Useful publications

In addition to medical, nursing and midwifery texts, there are several publications which you may find useful for yourself and your patients.

Miscarriage Association leaflets

We publish a range of leaflets on the facts and feelings of pre-24 week pregnancy loss.  One title is produced in several community languages, in bi-lingual format; and another is written in a version for people with reading or learning difficulties and a version for D/deaf people.  Another leaflet is designed especially for young people experiencing pregnancy loss.your-miscarriage-deaf
