I don't usually write reviews, but I'll do it for this book since there are only 10 of them and several seem to be written by people who haven't experienced pregnancy loss.

Our first daughter died when I was 4.5 months pregnant, and I'm currently 4 months pregnant with a son. As some of the other writers have mentioned, it's true that some of the medical information in this book could use updating, but the medical information is not why I'm giving it five stars -- from the moment I opened the bo

When I was pregnant with my son the year after my daughter died, I wished for a book like this. I often thought I should/would write a book for moms like me. But, in my most recent pregnancy 4 years later, I found this book and realized a great resource already existed! This book answers every question and anticipates every experience that a subsequent pregnancy includes. I highly recommend this book.

This is an informative and supportive book for pregnancy after a miscarriage or stillborn loss. Some of the technical information seems a bit outdated, but the suggestions and tools for maintaining a positive, healthy attitude (or just surviving the pregnancy) are still helpful. This book may be helpful to those who are experiencing this situation or if you are close family or friend to someone who is experiencing it.

Probably outdated & not the best resource on the topic, although the trimester-by-trimester approach was interesting. Still, I ended up skimming because I'm not actually pregnant again yet and although I understand it happens, the idea of stillbirth or infant death is pretty horrifying and, in my mind at least, a different level of horror than early miscarriage. And not necessarily one I want to be confronted with right now, so...

This isn't a book that I'd actually say I liked, but it is a book that I found very helpful. And I'm not really into self-help books. If someone else is going through this issue, I highly recommend this book to you. Lots of personal stories and lots of insight. Made me realize that I wasn't alone and certainly not as crazy as I'd originally felt myself to be.

Recommends it for: not for someone who is pregnant
This is a book on how to deal with a miscarriage and the fears it raises for future pregnancies. While the parts I read did accomplish what I wanted in just knowing what thoughts and fears are normal, and therefore not crazy, it was full of way too many harrowing stories of pregnancy loss for me to want to read it all. I don't need more things to worry about next time!
