance and advice on how to navigate life following your world imploding, such as: How do I return to work? How do I know if or when I should try again for more children? How do I communicate with my partner about loss? The second half of the book offers 60-days of practical and compassionate support. Whether someone's loss be recent or historic, this support will be a wonderful gift, and will help the person walk the scary path of grief.

Best Advice on Life after Baby Arrives presents tried-and-true, practical tips for moms, from moms. Addressing a mother's needs and issues - from how to deal with the inevitable exhaustion, to reconnecting romantically with her husband, to carving out time for herself - this book provides comfort, reassurance and inspiration to women facing the demanding first months after the baby arrives. "I ended up having panic attacks right after I had my first baby, because I didn't see a light at the end of the tunnel. Well, here I am with four kids now, and I can tell you it does get better. What you're going through isn't what things will always be like. Don't let anyone, especially yourself, make you feel guilty for doing something for yourself." "Get up 30 minutes earlier than everyone else and make it clear to everyone in the house that this is your time." "As long as your baby has food in her belly, clothes on her back, and is not overly wet, then that time is yours. You don't need to get in the habit of holding the baby all the time. Babies also need to learn to become independent - they need to know that someone doesn't need to hold them all the time."

Fewer human events impact us more than the death of our child. Yet not all deaths of children are treated equally--not even in the United States. We rightfully mourn the teenager killed in the car wreck, the preteen who dies after an extended battle with leukemia, and the toddler who drowns in the pool. Yet, when a child dies inside the womb, their tragic deaths seem to be glossed-over with comments insinuating that the lives they lived inside the womb were not as meaningful as the lives of the children who lived to be a teen, preteen, or toddler. "This book is thought-provoking. Bonding between mothers and unborn babies could be far more developed in very early stages than first thought. Just thinking about this special closeness, hopefully, endears us to our unborn babies as well as those of others. [This is a] good book for those who are pregnant or those considering pregnancy."-Faith Norris, Licensed and Ordained Minister, WOG Prayer Counselor. This book reassures readers of the humanity--of the soul--of their preborn child. Candidly relayed experiences are intermingled with Biblical expositions and scientific evidence to provide validation of the right for the parent or family member to feel just as devastated as if their child had not died until after graduating from high school. Parents may find comfort and further validation for their emotions and experiences. Parents who have aborted their child may find help and hope. Preachers may find fresh perspectives from which to expound on the scriptures. Pro-life groups may find a critical missing element (or more) to further their cause. Psychologists and other counselors may find confirmation for some of their theories. Researchers interested in studying experiential phenomena may be surprised at some of the claims in this book. This book also mentions or references (to varying degrees) topics such as the vanishing twin syndrome, womb twin survivors, fetal resorption, microchimerism, maternal intuition, bonding, fatherly love, grief, near-death experiences or encounters/visions, heaven, angels, subconscious memories, fetal development, adoption, abortion, sharing pregnancy stories, sexual purity, and more.
