A pregnant woman is said to be expecting, but no one expects pregnancy or newborn loss. The devastation in the aftermath of losing a baby, no matter how small, can steal your breath, and leave you with more questions than answers. Why did this happen? Did I do something wrong? Will it happen again?
Part of the award-winning Grief Diaries series featuring true stories about real life experiences, this book is a portable support group for women who’ve lost a pregnancy or newborn. Filled with answers to poignant questions, the collection of stories invites readers into a world where they’re surrounded by warmth, understanding and compassion as they seek comfort in the aftermath of their own loss.
"VITAL . . . Grief Diaries: Surviving Loss of a Pregnancy gives voice to the thousands of women who face this painful journey every day. Often alone in their time of need, these stories will play a vital role in surrounding each reader with warmth and comfort as they seek understanding and healing in the aftermath of their own loss." -JENNIFER CLARKE, obstetrical R.N., Perinatal Bereavement Committee at AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center, founder of Baby Jasmine's Angel Nursery and advocate of CuddleCots "HEALING . . . Grief Diaries: Surviving Loss of a Pregnancy gives voice to a grief so private, most women bear it alone. These diaries of pregnancy loss can heal hearts and begin to build community and acceptance to speak the unspeakable, to acknowledge each pregnancy loss and the child that would have been.

Pour a cup of tea together and know that you are no longer alone." -DIANNA VIAGIANOS ARMENTROUT, Poetry Therapist & Author
