Beyond the Loss Podcast

Season #3 – Episode #10 – Growing in the Spaces Left Behind: A TFMR Story

This week, Aditi and Danyelle welcome Soraya and Zain to the podcast to discuss the loss of their son Amaanat. During his 20-week scan, they discovered that Amaanat had a non-fatal but significant brain anomaly, leading to their decision to terminate the pregnancy. Soraya and Zain talk candidly and openly about their experience, their decision-making, and ultimately what it’s like to make one of the hardest decisions a parent can make.
