The Pink Elephants Support Network: TFMR shared stories (posts) » 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.


  • These stories appear in random order.
  • Stories which help one person, may be unhelpful for another.

Please use the dropdown category box to select a particular topic or to avoid other topics.

The decision-making category includes stories that reflect the vast array of potential experiences.

About the resource

“Having to make the decision to terminate a pregnancy can leave you feeling more isolated than ever. Being able to read the stories of others who have walked a similar path to you can go along way in helping you feel less alone.”

The Pink Elephants Support Network provides the latest resources, information and peer-support for anyone impacted by early pregnancy loss. Using evidence, empathy and connection, our unique digital-first approach offers a single source of specialist support, whenever and wherever it’s needed — for anyone who has directly experienced it, for family and friends, corporate partners or healthcare professionals seeking proven ways to help.

Their TFMR Shared Stories page includes written stories from five parents who have experienced a termination after a prenatal diagnosis.
