Summary
  • Ndlovu takes us right into the heart of her grief, she allows us into her secret, dark place of the terrible loss of her third child who was stillborn. The book speaks into the silence around this issue. Like miscarriage, stillbirth is something women are supposed to get over and move on with. Invisible Earthquake is placed in the wider South African context by Sue Fawcus, in which she writes tenderly and expertly about stillbirth from the point of view of a medical practitioner, a specialist obstetrician
