Miscarriage is a frequent, yet often misunderstood experience for many women. Emotions following a miscarriage often include: grief, sorrow, anger, despair, guilt, depression and feelings of emptiness. Whether your pregnancy was planned or a surprise, the loss of your precious baby can send your emotions on a roller coaster ride. You want answers to your many questions. Validation of your feelings. Acknowledgement of the loss of your very real baby.

Shattered Dreams offered a forum to share your story, your poetry. Contact with other parents of similar experience. Remembrance for your never-to-be-known baby. And announcement of your successful subsequent pregnancy.

Shattered Dreams offered emotional support for parents from those who have walked the same road. Sharing in this sensitively written newsletter will help you heal and grow from the heart-break of your miscarriage.

Although Shattered Dreams is unfortunately no longer in print, please take a moment to glance over the contents of our past issues listed below. Printed back issues are still available for just $4.00 per issue, or all 15 issues for $45.00.

I hope that this information is of help to you, and that your future will start to look a little brighter soon. From someone who has been there,

Catherine McDiarmid,
grieving 11 precious babies - while celebrating three special boys.
