Mending Invisible Wings: a healing journal for mothers following the loss of their baby through late-term miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death. Click here

From the Author, Mary Burgess: I am a perinatal mentor, childbirth educator and birth doula. In Feb, 2006, I attended the birth of a dear friend whose perfect baby, when born, simply never took a breath. Her beautiful labor ended in a tragic birth. Through Samuel's death, and the many long days (and months and years) following his death, a journal was born: Mending Invisible Wings. It is just published, just out there, a gift for mothers who have lost a baby due to late-term miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death. It is a journal, with gently-guided Creative Healing Expressions and Ceremonies of Compassion, art to color, blank pages to create and draw and write and paint, and a collection of bitrth loss writings from mothers, a father, a midwife, and doulas. Authored by myself, co-authored and illustrated by Shiloh Sophia McCloud, with a foreword by Phyllis Klaus, it is a lovely way of exploring and journeying the babyloss path, towards mended wings.
