  • Still A Mother


    More than 1 million women suffer fetal loss each year, yet most mothers will struggle to find words to share their grief or describe their experience. Miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant death can be incredibly isolating, with women feeling silenced by shame or guilt, by confusion and loss of control. In Still a Mother, chaplains Joy Freeman and Tabatha Johnson share their own experiences and collect the stories of others who have sustained such loss, ending the silence and helping to equip pastors, congregations, family, and friends in ministering more compassionately to mothers who grieve.
