My son was recently stillborn. I am putting together a book, about baby loss.

Each chapter is being written by someone who has experienced baby loss through either miscarriage, stillbirth, ending the pregnancy for medical reasons or loosing a baby within the 1st month of life. The chapter can be written either as a story of your experiences, as a diary or as a letter to your baby.

The book will be published and made available on amazon and to other book stores. The profits will go towards baby loss charities.

Im looking for about 5 more people to contribute, and would especially like to hear from dads and people who have lost babies in the 1st month of life.

If this is something you may like to be involved in please pm me.
