Healing Your Grieving Heart After Stillbirth:

100 Practical Ideas for Parents and Families

The Mourner’s Book of Faith, the third title in the “Mourner’s Book Of…” series, is a hardcover gift book with a month’s worth of one-a-day thoughts on finding and nurturing faith in times of grief. As Dr. Wolfelt explains, the essential need to mourn and question the meaning of life and death is not inconsistent with faith but instead is a reflection of an ongoing and ever-deepening relationship with God. The book explores all types of losses and viewpoints, containing favorite quotations on faith from a variety of religious and spiritual traditions.

In Healing Your Grieving Heart After Stillbirth, Dr. Wolfelt and psychologist coauthor Dr. Raelynn Maloney explore the common feelings of shock, anger, guilt, and sadness that accompany a stillborn baby, offering suggestions for expressing feelings, remembering the child, and healing as a family. This new addition to Dr. Wolfelt’s popular 100 Ideas series is a healing companion to families when they need it most.

     

Author, educator and grief counselor Dr. Alan Wolfelt serves as Director of the Center for Loss and Life Transition in Fort Collins, Colorado. Appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, The Larry King Show, and the NBC Today Show offer further evidence of Dr. Wolfelt’s leadership in grief education.
