This heartfelt, authentic and humorous piece takes a dive into the realities of grief, as a result of pregnancy and infant loss. It took a lot more than writing a book to navigate through my grief following the death of my daughter. Yet, it was through writing this book and my daughter’s legacy that I was able to reveal the truth behind grief.

About the Book:

One in four. These are the odds for pregnancy and infant loss. 

In the weeks and months following her daughter Kailani’s death, LaCara Biddles encountered multiple layers of grief that had to be navigated to facilitate her healing.  Many of these layers are unknown territory to others until they, too, are faced with the harsh reality of pregnancy or infant loss. 

Heavenly Seas invites parents dealing with pregnancy or infant loss to take what resonates with them to support their journey of grief. Some of the methods discussed—which allowed LaCara to transition from an all-consuming state of mourning and grief to a state where both grief and joy coexist in her life—include:


  • Giving yourself permission to grieve
  • Creating memorials
  • Keeping a journal


If you’ve lost a child, Heavenly Seas seeks to remind you that you are not alone. There is light at the end of the tunnel. It might take weeks, months, or years to get there. Though, the more we take care of ourselves during our grief journey, the greater the opportunity we have to see the light.

5/5

“I could not put this book down. LaCara’s story had me in tears, laughter, and more tears. I felt like I was on the journey with her and felt her grief through the pages of the book. This book is going to help so many women through can only be described as a true nightmare for any parent, and for anyone wanting to learn more about neonatal loss or wanting to support a loved one going through it. LaCara’s passion for helping women overcome this tragic loss is apparent through the whole book.
