In Your Guide to Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss, Kate White, M.D., OB/GYN, miscarriage survivor, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Boston University School of Medicine and Vice Chair of Academics in the OB/GYN department at Boston Medical Center, combines the latest medical research with the information you need—the facts and the forecasts, the hand-holding and the hope—when you experience a pregnancy loss. Miscarriage affects almost 1 million women in the United States every year. Yet each person experiencing a pregnancy loss often feels alone and full of questions about the process and the aftermath. And today’s health care system is simply not designed to shepherd you and your family through the loss with the information and understanding you need. Dr. Kate provides an experienced hand to help guide you through this painful experience. Dr. Kate’s book provides women and their families with the two things sorely missing from their experience: detailed answers to their questions about miscarriage, and support and guidance through the healing process. Your Guide to Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss takes readers through the journey of miscarriage diagnosis and treatment. It addresses all types of pregnancy loss—like ectopic and molar pregnancies, as well as ones that are often overlooked by the media and other books. Filled with accessible information, frequently asked questions and answers, and methods for coping with grief, the book empowers women undergoing pregnancy loss to take control over their experience. Written from the perspective of a medical professional who has cared for women having miscarriages for more than 20 years and a woman who has experienced two miscarriages herself, Dr. Kate’s Your Guide to Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss is an earnest conversation between doctor and reader that provides compassion and guidance, as well as hope for a woman’s future pregnancy efforts. “The Miscarriage Guide lays out the paths of all kinds of miscarriages, helping women understand what’s happening and how they can move forward toward healing.” -- Dr. Beri Ridgeway, Chief of Staff, Former Chair, Department of OB/GYN and the Women’s Health Institute, Cleveland Clinic “A delicate and expert mix of medical knowledge, emotional intelligence, and individual clinical guidance. This book provides that in a way that is wise, comprehensive, and sympathetic.” -- Dr. Jeffrey Ecker, Chief, Department of OB/GYN Massachusetts General Hospital Professor, Harvard Medical School “Finally, a book about miscarriages written in clear, simple language, filled with understanding and human kindness.” - Dr. Eve Espey, Professor and Chair, Department of OB/GYN, University of New Mexico “The emotional turmoil of miscarriage makes it impossible for the current healthcare system to provide the necessary support so desperately needed. By empowering women to control their experience, Dr. Kate creates a space for understanding, healing, and most importantly hope.” --Dr. Amy Murtha, Professor and Chair, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences, University of California San Francisco “This book answers all of the questions my own patients ask me in the office, as well as the ones they are afraid to ask. A must-have resource for anyone who has been touched by miscarriage.” -- Dr. Angela Dempsey, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Associate Dean for Curriculum, Clinical Sciences, Department of OB/GYN, Medical University of South Carolina “If you’ve ever experienced a pregnancy loss or know someone who has, this book is for you. If you’ve ever faced a difficult decision after receiving unexpected results on fetal testing, this book is also for you. Dr. White speaks from the heart based on her own experience and that of the many people whom she has supported through a difficult time. Her book is easy to read yet chock full of helpful information, including explanations of medical terminology and procedures. I’ve practiced obstetrics and gynecology for almost 30 years and found this to be incredibly thorough and well-organized with content that is very approachable.” -- Dr. Heather Sankey, Professor and Chair, Department of OB/GYN, University of Massachusetts Medical School-Baystate “In a busy obstetrician’s office, patients with a miscarriage usually can’t get the information and support they need. This book will allow women to get the information and understanding they need when they need it.” -- Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Editor, Contraception, Sarah Billinghurst Solomon Professor of Reproductive Health in the Department of OB/GYN, Professor of Population and Family Health and Epidemiology, Columbia University Irving Medical Center “Accessible, compassionate help at last. Dr. White answers every question every bereaved mother ever had. Dr. White gives mothers who've suffered a loss the missing pieces they desperately need. She frees us from myths, presents medical facts, and helps us move forward with a peaceful heart.” -- Lorraine Ash, Author, Life Touches Life: A Mother's Story of Stillbirth and Healing “What a wonderful relief to read Dr. White’s book and finally find a down to earth, evidence-based, and warm guide for women and their families. This book ticks all the boxes.” -- Dr. Stephanie Azri, Author, The Prenatal Bombshell: Help and Hope When Continuing or Ending a Precious Pregnancy After an Abnormal Diagnosis “Beautifully blending medical knowledge, empathy, and personal experience, Your Guide to Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss helps readers understand and negotiate the often overwhelming physical and emotional aspects of pregnancy loss.”--Rachel Faldet, Author, Our Stories of Miscarriage: Healing With Words
