Editorial Reviews

This title, the sixth in the "Books for Women by Women" series, provides concise, up-to-date information on miscarriage. Together, obstetrician/gynecologist Friedman and Daria, a medical writer who has had a miscarriage, discuss the causes, dispel common myths, and outline the process of grieving (which is not readily recognized in today's society). Their easy-to-read book introduces facts, terminology, and personal stories without overwhelming the reader. Resources provide addresses for recognized organizations, and a glossary is included. Although the new field of reproductive immunology is discussed, an introduction to immunological disorders beyond fetal blocking antibodies would have been invaluable. Still, this excellent and affordable guide is highly recommended for consumer medical collections; for a more personal slant, try Marie Allen and Shelly Marks's Miscarriage: Women Sharing from the Heart (LJ 2/15/93).
