This book is a culturally sensitive translation of the book Empty Arms.
A classic, this book was one of the first to offer support to families after their baby's death and to guide caregivers in their support of these families. Over 250,000 in print, this book touches the hearts of families at the time of their loss and over time as they heal. No matter how or at what age or gestational age a baby dies, their parents are invited to be supported by Sherokee and her husband David, who themselves have been there. With compassion, guidance and practical suggestions are offered for the decision-making at the time (including why and how one might see, hold, and memorialize one's baby) and over time (such as how to handle such times as anniversaries, holidays, the birth of other babies in the parents close circle.) An excellent bibliography and resource section is included.
