Description - A Silent Sorrow by Ingrid Kohn
This text should provide guidance for families seeking emotional and practical support after a pregnancy loss. Now completely revised and updated to reflect recent findings in medical procedures, laws governing pregnancy termination, and the complex issues surrounding pregnancy loss and reproductive technologies, this guide aids couples who have experienced pregnancy loss and helps them to understand the mourning process. The authors address the issues of why and how men and women grieve differently; the potential impact of pregnancy loss on one's career; how to cope with ending an impaired pregnancy; the dual burden of pregnancy loss and infertility, and how to handle pregnancies that occur after such a loss. This text draws from interviews with bereaved parents to illustrate coping strategies that have proven effective in difficult situations. It contains practical suggestions for each topic it covers, and is a positive first step for bereaved parents and their families, providing support and guidance to help resolve their grief and enable them to look to the future with hope.
