In Search of Fertility – Stillbirth

There are infertile couples who have that elated moment when they are told that there is a pregnancy. They then proceed all the way to delivery only to have a stillbirth. That result is devastating. Today we will speak with Elizabeth Heineman who underwent infertility treatment and then had a stillbirth. She will share important information about how a stillbirth can occur and how she mourned the loss. Elizabeth wrote about her experiences in the book Ghost Belly: A Memoir published by Feminist Press. You can learn more about the book Ghost Belly at the following website: www.ghostbelly.com
