A child in mind: the unconceived, barely conceived, unusually conceived -- Derailed: early miscarriage -- A conspicuous absence: late miscarriage -- Again and again and again: recurrent miscarriage -- Ripples: partners, family members, others -- Efforts to remember, pressure to forget: funerals, memorials, campaigns.
Though approximately one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, it remains a rarely talked about, under-researched, and largely misunderstood area of women's health. This profoundly necessary book--the first comprehensive portrait of the psychological, emotional, medical, and cultural aspects of miscarriage--aims to help break that silence. With candor, warmth, and empathy, psychotherapist Julia Bueno blends women's stories (including her own) with research and analysis, exploring the effect of pregnancy loss on women and highlighting the ways in which our society fails to effectively respond to it. The result is a galvanizing, urgent, and moving exploration of a too-often-hidden human experience, and a crucial resource for anyone struggling with--or seeking to better understand--miscarriage. -- from back cover.
