Meeting the Needs of Parents Pregnant and Parenting After Perinatal Loss
By

Rating
Despite research which highlights parents' increased anxiety and risk of attachment issues with the pregnancy that follows a perinatal loss, there is often little understanding that bereaved families may need different care in their subsequent pregnancies. This book explores the lived experience of pregnancy and parenting after a perinatal loss. Meeting the Needs of Parents Pregnant and Parenting After Perinatal Loss develops a helpful framework, which integrates continuing bonds and attachment theories, to support prenatal parenting at each stage of pregnancy. Giving insight into how a parent's world view of a pregnancy may have changed following a loss, readers are provided with tools to assist parents on their journey. The book discusses each stage of a pregnancy, as well as labor and the postpartum period, before examining subjects such as multi-fetal pregnancies, reluctant terminations, use of support groups, and the experiences of fathers and other children in the family. The chapters include up-to-date research findings, vignettes from parents reflecting on their own experiences and recommendations for practice. Written for researchers, students and professionals from a range of health, social welfare and early years education backgrounds, this text outlines what we know about supporting bereaved families encountering the challenges of a subsequent pregnancy.

Reviews

For family life educators working in their various roles that may include work with families experiencing pregnancy after prenatal loss, this is a valuable resource. - Betty L. Cooke, National Council on Family Relations, Summer 2017 29:3 Perhaps one of the great strengths of this book is its attention to the children born subsequent to a loss, beginning with the suggestion that bereaved parents are different (not less than, just different) than non-bereaved parents. O'Leary and Warland have made a major contribution to prenatal and perinatal psychology, as well as to obstetric and pediatric practice and to public understanding. - Michael Trout, Journal of the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health
