Beyond the Loss Podcast

Season 2 – Episode #3 – Real Talk about Ending a Wanted Pregnancy

This week, Aditi and Danyelle sit down with their guest, Jena, to have a candid conversation about terminating wanted pregnancies for medical reasons.
In 2019, Jena and her husband went to their 20-week ultrasound, and it would change their life. After the loss of her first child, Isla, at 22 weeks gestation, Jena joined the community of those navigating life after pregnancy loss. She has been active in speaking about her experience of pregnancy loss and believes that creating an open dialogue is the catalyst for change.

For immediate peer support across each stage of the journey text our National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Helpline at 1-888-910-1551 or chat on our website at
