Empty Arms: Coping With Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Infant Death Surviving the First Hours and Beyond
by Sherokee Ilse
Empty Arms is a unique and encouraging 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. 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.
