Close to one in four American women experience the silent grief of pregnancy loss. Loved Baby offers much-needed support to women in the middle of psychological and physiological grief as a result of losing an unborn child.
In Loved Baby, author Sarah Philpott gently walks alongside women as they experience the misguided shame, isolation, and crushing despair that accompany the turmoil of loss. With brave vulnerability Sarah shares her own and others stories of loss, offering Christ-filled hope and support to women navigating grief.
This fresh and compassionate devotional offers:
· Real talk about loss
· Christ-filled comfort
· Tips to manage social media, reconnect with your partner, and nourish your soul
· Knowledge that your child is in heaven
· Strategies to walk through grief
· Ways to memorialize your loss
Whether your loss is recent or not, Loved Baby can be your companion as you move from the darkness of grief toward the light of hope.
Sarah Philpott, PhD, lives on a cattle farm in Tennessee. She is the mother of three young children and wife to one hard workin farmer (who has been her sweetheart since high school). Sarah is a former elementary teacher and went on to earn her PhD at the University of Tennessee. She is an award-winning writer who has contributed to numerous academic books such as Contemporary Social Studies: An Essential Reader and has been published in scholarly journals such as Social Studies and the Young Learner. Sarah also contributes to places such as the Huffington Post, Her View from Home, BonBon Break, Bethany Christian Services, and Pregnant Chicken.
These days, Sarah happily chooses to be a stay-at-home mom and spends her days cleaning peanut butter and jelly off the counter, dreaming of traveling the world, hosting "get-togethers" for her friends and family, and chasing her kids around the farm. She doesnt believe in sharing desserts. Life is too short to share chocolate! Sarah is a lover of big earrings, black coffee, front-porch rocking chairs, star-gazing, river days, Doris Day, and all things Hemingway. Cherishing the life God has provided is her mantra.
Sarah is also the founder of the Loved Baby pregnancy loss support group and the #HonorAllMoms Mothers Day movement. Visit with Sarah at allamericanmom.net where she writes about life on the farm and cherishing life in joy and sorrow.

Our culture programs us to feel as though motherhood should be all sunshine and rosesbreakfasts in bed made by beaming, freshly-bathed children. We learn to think that a woman cannot fulfill her God-given destiny unless she nurtures the lives God enabled her to bear. And yet, when one of those lives is lost, or when life never begins, the world suddenly goes quiet, leaving these women alone and suffering. Heres the key, though: When we offer our hurts to God, He will bring healing. He is the salve that soothes even the deepest wounds. Through Sarahs words in Loved Baby, you will realize that youre not called to forget but to welcome God into your pain. You can remember and honor and grieve and be made whole again. With God, even this is possible. Step into these pages like youre walking into Gods comforting embrace, because thats exactly what this book has to offer.

"Your numbers have dropped," the nurse said. "Let us know if the bleeding starts filling a pad every hour. Im sorry." And with that, I learned I was about to have my first miscarriage and second pregnancy loss. A few days later, without bleeding or cramping in sight, I took my husband to Barnes & Noble. I wanted to find somethinganythingI could read that would tell me what to expect. The books I found (which werent much) focused on family planning, or, get this, how not to have a miscarriage. Seriously? Women who miscarry needed help, and I found nothing that offered it. In the meantime, our story kept going through three more losses and our time with Z and finally our rainbow pregnancy with Ellie. Thank goodness some of our friends have been in the trenches and are ready to share their hearts and encouragement to women who need a worthwhile resource. Sarah Philpott is one of my friends in the baby loss community. Her book Loved Baby is a devotional and journal for baby loss moms. You will want to get this book in your hands!

"They instinctively knew to show me quiet love" is only one example of the exquisite healing words Sarah Philpott uses to help those of us grieving after a pregnancy loss. Her remarkable insights, coupled with her enormous compassion, give us the guidance and strength we need to walk through this devastating journey and know we are not alone. If you have ever loved someone who has suffered through a pregnancy loss, Loved Baby may well be the answer to a prayer. I am grateful for Sarahs ability to impart her wisdom and spirituality, hope and grace for all of those who will benefit the most. And bless the beautiful babies in heaven who will live on in our souls forever.

The death of a baby is one of the worst and most traumatic experiences of a parents life. The grief that follows is all-consuming and often isolating. Sarah Philpott has created a way for parents to process their own grief journey while being reassured they are not alone. Loved Baby is a beautiful resource for bereaved parents in their darkest days.

I wish Id had this book to read days after my loss instead of using "Dr. Google" and the like for information on miscarriage.

Loved Baby is the book I wish I had after my first loss. Sarah Philpott is like a loving sister who has been there, guiding us through. I love the easy-to-apply soul work sections. I cried through most of the book. I would say that even after months and months of grief counseling, reading almost every book out there about pregnancy loss and how to cope, and being in a support group, Loved Baby is what brought me the rest of the way. I cant even find the best words to tell you how extremely helpful this is going to be for so many women.

Loved Baby deals with a topic so dear to my heart because of my experience with three years of infertility and the loss I experienced with my first two babies. I would have given anything to have someone walk me through that season with spiritual insight as well as personal experience. This is why I am thrilled about my friend Sarah Philpotts new book. Whether you are still grieving or not, you can trust her with your heart.
