Reannon's Journey


This is the story of Reannon's Journey. With frankness she describes the dilemma she faced when she found she was pregnant, her experience of a medical termination at 16 weeks, and how, working through the Journey programme in a group, she was able to express all she was feeling; to mourn the loss of her baby and come to a place of peace and forgiveness.
What one viewer had to say...
"Thanks for being brave enough to share your stories. This is the most helpful thing I have come across in 3 years. I feel less alone now."
