The Miscarriage Handbook, “It’s Not Just a Heavy Period,” helps women understand what they may experience when they learn their baby has died or are experiencing a miscarriage. Women are often told that miscarriages are “just a heavy period,” yet most women describe a painful and excruciating experience. “It’s Not Just a Heavy Period,” is the ultimate resource for caregivers. The book contains information on what to expect, options for delivering the baby, helps the family understand and choose a final resting place for the physical form of their baby’s body, warning signs during miscarriage, after care for the woman, grief and mourning, and memorializing their baby.
At the same time, the book also gives readers ideas for how to tell their friends and family, how others may react including their partner and living children, and a guide for friends and family on how to help and what to say/not say. Another aspect of the book is that it contains, tear outs to help the grieving family share their needs with others. The book encompasses all aspects of miscarriage and the grief women may experience.
