Loss of A Baby

Death of A Dream : Understanding Maternal Grief

Book - 1997
Rate this:
When a baby dies, the grief felt by the parents is often profound. But all too commonly, this pain goes unacknowledged, or is met by silence, or dismissed with platitudes. For the mother who has lost a child, the results of containing rather than expressing her feelings can be very serious - for herself and her family. In this text Margaret Nicol gives an insight into how a woman reacts to a miscarriage, a still-birth or a cot death. Using real-life stories, her aim is to help newly-bereaved mothers find a way out of the isolation and loneliness that normally follows their experience.
