Hi everyone,
So being the control freak that I am, these miscarriages drive me nuts even more because I can't control them. But I decided that what I can control is what I do about it and how I respond. So I decided to educate myself as much as possible about the topic through reading and research. What I discovered is there are very few books on this topic (like maybe a total of 7 in the entire library) and a lot of them deal with the grieving process more than anything else or are way out of date and the information is not very good. I did, however, find two books that I have found very helpful and wanted to share the titles with you all incase anyone else was interested...

Miscarriage, Medicine & Miracles: Everything You Need to Know About Miscarriage. By Bruce Young MD and Amy Zavatto
This one has a lot of good medical information written in language that is easy to understand. It has helped me to come up with more specific questions to ask my doctor now that I have had recurrent miscarriages. (Warning: dont read this one if you have hypochondriac tendancies )

Avoiding Miscarriage: Everything You Need To Know To Feel Confident In Pregnancy. By Susan Rousselot
I haven't gotten very far in this one yet but so far it seems like a good one.

There is also one other one that I found in my library's catalog but someone checked it out and never returned it and they do not have another copy so I'm still trying to track this one down...but I'll let you know what I find if anyone is interested.
