Norton Pub
A groundbreaking psychological study of the enduring impact of pregnancy loss and abortion. This informative book is a must--not simply for women who have at one time experienced pregnancy loss, but also for their husbands and others who care about them. Kim Kluger-Bell's extensive field work as a therapist specializing in the psychodynamics of pregnancy loss and abortion strips away the shrouds of silence surrounding these issues, giving new voice to these "unspeakable losses," in a culture that has rendered its discussion taboo. Filled with in-depth stories of those who have experienced losses, and with solid, practical advice, Unspeakable Losses charts new territory by emphasizing the lifelong impact of pregnancy loss, by treating abortion--both elective and genetic--as a legitimate form of pregnancy loss, and by discussing the formidable obstacles men face in articulating and comprehending their own experience with reproductive crisis. Unspeakable Losses is an indispensable contribution to the growing dialogue on women and pregnancy loss.
