21 | Kristen's Story | Termination for Medical Reasons (TFMR), Down Syndrome (T21), Procedural Abortion, Religious Hospital, Pregnancy after Loss

Kelsey chats to Kristen, who shares her story of terminating a pregnancy for medical reasons. First trimester prenatal testing (NIPT, Amniocentesis) revealed a diagnosis of Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), and she underwent a procedural/surgical abortion at the beginning of the second trimester. Termination of a wanted pregnancy involves a whole host of complicated emotions. She shares what it was like for her and her husband, including receiving care from private-religiously affiliated hospitals, and their journey to conceiving another child post-termination.
