About the Author:

Linda L. Layne is Hale Professor of Anthropology and Director of Graduate Studies on the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York.

Review:

"This is what happens when the best of anthropological insight is informed by personal experience: Linda Layne's "motherhood Lost is thoughtful and thought-provoking, a contribution to both the social science literature and to the growing literature of pregnancy loss."
-Barbara Katz Rothman, author of "The Book of Life; co-author, Centuries of Solace: "Expressions of Maternal Grief in Popular Literature
"Linda Layne's voice here is lucid and engaging, sophisticated without being jargon-ridden, and exceptionally convincing. Grounded in a magisterial survey of relevant literatures and in a striking sense of the lives of families and individuals in very difficult circumstances - as well as in often painful long-term relationships with a range of complex and consequential institutions - "Motherhood Lost maps new and provocative scholarly territory. It is an example of anthropology at its best, addressing a cluster of significant contemporary issues with empathy, insight, and a very powerful array of interpretive strategies."
-Donald Brenneis, Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Santa Cruz
""Motherhood Lost gets right to the heart of the matter in describing the tragedy of pregnancy loss. From her personal experience, as well as the indepth study of other parents' experiences, Dr. Layne writes with both scholarship and passion, bringing understanding to sorrow. Her voice adds significantly to the field of perinatal loss."
-Janis L. Keyser, Ph.D., Director, UNITE Grief Support; Director, The Center for Grieving Children, Teens and Families, Philadelphia, PA
"Pregnancy loss may not be everybody's cup of tea, but don't miss Layne's concoction: a brimmingpotful of interviews and insights, mixed with a pinch of piquant memoir and a splash of feminist manifesto. The result is a smart, sensible explanation of the cultural narratives that impede our ability to deal humanely with pregnancy loss. Compassionate, sensitive, and pragmatic, "Motherhood Lost offers us a compelling recipe for social change."
-Lynn M. Morgan is co-editor of "Fetal Subjects, Feminist Positions
"Linda Layne has authored an unparalleled and scholarly work, giving light and voice to the silent despair suffered through the ages by countless parents whose children have died before birth. Dr. Layne has embraced through her personal journey and her in-depth study, the very core of the complexity of understanding what mothers feel when they endure a pregnancy loss, how society has ignored these feelings and why we must now, remove our estrangement from these 'unspeakable losses, ' acknowledge them, strive to understand them and above all comfort those who suffer them. It is my hope and expectation that those who read "Motherhood Lost will hear and come to know the silent voice in the butterfly's breath-and understand."
-Michael R. Berman, M.D. Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yale University School of Medicine, author of "Parenthood Lost: Healing the Pain after Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Dea
