Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: An informative article that explains not only the physiological but the emotional aspects of pregnancy and miscarriage.

We were living in a house at the top of a hill. From the window in the baby’s room you could see the whole of the city on a rare bright day. And at night sometimes you could see the lights stretch away to forever. The baby was unsettled, waking every 2 hours. We were exhausted. We didn’t go out much, never quite comfortable with a babysitter and my mom was busy that night. It was New Year’s Eve.
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: At this time of year, many of us are making those New Year's resolutions.
