“In the summer of 2012, 12 weeks pregnant, I had the blood test for the risk of Down’s syndrome, and I had a poor prognosis. I had to wait until I was 21 weeks to have the amniocentesis. Then wait another 18 weeks for the result. Everyone was trying to reassure me, I was supported a lot. But the diagnosis was verified. I had to wait another 3 days to terminate the pregnancy, at 15 weeks. After a rejection reaction, I spoke to my little girl during the short time before the procedure. On D-Day, we go to the slaughterhouse. I had a close-knit medical team, which helped me. I welcomed this child as if she were alive. Cléophée was small, but beautiful. I asked for cremation. Today, I feel ready to disperse his ashes. The hard part is fixing the guilt. For Galatea, the onset of pregnancy took place on November 22, 13: two years to the day after this IMG. “
