Books on Pregnancy and Infant Loss

These books have made a tremendous impact on my life after the days, weeks, and years following the loss of our first pregnancy. I get teary thinking about how there didn’t used to be this many accessible resources in this baby loss community, and I am just blown away by the beautiful authors that have poured out their hearts on these pages to make each of us feel less alone in our journey.

In our miscarriage care packages, we include a little resource guide with a list of songs and book recommendations. These are some of my all-time-favorites to come back to and read often. There’s something so encouraging to read someone’s story and see evidence of God unfolding beauty out of ashes.
