Los Angeles, California, May 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – via NewMediaWire – In their new book, Dear baby, our lost angel, love and honor forever, authors Tani and John Leeper are breaking the silence on pregnancy loss to help readers understand the impact of losing a baby. With stories and lessons they learned first-hand and as founders of the Jake’s Journey Foundation, Tani and John teach readers how to navigate grieving in a way that can lead them to rediscover joy – and maybe even discovering a new purpose – living a new normal.
It is a fact that one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage. An alarming statistic, but there is so much silence around the subject. When Chrissy Teigen’s pregnancy loss occurred in 2020, social media posts about the story reached over 11,000 likes and over 500,000 comments. Even with every news outlet and social media channel spreading the story, pregnancy loss happens to so many women and their losses are often unspoken or ignored.
Whether through miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, or neonatal loss, the pain of losing a baby is an indescribable heartbreak. The severity of grief doesn’t depend on gestational stage, whether it’s 4 weeks, 40 weeks, or 40 days, losing a baby shakes you up deeply and shouldn’t be rejected or ignored by society.
Author Stephanie Paige Cole aptly described the experience when she noted: “I don’t think most people really understand how badly a baby dies. You don’t just lose a baby; you also lose the 1 and 2 and the 10 and 16 that it would have become. You waste Christmas mornings, loose teeth and the first few days of school. You simply lose.
In Dear baby: Our lost angel, love and honor forever, readers quickly learn that every loss deserves to be recognized and recognized. They will also learn to solve the “landmine” problems in their lives by exploring their own motivations and breaking the silences that we perpetuate, consciously or not, every day. dear baby provides comprehensive guidelines on how to discuss difficult topics on a healing journey, including:
-Understand how men and women cry differently
-Formation of healing connections
-Navigate the first 12 months
Dear baby is a book of hope for those who have experienced, or for those seeking to support others, pregnancy loss. You can find this powerful and insightful book on Amazon as well as Barnes and Noble, Flintridge Bookstore, and Vroman’s Bookstore.
