Book will help af­ter baby loss

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

BABY loss ex­pert Dr Pe­tra Boynton, au­thor of the book Cop­ing With Preg­nancy Loss, urges any­one who has suf­fered a mis­car­riage to ask for help.

Dr Pe­tra, who her­self has suf­fered three mis­car­riages, said: “There are so many char­i­ties out there that are re­ally good when it comes to of­fer­ing sup­port and help.

“The prob­lem we have is no­body tells you where to look for that help.

“This week we have had 60 char­i­ties in­volved in Baby Loss Aware­ness Week – it’s just know­ing where to look.

“That’s why I de­cided to write my book, I wanted to help oth­ers know where to find the help and sup­port on of­fer.”

Dr Pe­tra added that mis­car­riage is “still such a taboo sub­ject and one that peo­ple find dif­fi­cult to talk about”.
