Ending a pregnancy for fetal abnormality

Overview

In this section you can find out about the experience of ending a pregnancy after the discovery of a fetal abnormality, by listening to people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 40 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as scans, understanding the baby’s diagnosis, making the decision to end the pregnancy and saying ‘goodbye’. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
