"... Courageous, moving accounts from the fierce front lines of infant loss are filled with rare beauty and insistent love. They were Still Born will help heal the bereaved and illuminate a culture that has for too long closed its eyes to the pain and devastation of stillbirth..." - Lorraine Ash, author of Life Touches Life: A Mother's Story of Stillbirth and Healing. Many well-known names in the infant loss field (authors, researchers, fathers, and leaders) share a significant piece of their story. Nothing quite like this book! Very affirming and enlightening; helps parents realize the normalcy of grief and that there is hope.
The book also has a significant section on stillbirth causes and prevention including emerging research - on cord/placenta problems, fetal growth restriction, infection, decreased movement/kick counting, and more.
