Publisher's Synopsis

Winner of the British Medical Association Popular Medicine Book Award

'Illuminating and consoling' JULIA SAMUEL, author of GRIEF WORKS


Though approximately one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, it remains a rarely talked about, under-researched, and largely misunderstood area of women's health. This award-winning and profoundly necessary book - the first comprehensive portrait of the psychological, emotional, medical, and cultural aspects of miscarriage - aims to help break that silence.

In this groundbreaking book, psychotherapist Julia Bueno draws on historical and psychological research alongside her personal story and those of people she's helped. Straightforward and supportive, she shines a light on the different ways that miscarriages can happen and how we might allow for our grief, offer comfort and break the silence.

'It's the sort of book that women have long been searching for, and it feels like real progress. I'm so thankful she wrote it' MEAGHAN O'CONNELL, author of And Now We Have Everything

'Profound insight, rare courage' ZOE WILLIAMS

'Opening the door to more candid conversations' OBSERVER

'Intuitive and compassionate' SATHNAM SANGHERA
