“Loving Your Baby: A Gentle And Practical Guide To Parenting Through Miscarriage, Stillbirth And Infant Death” by Shari Morash

Josiah's OrnamentDid you know that October was perinatal bereavement month? I didn’t know that until recently. It was a series of unfortunate events that led me to this knowledge. This connected me to a recent book entitled “Loving Your Baby: A Gentle And Practical Guide To Parenting Through Miscarriage, Stillbirth And Infant Death” written by Shari Morash, a fellow Guelphite.

From the moment I picked up this book, I could feel the tears and sorrow of a bereaved family. Living in a culture that does not discuss death, grief, and loss, Shari opens the door to acknowledgement. Sometimes, the simple knowing that you are not alone is enough to keep your sanity during a time of sadness.

Loving Your BabyIn addition to sharing her own story, this short book is filled with practical information and resources to support you and your family.  Whether you are a bereaved parent, grandparent, sibling, or friend, this book can be part of your healing journey. As we approach the winter solstice and this time of darkness, reflect on your own losses and what you need to heal.
