AFTER FINLEY: Click HERE
In the UK alone, seventeen babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth every day. But what does it feel like to lose a child you never really met? How do people cope with a loss like that? Shrouded by fear and taboo, the stories of these babies and their parents rarely if ever get heard. Speaking up loud and clear about her own son Finley and the challenging months following his birth, Mel Scott presents a warts-and-all account of life after the loss of a baby. Frank, insightful and moving, After Finley is an unexpectedly captivating book that gets right to the heart of the meaning of love.
‘I read After Finley in one sitting – I absolutely loved it. This is a book that will inspire parents of stillborn babies and bring greater understanding of the issues to a wider public’.Nicole Wyborn, midwife and author of A Mother’s Tears: a story of stillbirth and life.
‘An accurate portrait of what parents go through when they lose a baby. Emotionally raw and graphic, After Finley is also funny in all the right places, showing the glimpses of light at the end of a very dark tunnel’. Keiley Tuck, bereavement midwife.
