Losing a Parent by Fiona Marshall
I found this book to be written in an easy to read style with so many insights that resonate with people who are experiencing not only this type of loss but also many other types of loss.
I Wasn’t Ready to Say Goodbye by Brook Noel & Pamela D. Blair
The focus of this book is dealing with sudden death. It is written and organised in such a way that it could be either read cover to cover or used as a reference point and dipped into using one of the many different headed chapters and paragraphs.
A Silent Sorrow by Ingrid Kohn, MSW & Perry-Lynn Moffitt, with Isabelle A Wilkins MD
This book focuses purely on pregnancy loss. It covers the emotional issues and also includes advice on a more practical level. The book also touches on how pregnancy loss is often not spoken about as much as other types of loss.
“Grief is not a condition which you ‘get over’ like an illness, but a life experience; it demands a long-term response and cannot be hurried through or swept away.”
