here's a question for you.
i've been reading a couple of books about birth. one is Stand and Deliver!: And other Brilliant Ways to Give Birth
> and one is Birth Skills: Proven pain-management techniques for your labour and birth
. and they're very interesting, yadda yadda yadda, and make me realise that i really do need to prepare for birth starting earlier rather than later.
the books don't mention stillbirth. not at all. not even in passing. not even contact details for SANDS. and... i don't know. i can even (kind of) understand pregnancy books not discussing it, at least not properly. because they are more general. but it seems extremely remiss, knowing that 17 babies die before or shortly after birth every day in the UK, to leave that fact out of a book about the process of giving birth. not even to give the contact details for SANDS.
what do you think?
