Unimaginable: Life After Baby Loss

It's here! My book is now available on Amazon in paperback or ebook format. It is ONLY here because of the connections and friendships and comments and encouragement I got from folks reading this blog. What an enormous gift it has been. I don't know how I would have survived without it. 


You can order the book here. (!!!!!!!!)

I dedicated the book to Eliza, but blog readers are #1 in my list of acknowledgments. The internet sure can be an ugly place, but this little corner of it has been so, so good to me. Thank you! I hope you'll read the book and let me know what you think.

  4. Dear Brooke, I'm a long time reader although I may not have commented. I never wanted to overstep as I was living a different grief experience than you - in 2008 when my baby was 10 months old my husband was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor (on a years out timeline, so weird). As I reeled and learned how to live facing his death in the future while raising our family, I somehow stumbled on your blog and a few other babyloss blogs. I felt less alone reading about your grief and your rebuilding of a good life. My husband died in 2019 and now I'm in that post-death phase, trying to integrate and carve out a new life without my partner. I draw hope from reading personal stories of grief integration and I eagerly bought your book. Thank you so much for putting it out there. Your perspective is so valuable. I'm sure it helps and will continue to help others who are in a similar situation, but please know it also helps others who are grief-adjacent as an untimely, personal world-rocking loss is beyond difficult. I appreciated your honesty in admitting how you viewed the world before Eliza's death. I, too, felt that my healthy family was a natural step in the progression of things I "did right" in life and struggled (still do sometimes) with how it seems to be effortless for "everyone" else but I'm a single mom now. In my journey I have now met other widowed parents and know that I am far from unique, and I have also experienced growth similar to what you described. Yes there are gifts, and I agree that they are not silver linings. I admire you so much for your introspection and perseverance, and I am moved by your unending love for Eliza shared with the world. I am thankful for your gift of words and generosity in sharing them. -Betsy

  5. Sigh, your kindle book isn’t available in Europe. Is there any way you can make it available on Amazon Uk, or something? Or is that too complicated?

  7. I read it all in one sitting. The balance between your ( families) loss is so well balanced with the , progress sounds wrong, but moving on to parent three daughters , staying together etc is very poignant. Thank you for sharing your most raw thoughts and proffering hope to others who have experienced or are indeed still trying to navigate trauma.
