WELCOME

Dear Parent,

As you are reading this survey, I must assume you too have lost your child or baby.
I am deeply sorry for your loss or losses.

Going through our grieving process has a deep personal impact for both mother and father, as well as an immense impact on the parent's relationship.

Besides what we know from studies and statistics (see below), I would like to hear about your personal experience, your challenges and how you have or haven't mastered them, your wisdom as you have gone through the aftermath of grief yourself.

THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP:
The intent of this book is to be of support to other parents having to deal with life after losing their child or baby with the focus on the 'post grief couple's relationship'.

Would you help me out by giving me your honest answers about what would have helped you and what has not? Please feel free to add anything I might have missed.

If you would like to keep updated on the book's progress and publication date, please drop your email in the box at the end of the survey.

Thank you for your precious time.
All Love, Nathalie

STUDIES AND STATISTICS:
Studies and statistics about grieving parents show that the divorce rate is higher after the loss of a child (source: http://marriage.about.com/cs/parenting/a/unthinkgrief.htm)
"Experts say that parents typically never "get over" the loss of a child, but rather learn to adjust and to integrate the loss into their lives. Still, the death of a child remains one of the most stressful life events imaginable. One-fourth to one-third of parents who lose a child report that their marriage suffers strains that sometimes prove irreparable."
