Publisher's summary

"I'm not picking up a heartbeat." These are the most dreaded words an expectant mother can hear. As joy and anticipation dissolve into confusion and grief, painful questions refuse to go away: Why me? Did I do something wrong? How will this affect my ability to have a family? What do I say to my children without scaring them?  

With the warmth and compassion of a Licensed Professional Counselor and writing as a mother who has suffered the loss of a baby and a 16-year-old son, Pam Vredevelt offers sound answers and advice. As an expert in love and loss, Pam gives reassuring comfort to any woman fighting to maintain stability and faith in the midst of devastating heartbreak. Empty Arms: Hope and Support for Those Who Have Suffered a Miscarriage, Stillbirth, or Tubal Pregnancy is the essential guidebook for anyone suffering the agony of losing a baby.

Excellent and healing.

This book was tremendously helpful in dealing with my recent miscarriage. I found the chapter on what we can learn from the Bible to be particularly healing. With perfect mixture of biblical references, science, and personal experiences woven throughout, this book is sure to bring a glimmer of hope to those grieving the loss of a baby. I listened to the whole book in one day and might even listen again.

Only for happy evangelical Christians.

I struggled with the narrator's voice, with scripture being used out of context, with the absolutely disgusting words the author found comfort in, such as "Nature wanted you to have a perfectly formed baby.". just no. made me so angry

Beautiful story

Beautiful story, but a lot about religion and faith. I wish there had been a stronger warning about that. It may be helpful for some who are not particularly religious or, for me, confused with my faith as a result of this situation.

Very helpful and healing

This was a wonderful book that helped me through this hard time. So thankful I found it and that it was available to listen to and I mindlessly did things around the house. I loved the scripture references and biblical encouragement. Thank you for writing such an encouraging book amidst your own personal anguish. Your story is heartbreaking but it’s encouraging that if you can get through this then so can I with the Lords help!
