My story

[p]I'm going to shave my head to raise money for Antenatal Results and Choices![/p][p]We have had the experience of needing to access ARCs services - speaking to one of their parent support volunteers. It was during our most darkest days. It was such a help and comfort to speak to someone who had been through something similar and was on the other side of their raw grief. It gave us hope.[/p][p]I worry that in this time of great crisis, the already traumatic experience of being told there may be something terribly wrong with the health of your baby, is being intensified with overstretched health professionals (trying their best, I have no doubt) and not being able to have your partner present at scans and screenings. ARCs services are in even more demand at this time and they really need all the help that people can give, all donations are gratefully received and put to good use helping women and their partners through a truly nightmarish experience.[/p][p]About ARC:[/p][p]Around 800,000 women in the UK become pregnant each year. More than 40,000 will be told there is a chance their baby has a genetic or structural condition. Naturally, this can cause a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty. Most parents will ultimately be reassured the pregnancy is progressing as expected. Sadly, some will receive the devastating news that their baby has a serious, sometimes lethal condition or might be told that the outlook is very uncertain.[/p][p]ARC offers non-directive information and support to parents before, during and after antenatal screening; when they are told their baby has an anomaly; when they are making difficult decisions about continuing with or ending a pregnancy, and when they are coping with complex and painful issues after making a decision, including bereavement.[/p][p][br][/p]
