I fell pregnant again shortly after my son turned a year old. I have a long term health condition that means pregnancy can be dangerous for both myself and foetus. I had to consider my son’s welfare and was the risk of having another child worth making myself very unwell?

I had my abortion 3 days after my birthday and within a week I was back at work in an environment where I commonly saw pregnant women and young children. I spent my first day back crying out of the way of people when a lady with a newborn came up for a talk with a colleague.

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of the pregnancy I ended, especially when being told recently that it’s unlikely I will ever have any more children due to my health, the guilt and second guessing myself is enormous but I know it was the right decision for myself and my son.
