TFMR: No More Living Children

Listen on

Episode notes

In today's episode we hear from Janelle Ramsey. Janelle is a befriender for SANDS Leeds and runs a support group for parents who, for them, their baby who died is there last child. 

This could either be because a decision has been made to stop trying for children (or more living children), or the decision has been made for them due to medical negligence, for example. 

Janelle is a TFMR parent herself and while she was seeking support after her loss, she thought of the idea of setting up a group for those that find themselves not going on to have a subsequent live pregnancy. The conversations around trying to conceive and pregnancy after loss are important, but it can leave those who aren't heading down these paths feeling isolated and lonely.
