Pregnancy, miscarriage and termination

If you are pregnant you may feel a whole range of different emotions. If possible, to try and talk these through with someone you trust, a partner, family member or friend. Whatever you decide, it is your decision.

If you are sure that you want to keep the baby, you should see your doctor as soon as possible to arrange antenatal care and to talk about looking after your health during your pregnancy. If you are unsure as to what to do, specialist support and advice is available.

Miscarriage is, sadly, an all-too-common event – about one in every four pregnancies ends this way. Another one in 100 pregnancies is ectopic – that is when the pregnancy starts developing in the wrong place, usually in one of the fallopian tubes.

A further one in 600 pregnancies is diagnosed as a molar pregnancy. If you are concerned about any of the symptoms do seek advice from your GP or local hospital, especially if you are experiencing acute pain or bleeding.
