There are 3 options for any woman faced with an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy:
- Continue the pregnancy and raise a child
- Continue the pregnancy and give the child up for adoption or fostering
- Discontinue the pregnancy
At some time in their lives, some women are faced with making a decision they never expected to make. This choice may be straightforward for some, for others the decision may be quite difficult, perhaps the most difficult they will every make. Our doctors and staff respect the individual and private choice of every woman and are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for those women seeking termination of pregnancy.
The key goal of pregnancy counselling is to encourage our patients to make their own personal decision and feel comfortable with the decision they have made. Counselling is also designed to limit regret and long-term psychological consequences by exploring alternatives and resolving ambivalence.
