There is much to know about how to deal with an impending miscarriage. You may want to ask the hospital or your clinic if they have a book/booklet (more than a sheet or two which is very limited in scope and advice) on miscarriage.
We have a book, Miscarriage: A Shattered Dream that offers specific help for right now and afterwards. Another option is Too Soon a Memory. Both are rather short and very readable offering helpful information for now and later. Downloadable at www.MemorEmedia.com or ordered from our eShop.
Another helpful resources is the 14 page eZine #4 on Miscarriage (and the Holidays).
