Holding on & Letting Go: Facing an Unexpected Diagnosis in Pregnancy (Book)



This is a book about love. It contains stories from parents who have faced an unexpected diagnosis in pregnancy and have made a decision. The decision may have been to ‘Hold On’ and continue the pregnancy; it may have been to ‘Let Go’ and induce or terminate the pregnancy. It contains contributions from health and caring professionals about making such a decision. It has been compiled with the express goal of offering parents supplementary information from health professionals and, most importantly, the experiences of others who have found themselves in similar circumstances. It is hoped that the experiences of others may provide information, answer some questions and ultimately assure parents that they are not totally alone in facing their heart-breaking situation of making a decision about their baby. Their baby who is loved.
