“The Diary” is an inspirational story as shown through the eyes of a grieving mother. Whilst confronting issues that make most people feel uncomfortable, it attempts to shatter the walls of fear and ignorance surrounding death in general.
This is a book that offers hope to those seeking it, and insight for those who wish to understand. A very personal and tragic journey; “The Diary” holds something for everybody.
It was inspired by Lynne’s deceased twin daughter Megan’s very short life, is a small paperback confronting the issues of maternal loss and grief in a multiple pregnancy, and has become a valuable extension of the work being done by National Twin Loss Australia. “The Diary” has been utilized by medical professionals, other bereavement care organisations, as well as many bereaved families in the following countries: Australia, United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore and Malaysia.
This book was promoted in London in 2000 by the Multiple Birth Foundation and was used as a reference source in Jane Warland’s textbook for midwives, “The Midwife and the Bereaved Family”, published by Ausmed during that same year.
Both “The Diary” and “The Midwife and the Bereaved Family” were included as part of the Apex Australia Twin Loss Awareness Kit” which was distributed throughout hospitals in South Australia and the Northern Territory during 2003 by Apex Clubs.
For a limited time we have a couple of copies available for purchase directly from Twin Loss NZ at $12 each including postage to anywhere in New Zealand. Please email us if you are interested.
