Carrying To Term had the privilege of speaking with and learning from a mother who did not choose pregnancy continuation following a diagnosis.
Those Who've Been There
The deaths of babies are never natural, and their lives have value because they existed. They are worthy of a lifetime of love- in all the many forms that may take.
I think it holds true for dads that it doesn’t become as real for us until we are holding our babies. At least, that is how it was for me. So, my advice to other fathers on delivery day is to be present and hold onto those moments that you get.
Families need to be notified of all the options they have when they encounter a prenatal diagnosis. They have the choice to terminate or to carry their babies to term. Both choices should be communicated clearly and without bias.
Carrying To Term’s mission and vision are the result of two broken-hearted parents who love with abandon and genuinely want to see the standard of care improve and change for other parents facing a prenatal diagnosis of a life-limiting condition.
