Written by one of the world’s leading baby loss support experts, The Baby Loss Guide is designed to help you navigate this complex issue. Whether you have personally encountered loss, or are supporting people through this harrowing time, this book provides practical and compassionate advice.
Zoe and her husband Andy have personally faced the loss of five babies. Out of their experiences came the charity The Mariposa Trust(more often known by its primary division Saying Goodbye), offering support to thousands of grieving parents and relatives around the world each week. In her first bestselling book, Saying Goodbye, Zoe wrote a moving account of their experiences and how they found a way through loss.
In The Baby Loss Guide Zoe provides a supportive and practical guide to walk people through their darkest days of suffering and give them hope for the future. The first half of the book answers the many questions those who encounter loss ask themselves and others, which until now have resulted in people spending hours exploring the internet to gain answers and insight. 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 is recent or historic, this support is a precious gift that will help an individual walk the scary path of grief. Zoe’s friendly and down to earth approach means she removes the often over used medical terminology, and this makes The Baby Loss Guide readable, easy to absorb and a vital source of information and help.
