Product description

Product Description

Although 10–25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, there is surprisingly little recognition of the devastating grief that often follows in its wake. Sadly, poor communication by medical staff and insensitive comments from well-meaning friends and family are common, while real emotional support is rare.
After experiencing a devastating miscarriage herself and finding little in the way of support, grief counselor Karin Holmes wrote How to Survive a Miscarriage to help other women in a similar situation.
How to Survive a Miscarriage addresses the emotional and physical implications of pregnancies lost before the 20th week. It guides grieving mothers through the dark times of loss towards purposeful and gentle healing with strategies for coping with sadness and guilt, suggestions for rituals, and advice on getting through subsequent pregnancies. It also addresses the physical causes and types of miscarriage, and includes a section for friends, family and partners.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a good book for both men and women 5 August 2016
By dwalsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
After suffering from a miscarriage myself this past January, I have scoured the internet for resources. When I found this book and author on Instagram, I knew it was going to be helpful. She is thorough, detailed, and very helpful. It helps to make a person who has gone through this to understand HOW to get through this. It is a good book for both men and women, parents and grandparents and friends of the couple that has gone through this, and more. I would 100% recommend this book to someone.

I was impressed by how candid and openly honest the author was in this book. Grief is such a complicated thing and while trying to navigate through very difficult and painful emotions, this book guides you to raw and truthful feelings one may experience after having a miscarriage. Her words and story are easy to relate to and comforting for the reader, offering inspiration and guidance.
