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.
