If you are pregnant and considering having a termination, you are not alone. Many women, from all different walks of life, seek a pregnancy termination at some stage in their lives, for a wide range of different reasons. No matter the circumstances surrounding your pregnancy, you have a range of different options available to you, and there are plenty of people at 132 Healthwise and elsewhere who can help you to make the right decision for you.
In many cases, particularly when a pregnancy was unplanned or accidental, the circumstances are simply not right for you to have a baby. You may already have children who need your attention, or have other commitments that must take priority at this time in your life, like caring for a partner or relative, your studies, or work. Although abortion is just one of the options that you have when confronted with an unexpected pregnancy, it can be the right choice when continuing with the pregnancy might harm your wellbeing or that of your family. You will find plenty of support and advice at the clinic to help you to be sure that you are making the right decision when you consider a pregnancy termination under these types of circumstances. Your doctor will always ensure that you are certain about your decision before allowing any medical procedures to be performed.
Sometimes, the reasons for seeking a pregnancy termination are more medical than personal. It is not always possible to continue with a pregnancy without risking your own mental or physical health. You may have been advised by your doctor that it could be dangerous for you to complete the pregnancy, or that your test results suggest the foetus could have a serious abnormality. Having a termination under these circumstances can be very distressing, particularly if the pregnancy was planned or if your health is at risk, so it is important to find a supportive doctor who will take the time to talk through your options for the termination with you. You will find this help at 132 Healthwise.
Women visit the clinic for many different reasons, but no matter why they are here, they will find a supportive and caring atmosphere where they can make the right decisions about pregnancy termination.
