Still A Part of Us: A podcast about pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and infant loss

Dec 5, 2021

Mom Victoria tells about her pregnancy and birth story of her first child Ophelia, who was stillborn at 39 weeks and 4 days. Victoria and her husband Stephen were at her weekly appointment, when the midwife couldn't find Ophelia's heartbeat on the Doppler. They were sent to the nearest hospital, where they confirmed that Ophelia had passed away. Victoria was induced and delivered Ophelia in January 2019.
