"Grief: All I Need to Know I Learned While I Was Born" is both a guide and a meditation. The author, a Certified Nurse-Midwife, did not set out to write a book about grief. But, she discovered a fascinating truth after the death of her son: the grief experience is actually a spiritual representation of the physical experience of birth -- descent, engagement, inner rotation, restitution, and birth. The words describe both transitions. This book offers unique, visual models for grief, comforting the grieving, and a way to understand how it feels as a treasured life metamorphoses from a presence into a story that is carried forever inside the hearts of those who love him. Internationally renowned Grief Researcher and Author, Robert A. Neimeyer, Ph.D., past President of the Association for Death Education and Counseling, has said of Nancy's grief model: "It is the stuff of poetry, filled with evocative imagery and power . . . intriguing and satisfying."
