I always meant to read that SANDS 'when a baby dies' book but never really did, had subsequent child, things moved on a bit.

Am now struggling with some issues about the loss (e.g. think about it repetitively when I come across someone at same stage of pregnancy, think about it I would say too much when alone in an evening).

I wondered if a book might help but the one I mentioned above seems to be more for parents who have just lost a baby, or there are books for people who are in a subsequent pregnancy.

Does anyone know of any more general books - I am not looking for medical explanations for example, more ways of dealing with things later on, or stories from people who are at a similar stage to me, a few years down the line.

Thanks in advance, hope this hasn't upset anyone.

Hi, I am not sure if it is what you are looking for, but my book After Finley is available from http://www.lulu.com/shop/mel-scott/after-finley/paperback/product-15971666.html and the Amazon kindle store.

It is my journal from early in my loss, but it shares lots of the ways I helped myself feel better.

I also really liked http://www.amazon.co.uk/Life-Touches-Mothers-Stillbirth-Healing/dp/0939165503

Ben Wakeling is publishing a book through sands in the new year about subsequent pregnancy.

Yes that's exactly the sort of thing, thanks for all the suggestions and well done writing a book although obviously it's a book you never wanted to have to write x

I'm reading an amazing book called ' empty cradle broken heart' i have read several bereavement books after I lost my son and this by far is the best. Hope it helps x
