The contributors examine mothers' reactions to infertility, unwanted pregnancy, `at-risk' pregnancy, stillbirth, birth of a preterm baby and the birth of a baby with a birth defect. The purpose of the book is to develop an understanding of the women's experiences in order to assist caregivers in the provision informed care.
