The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust
Ectopic Pregnancy is a common, life threatening condition that is the leading cause of death in early pregnancy. It affects 1 in 80 pregnancies in the UK and women who suffer have to face the physical trauma of major invasive treatment, their own mortality, the impact on their future fertility and the sad loss of losing their baby all very quickly. This can be a very frightening and distressing experience.
The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust believes that the deaths and trauma associated with ectopic pregnancy should be prevented or minimised and seeks to support women and their families through this difficult period of their lives. The Charity also provides Information, Education and Support to medical professionals who treat early pregnancy complications.
At the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust there are a number of people who have been through the physical and emotional trauma associated with an Ectopic Pregnancy. They believe strongly in ‘TALK THERAPY’ and believe that the forums and helpline can really help people to heal.
From experience they find that many people feel so alone in their experiences and eventually, people around them are expecting them to move on and talk about what happened less.
However, everyone is an individual and you may still need to continue to talk about things or gather more information. For these reasons there are a variety of ways for you to get in touch with The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust including:
• Telephone helpline: 0207 733 2653 – There is a 24 hour answer service available for you to take your details and for you to leave a message. • Email – firstname.lastname@example.org • Website – www.ectopic.org.uk • Online Forum – www.ectopic.org.uk/talk • Post – 483 Green Lanes, London, N13 4BS • The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust can also be found on Facebook and Twitter
