The most uncertain time in my life.

April 7, 2020

After I found out I was scared, and more than anything shocked. I was 16 and I had seen this happen on TV before but it was happening to me. The NHS made the procedure as easy as it could have been, they provided me with comfort the whole day until it was my turn. Coming from a religious family and practicing it in my daily life, afterwards I felt like I wasn’t allowed to practice my faith, this passed eventually as I grew older.

4 years later and I am here, I no longer have that feeling of guilt that lingered because I know that it was my choice and one day I hope to become a mum, but just not yet and definitely not then.
