   schema:description "In the majority of cases, childbirth is a joyous experience shared by the midwife. Tragically, however, there are occasions when events result in the loss of the pregnancy, and the midwife's role of providing holistic care and support can be extremely challenged. In each situation of loss - be it through spontaneous abortion, therapeutic termination or stillbirth - the midwife is a key member of the health care team. In the midst of an emotional crisis, she or he needs not only to provide as much individualised support and comfort as possible but also to manage effectively the often highly confusing practicalities relating to issues such as registration, post-mortem examination requirements and funeral arrangements. This highly accessible, multi-culturally sensitive book guides the reader quickly but comprehensively through the complex array of practical management and counselling issues relating to loss in pregnancy. With excellent references and suggestions for further reading, plus an Appendix of Useful Addresses, this book will prove invaluable to all midwives and students, bereavement counsellors, nurses and medical staff concerned with this traumatic aspect of women's health."@en ;
