Pregnancy should be a time of joyous anticipation, but those forty weeks can feel very different if you are one of the many women who has previously lost a baby. In Pregnancy After Loss, Zoe Clark-Coates has created a compassionate and essential guide to lead you, day by day, through your pregnancy.
Addressing such issues as facing fear, coping with scans and pregnancy milestones, building relationships with your medical team and processing your ongoing grief whilst pregnant, this is the comforting companion every pregnant woman needs by her side.
As someone who has experienced pregnancy following baby loss, Zoe fully understands all of the concerns you may be experiencing - she has been there, and now she's here for you.
Following the devastating loss of five babies, Zoe decided to use her counselling qualifications and twenty years of experience in the business and charity sectors to improve support for anyone who suffers baby loss. She founded the Mariposa Trust with her husband, which in just five years has become one of the leading support charities in the UK, reaching over 50,000 people each week across the world. The Secretary State for Health appointed Zoe to co-chair a new national review of loss across the NHS and the UK. She conducts 3-5 TV and radio appearances each week and has become a regular guest and commentator on BBC Breakfast and ITV.
