On this page, you will find stories from parents that have gone through very difficult journeys, and have chose termination of pregnancy for medical reasons.
Their stories are all unique with a variety of diagnoses. It is my hopes to bring awareness to termination for medical reasons, and that these stories will help you in your pathway so you feel less alone.
You will also find useful resources and other blogs that may be of help.
If you’d like to share your story here, I’d be honored. I’d love to read the stories and learn, and I’d love to celebrate your baby’s life on this page.
I find that the stories found online are under representing those that chose to terminate their pregnancies, and those that chose to carry to term but put their child through no lifesaving measures. I’d love this page to fill that online void.
Those parents need a voice so they don’t feel alone. So many have chosen this route… we need to hear about it more.
Please send me a message if you or someone you know is interested.
