[Perspectives] Stories of stillbirth

There is an evidence base and anecdotal accounts groaning at the seams with examples of health care that may be medically precise but consistently sidesteps treating miscarriage and stillbirth in terms of grief and trauma. Where care is offered it can be insensitively or clumsily delivered, with partners ignored and little attention given to the psychological needs of women who have lost their child. A book that is blunt, brutal, and bleak could be at risk of replicating these problems. Alice Jolly’s Dead Babies and Seaside Towns manages not to do this.
