Topics include surgical procedures, financial assistance, emotional impact, and forming support groups.

The book offers comprehensive coverage across five key areas: Reflection on the previous pregnancy, miscarriage or stillbirth, Decisions to be made when considering another pregnancy, Ways to plan for and to have a healthier experience, The role of healthcare professionals and facilities, and Self-help and complementary techniques for good mental health in the perinatal period.

Nichts reinkritzeln. Keine Knicke machen. Nichts draufkleckern. Und bloss nicht im Regen liegen lassen... Wir haben es alle von klein auf gelernt: Bücher muss man gut behandeln. Dass es aber unheimlich Spass macht, genau das nicht zu tun, zeigt dieses ideensprühende Buch: Bohre mit einem Bleistift Löcher in diese Seite. Dokumentiere dein Abendessen. Archiviere hier die Briefmarken all deiner Post. Schreibe mit dem Stift im Mund. Tobe dich auf dieser Seite aus, wenn du richtig sauer bist. Jede Seite dieses Buches wirkt wie ein Befreiungsschlag und setzt ungeahnte kreative Energien frei. Schaffen ist zerstören, sagt Keri Smith.
