Publisher Description

Tens of thousands of women and families every year lose a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. The statistics are sobering--between 10% and 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, 1% in stillbirth, and nearly 23,000 babies die before their first birthday--but statistics alone miss the depth of the hurt. Each loss is personal and devastating.

No woman is prepared to lose a baby, and caregivers are often unaware of how best to help. In Hope Beyond an Empty Cradle therapist Hallie Scott first shares her own story, as a mother whose only child, Abigail, was stillborn, and then leads readers through a healing process that makes space for heartbreak, despair, guilt, questions, and anger. Life is never the same in the wake of the loss, but a new normal is possible.

The book will be a welcome resource for families who have lost a child, as well as for those seeking to care for them in their traumatic grief.

Moving and Insightful

Ms Scott has wisdom that reaches the deepest pain and restores hope when hope has been lost. I have not experienced the loss of a child, but her strategies for remembering one's truth and making choices that resonate with the aggrieved while sending social expectations to the curb are treasures. Her guidance for friends of those who have lost a child is priceless. The pain of child loss has shaped her recommendations, advice,and guidance which spans many forms of loss, failed expectations, and the pain of hopelessness. Her story is a gift.
