When Caroline found out she was pregnant in 2009, she was overjoyed to learn that she was due to have a baby girl. But at the age of twenty, Caroline experienced complications which threatened not only her life, but that of her unborn daughter. Caroline had developed severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome, which resulted in the stillbirth of her daughter, Olivia.
Exposing the harsh truth behind society’s approach to stillbirth and challenging the idea that parents should carry on as before, Caroline speaks out to raise awareness about stillbirth. She hopes that her book will reach out to other families living with the devastation of losing a child.
