Empty Arms (also in Spanish) is a unique and encouraging small book that reaches out to all who have been touched by infant death or miscarriage. It is the first written material newly bereaved parents should turn to when they learn their baby has died. The sooner the better since it helps parents slow down, gain some control, make some plans, and get some valuable help learning about options for delivery, welcoming baby, involving family, creating memories, along with saying goodbye and other imminent issues like announcing baby's birth and death, going back to work, couple communication, helping siblings understand and more.
With compassion and sensitivity, the author, who has been there herself, offers practical suggestions and support for the decision-making at the time of the loss and in the days and months that follow. Contains an excellent bibliography and resource section of 10 pages. There is nothing like this to guide parents at the time of their loss.
"Thank you for your book, Empty Arms, which we were given before our baby was delivered. It gave us the courage to make the hard decision that proved to be the medicine to mend our broken hearts." Debbie Crippen.
"This book was a tremendous inspiration to my patient. I feel you have done a great service to bereaved parents everywhere." Stephen Larson M.D., Ob-Gyn.
