Wherever you’re at, here are a few resources to help you navigate your experience.
In addition to our talkline, here are a few safe and supportive spaces.
ARC help parents and professionals through antenatal screening and its consequences. They provide non-directive information and support to parents before, during and after antenatal screening; when they are told their baby has an anomaly; when they are making difficult decisions about continuing with or ending a pregnancy, and when they are coping with complex and painful issues after making a decision, including bereavement.
They have a forum for peer support and a helpline (for parents and professionals) which is open Monday to Friday, 10am - 5.30pm. The number is 0207 713 7486.
Dopo provides 121 emotional support before, during and after abortion with a trained abortion doula. Their approach is holistic and inclusive and their aim is to ensure women, men, trans and non-binary individuals feel seen, safe and supported throughout their experience.
They also provide free, virtual drop-in abortion support groups on the first Tuesday of every month from 7pm - 8:30pm in collaboration with Sheffield Maternity Cooperative.
