Post Abortion

We find we are increasingly being asked for help over the trauma of losing a child.

Abortion is the medical process of ending a pregnancy so that it does not result in the birth of a child.

There are many reasons as to why a woman may choose not to continue with her pregnancy, from risks to her own health right through to personal circumstances or the possibility that the baby may be affected by a medical condition.

For some women, choosing to end their pregnancy may be a relatively simple and easy decision to reach, for others it will be one of the most difficult choices they ever make.

The complex range of emotions that surround an unplanned pregnancy are often what make the choice so difficult. It is these psychological factors coupled with social and economic influences and pressures that can sometimes lead to women feeling pressured into making a decision that is not entirely their own.
