Empty Arms: Coping With Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Infant Death Paperback
January 5, 2013
by Sherokee Ilse
Surviving the First Hours and Beyond
Revised and updated! This classic book is one of the first given to newly bereaved parents to offer guidance in decision making after their baby's death and to assist caregivers as they support families. Empty Arms encourages families to meet their babies and say hello before rushing to say goodbye. With compassion that comes from Sherokee and David's experience of having lived through the death of their son Brennan, the book offers guidance and practical suggestions for the decision making at the time (including why and how one might see, hold, and memorialize one's baby) and over time
(such as how to handle such times as anniversaries, holidays and the birth of other babies in the parents' close circle.)
Family and friends can learn how to understand the loss and be supportive of the bereaved families.
It offers ongoing support about subjects such as returning to work or to life, couple grieving, surviving children, feeling guilty, having another child or not, and feeling lonely.
With over 300,000 in print, this book touches the hearts of families at the time of their loss and over time as they heal.
An excellent bibliography and resource section are included.
