Fotini’s story – The pain of terminating much wanted pregnancies (post) » stories of prenatal diagnosis

We know that prenatal diagnosis is more common than many think. Yet, we rarely hear the stories of the people that have received unexpected news about the health, development or genetics of their unborn baby. We wish to change that so parents no longer feel hidden or isolated.

We have collated parents stories to share with the variety of reactions, experiences and outcomes.

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.
