The Turmoil of Termination

Although not often discussed openly, the termination of a pregnancy due to chromosomal, genetic or fetal abnormalities is more common than you might think.


The termination of a pregnancy due to fetal abnormalities is a devastating decision for a couple to have to make and the emotional impact can be significant.

Technological improvements in pregnancy screening and diagnostic tools mean that couples are able to receive vital information about their baby earlier than ever before – and in the majority of cases, their baby will be deemed healthy.

In some cases however, parents will be faced with results that leave them not only heartbroken, but also having to decide whether or not to continue with their pregnancy.
