For parents making difficult decisions about babies they love.
By Molly A. Minnick, M.S.W., Kathleen J. Delp, A.C.S.W., and Mary C. Ciotti, M.D.
This book is must for all professionals working in the expanding field of prenatal diagnosis and reproductive genetics and for the parents in their care. It is written by parents who have faced the news of a fetal anomaly with grief and courage. Read their words and learn of their journey through grief and healing. A Time To Decide, A Time To Heal is about the experience of parents making difficult decisions about babies they love, about taking control in a seemingly out of control situation, about hope for healing and about the experience of a subsequent pregnancy. It’s about how couples heal – together and apart, about continuing a pregnancy with known fetal anomalies, about selective fetal reduction, and the experience of D&E. It also includes touching poems, letters and memorials written by parents.
