Brink of Being
by Julia Bueno
AN AWARD-WINNING EXPLORATION OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL, EMOTIONAL, MEDICAL, AND CULTURAL ASPECTS OF MISCARRIAGE AND PREGNANCY LOSS
'Illuminating and consoling' JULIA SAMUEL, author of GRIEF WORKS
Though approximately one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, it remains a rarely talked about, under-researched, and largely misunderstood area of women's health. This profoundly necessary book - the first comprehensive portrait of the psychological, emotional, medical, and cultural aspects of miscarriage - aims to help break that silence.
In this groundbreaking book, psychotherapist Julia Bueno draws on historical and psychological research alongside her personal story and those of people she's helped. Straightforward and supportive, she shines a light on the different ways that miscarriages can happen and how we might allow for our grief, offer comfort and break the silence.
