About the resource

“My name is Fotini, mum to my angel babies Bruce and Blake.

It’s been just over ten years since my first termination for medical reasons (TFMR), and while a decade is quite some time, I still remember the moment like yesterday.”

Fotini shared her experience of undergoing two terminations for medical reasons.
