Her daughter is now seven and Miriam has never regretted that last-minute decision to save her life. Speaking about her experience of motherhood, Miriam said:
Having Kayleigh made me realise I could do anything, that it was up to me to make what had happened a positive thing in my life. But I’ll also tell her about the moment I decided to keep her, and how I felt all this love for her, love that is even stronger now. Watching her grow up, I feel lucky to have her in my life: I love her with all my heart.
Miriam now works with women who have been through rape and speaks regularly about her experience.
