Parents John and Alexa Warden speak about their experience.
They share what they needed from the doctor, midwife and other healthcare professionals
when making the decision to end the pregnancy of their baby Benedict.
They describe their need for understanding of their loss, their need for honest information
about termination for foetal abnormality and post-mortem examination. How they told their
children about their baby brother.
