This month we remember little ones who were lost during pregnancy or infancy. In the latest special episode of Motherboard, we hear personal stories of pregnancy and infancy loss from our panel.
Each October, babies who died too soon through miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, during birth and in other instances are remembered worldwide.
The loss of a child is incredibly difficult to talk about and sometimes parents may suffer in silence. In the latest episode of Motherboard, we wanted to break this silence. We hear the personal stories from our panellists Anne-Marie Murtagh and Anthony Casey, who have both lost children. Along with our host Avril Flynn, our panel are also joined by specialist fertility counsellor Roisin Venables.
This article & podcast is dedicated to the memory of baby Dylan English who was born sleeping on June 21st 2017.
