Counselling imageDuring pregnancy women are routinely offered screening tests such as an ultrasound scan or a blood test. Some women and couples will be told that there is a risk their foetus has a serious abnormality. This may cause feelings of deep shock, acute grief and confusion.

The IFPA is here to provide counselling support to women and couples throughout and after the pre-natal screening and testing process. We offer specialised, non-directive counselling. Our counsellors will support you through your decision-making process as you consider your options relative to your life circumstances.

 
Our service is for women and couples who are:

  • Making decisions during and after the pre-natal testing process
  • Told that their foetus has an abnormality
  • Having to make difficult decisions about continuing with a pregnancy
  • Having to make difficult decisions about ending the pregnancy
  • In need of information on abortion and how to access services overseas
  • Having to cope with complex and painful issues after a decision, including bereavement

Help is offered for as long as is needed
