I’m not one who reads non-fiction. I’m sure there’s plenty of adventures to be found within them, but I’ve never been one to read about reality – even if some of my stories are based upon it. However, everyone has to start somewhere with any experience, and I was interested in this one when conversing with someone on LinkedIn.
Baby Dreams is a book written by Louise Warneford about her experiences with eighteen unexplained miscarriages, yet still wanting to hold a child that she carried to term. It talks of her own upbringing to start, with the connections she has to her own family and the events that happened around that time.
The main of the book is talking of those experiences, and the feeling she had not only during the trials of those miscarriages, but after she holds her first child. There’s a lot of detail and depth that has gone into exploring those trials as a collective whole, with snippets of conversations and even some of the research that she had looked at giving a greater personal connection to the events told.
The intention of the book is to instruct and share the experience of miscarriage and the hidden anomalies that can cause them. But as stated within, Louise doesn’t have all the answers, and can only share what she went through. To go with that, though, she is also sharing a message to never give up on your dreams. Both of these are clear to see within the words.
The book is clear in what it wants to present, with plenty of other people mentioned in relation to these events. Not only family and friends, but the medical specialists and other people who gave support in such trying times. If you want to understand what an emotional journey the trials of hidden anomalies can bring, this is a great one to read.
