In the UK, it is estimated that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss during pregnancy or birth. A surprising number of babies die very early in life too. In this Baby Loss Awareness Week special, podcast host Zainab speaks to Laila who bravely shares her experience of losing her new baby 10 years ago. We explore family life after losing a baby as well as what our Muslim community can do to support one another more during such a difficult life event.
