about this item
More than 1 million women suffer fetal loss each year, yet most of those women will struggle to find words to share their grief or describe their experience. As some of the least talked about types of loss, miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant death can be incredibly isolating. The women who experience it become members of a secret society, silenced by shame or guilt, by confusion and loss of control. In Still a Mother, chaplains Joy Freeman and Tabatha Johnson share their own experiences and collect the stories of nearly a dozen other women who have sustained such loss, not only ending the silence but also helping to equip pastors, congregations, family, and friends in ministering more compassionately and attentively to other mothers who grieve. Features practical insights for pastoral care in each chapter.
