Safiyya Vorajee

Loving and Losing You, Azaylia
  • Loving and Losing You, Azaylia

  • What the world saw, and what it didn't

    "Nothing could ever have prepared me for this. Some days it breaks me, and I can't even bear to do it. I always thought I was tough, but it brings me to my knees every single time."

    Safiyya's beautiful baby daughter, Azaylia, was eight weeks old when she was diagnosed with leukaemia. By the age of 8 months, Safiyya and her partner, Ashley, had to say their final goodbye.

    This is Safiyya's account of motherhood, hope and loss. It is about the unbreakable and incomparable bond between mother and daughter ... about what happens to a family when they face a life without the person that completed them, putting readers in the shoes no parent wants to be in. But, above all, it's a celebration of a remarkable little life that showed spirit that no baby should have to and a family who loved and fought to hold onto every precious moment.

Safiyya Vorajee was born in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. She trained as a dental nurse before going on to work as an aesthetic practitioner whilst growing her social media following. Safiyya now has over a million highly engaged followers on Instagram and her own cosmetics brand, Mz Pretty. Following the tragic loss of their eight-month-old daughter Azaylia in 2021, Safiyya and Azaylia's father, former Coventry City footballer Ashley Cain, set up The Azaylia Foundation, a charity to help support children fighting cancer and their families. Loving and Losing You, Azaylia is Safiyya's first book.
