real talk on pregnancy loss
When your baby dies, you find yourself in a life you never expected. And even though pregnancy and infant loss are common, they’re not common to you. Instead, you feel like a stranger in your own body, surrounded by well-meaning people who often don’t know how to support you.
What you need during this time is not a book offering easy answers. You need a safe place to help you navigate what comes next.
In Unexpecting, bereaved mom Rachel Lewis is the friend you never knew you’d need, walking you through the unique grief of baby loss. When nothing about life after loss makes sense . . . this book will.

Why a discussion community?
When I experienced my first pregnancy loss, I felt “other” everywhere I went. In fact, I felt like a stranger in my own body — and my body felt like a stranger to me. That is — until I gathered with other bereaved parents. And then I belonged. I felt seen. I felt heard. I felt held.
Pregnancy loss and infant loss are considered common losses — and yet, really, there’s nothing common about them. When it happens to you — it’s devastating.
This book reaches the depths of our losses and the heights of our love. It explores the science behind grief and the intangible algorithm of faith (or no faith). It talks about the loss of our old normal and the creation of the new. In short — it’s a comprehensive resource on what to expect when you are no longer expecting.
And that’s why having someone hold your hand through the reading process — someone who has been there both personally and professionally — is an invaluable companion to this book.
