Some women decide to continue the pregnancy, some opt for adoption, and some decide on termination of pregnancy or abortion.
About 1 in 3 women have an abortion at some point.
If you are pregnant, and are unsure what to do, need to talk to someone, or feel that you would wish to have an abortion, it is important to go and see your general practitioner or come to speak to a member of staff at Sandyford.
If you decide to come to Sandyford, you will be welcome to attend the TOPAR (Termination of Pregnancy Assessment and Referral) service. You will have time to talk, and will see staff who will help to support your decision.
