About the Book

Surviving Reproductive Loss: Stories of Creativity and Positive Transformation in Women’s Lives tells the fascinating stories of the lives and creative accomplishments of nearly fifty women who experienced infertility, pregnancy loss or stillbirth. Robert J. Dinkin, PhD, historian, and Roxane Head Dinkin, PhD, clinical psychologist, have teamed up again to write a follow-up to their previous volume, Infertility and the Creative Spirit, published by iUniverse in 2010. The Dinkins tell the stories of women innovators in writing, entertaining, sports, politics, and social reform. When Julia Child was living in Paris with her husband Paul and unable to become pregnant, she turned to learning the art of French cooking, ultimately producing her famous cookbooks and TV shows. When she showed up with a hot plate and an omelet pan on an educational television program, the first cooking show was born. Read about her and the many other women who made major contributions in their own fields and who also changed the larger society by contributing to the well-being of women and children.
