Ina May Gaskin and preterm birth

I know Ina May gave birth to a premature baby who passed away shortly after birth. Interestingly, having read spiritual midwifery several times, it wasn't until my DD was early, and I happened to re-read it recently, that I noticed it. I'm surprised by how little I notice that experience in her writing. Even in the birth story of another tiny baby on the Farm seems to be free of her fear or healing from it. Is there much she has written on her own experience and recovery? Or maybe at this point it has largely been wrapped into her work with the Safe Motherhood Project...
