In this podcast Julia Goldsmith, from Catcher Media, talks to Kayleigh Hills, Safeguarding Matron from BPAS (British Pregnancy Advisory Service), to discuss young people’s choices in relation to pregnancy, with medically and legally accurate, impartial information on all options, including abortion.
The programme explores what most girls would would be thinking.
If you have an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy you can contact BPAS on 03457 30 40 30 or www.bpas.org to make a booking for consultation for abortion treatment or to discuss all your options, including abortion treatment, adoption and becoming a parent. BPAS is the UK’s leading abortion care service which provides local treatment which is paid for by the NHS.
Going direct BPAS is the quickest route. You can find a clinic here: https://www.bpas.org/contact-us/find-a-clinic/
Scans are given onsite to ensure pregnancy alongside pregnancy tests. Sometimes pills are posted out to take at home, always followed up by BPAS. They can provide treatment under 24 weeks of pregnancy.
Pre-treatment counselling can help with decision making process and post treatment counselling is offered for whenever the girl needs it could even be a year later.
Contraception is key and talked about at each point in the process.
Under 18 must have a responsible adult (18+) to be with them and to stay with them for 24 hours. But this shouldn’t become a barrier to accessing treatment. They do not need parental permission.
