Read 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 practical support guide for anyone who has suffered the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy, at birth or in infancy.
Zoe Clark-Coates, and her husband Andy, have personally faced the loss of five babies. Out of their experiences came the charity The Mariposa Trust (more often known by its leading division Saying Goodbye), offering support to thousands of grieving parents and relatives around the world each week. In her first book Saying Goodbye Zoe wrote a moving account of their experiences and how they found a way through to provide help and support for others.
In The Baby Loss Guide Zoe provides a supportive and practical guide to walk people through their darkest days of suffering and give them hope for the future. Through practical advice interlaced with personal stories from individuals who have been there, she explores the different types of baby loss, the major myths and assumptions around baby loss and the grieving process and tackles the big taboos such as intimacy following loss, returning to work and trying for another child. Whether looking to help yourself or a bereaved loved one, this companion will provide compassionate comfort and support through grief.
