Other Support Services

Whatever your needs at this stage in your abortion journey, here are a few resources from trusted organisations and charities to support you.

In addition to our Talkline, here are a few safe and supportive spaces.

Antenatal Screening Support 

 

ARC

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.
