About Laila Bougria

Laila Bougria was born and brought up in Antwerp, Belgium, but will soon be moving to London to pursue new dreams and adventures with her family. She is software developer and photographer, but above all, she is a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a wife, and last but mostly, a mother to two beautiful children. Her firstborn girl Sahar, was born on May 7th 2013 at 22 weeks gestation, after being diagnosed with severe hydrocephalus and therefore incompatible with life outside the womb. She stayed to say goodbye for a very brief moment and now lives in the hearts of her parents and family. Her little rainbow boy Ayden, was due just 11 days shy from his little sister Sahar, and arrived safe and sound into this world on September 15th, 2014. After losing Sahar, Laila started a healing journey through a blog at Loving an Angel instead, on which she shared grief and joy, sorrow and hope, fears and dreams. It was a bit quiet over there during her rainbow pregnancy, but she has now found her way back to it. She has been a guest writer on Lindsey Henke's beautiful site at Stillborn and Still Breathing, and is deeply honored to share her experiences with our readers here. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram, or through her blog.
