When a Baby Dies: A Handbook for Healing and Helping

 Category: Religion & Spirituality

When a Baby A Handbook for Healing and Helping is written to help families heal and provide support to healthcare professionals. Revised in 1998, the book covers individual stories of pregnancy and perinatal loss. There are specific chapters on miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, newborn death and loss in a multiple gestation pregnancy. Working from the fact that grief is normal, the book also addresses the family issues that occur as each person grieves differently. Additional chapters address the roles of individual healthcare professionals and include checklists which are helpful in caring for bereaved families.
