Practical and compassionate support with a day-by-day resource to navigate the path of grief
By Zoe Clark-Coates
A groundbreaking book that will change the taboo nature of baby loss, allowing for more open discussion, acceptance and support for the bereaved and those around them
A powerful, taboo-busting book that provides compassionate support to those facing their darkest hour.
The Baby Loss Guide is the first book on baby loss to combine lived experience and practical guidance. Written for men and women it answers the questions that until now have resulted in people spending hours on the internet to get the answers they crave. With the potential to become the leading title in this area for many years to come, it provides information, support and advice to parents experiencing loss as well those who are supporting loved ones through grief. Competing titles in this genre are memoirs (including Zoe's first book Saying Goodbye) or medical heavy, technical accounts. Zoe's friendly and down to earth tone is a fresh approach making The Baby Loss Guide unique, readable and easy to absorb.
Interlaced with personal stories from both men and women who have been there, it tackles the many myths, taboos and assumptions around loss.It then provides clear guidance and advice on how to navigate life after your world implodes. Most importantly it provides hope for the future.
Following the devastating loss of five babies, Zoe decided to use her counselling qualifications and twenty years of experience in the business and charity sectors to improve support for anyone who suffers baby loss. She founded the Mariposa Trust with her husband, which in just five years has become one of the leading support charities in the UK, reaching over 50,000 people each week across the world. The Secretary State for Health appointed Zoe to co-chair a new national review of loss across the NHS and the UK. She conducts 3-5 TV and radio appearances each week and has become a regular guest and commentator on BBC Breakfast and ITV.
