Produktbeschreibung
This book is the Winner of the OSCLG Outstanding Book Award

The loss of a desired pregnancy or the inability to experience pregnancy are intensely personal phenomena; these losses are also, in our culture at least, extremely private. Communicating Pregnancy Loss is a collection of first-person narratives about the experience of pregnancy loss. Although there is no shortage of books that help prospective parents cope with an unintended pregnancy loss or 'survive' infertility, most of these books are authored by physicians or therapists and address pregnancy loss through the language of guidance. This book is different. It is the first of its kind because the contributors (primarily communication scholars but also healthcare personnel and other scholars from the social sciences) tell their story of loss in their own words, offering a diverse collection of narratives that span experience and identity. The authors employ various feminist theories, narrative theories, and performance theories as well as other well-known communication theories and concepts. The book's narrative approach to writing about and thereby understanding pregnancy loss offers readers a method for changing the way pregnancy loss is understood personally, culturally, and politically.

Rezensionen
"Deeply moving and evocative, Communicating Pregnancy Loss strikes a perfect chord that will resonate throughout the field of health communication. This courageous collection is unique in its pairing of compelling narratives of loss with critical analyses that contextualize authors' experiences within cutting-edge theory and concepts. Silverman and Baglia's volume is the perfect text for enriching health communication courses, a must-have for researchers in women's health and narrative medicine, and a deep comfort for women and their partners living with pregnancy loss. Bravo to the authors and editors for breaking the silences that surround miscarriage and infertility." (Laura L. Ellingson, Santa Clara University, former Senior Editor for Qualitative, Interpretive, and Rhetorical Methods at Health Communication and author of Communicating in the Clinic: Negotiating Frontstage and Backstage Teamwork) "The most exciting development in scholarship on pregnancy loss in years. Moving personal accounts paired with savvy theoretical insights. A must-read for health care providers who may encounter those undergoing pregnancy loss." (Linda Layne, University of Rochester, National Science Foundation, and author of Motherhood Lost: A Feminist Account of Pregnancy Loss in America) "Bearing witness. Imagining otherwise. Moving audiences and mobilizing resources. The potential of storytelling to transform selves and society is revealed in this poignant collection of stories artfully compiled by Silverman and Baglia. The storytellers who populate this volume write with clarity and raw honesty, inviting readers to consider the social and political dimensions of pregnancy loss. Healthcare practitioners and the general public alike will find Communicating Pregnancy Loss an invaluable resource for enacting social support and shifting public dialogue surrounding pregnancy loss specifically and vulnerability writ large." (Lynn Harter, Ohio University; author of Imagining New Normals: A Narrative Framework for Health Communication)…mehr
