What to Expect from us during a Fetal Anomaly Abortion

  • Doctor will review your records and, if necessary, contact your physician to obtain any further medically relevant information.

Fetal Anomaly Abortion Resources

We recommend the following resources to help you during your healing journey:

Ending A Wanted Pregnancy – If you’ve received a severe prenatal or maternal diagnosis and have decided to end your wanted pregnancy, this website exists to provide you understanding, comfort and support. Here, you will find the empathy, compassion and solace you deserve following this uncommon, traumatic and often misunderstood form of pregnancy loss.

MISSFoundation – Since 1996, the MISS Foundation C.A.R.E.S. for families experiencing the death of a baby or child at any age and from any cause. The MISS Foundation provides a sanctuary allowing health and necessary grieving in the face of tragedy which Western culture no longer fosters or supports.

Pregnancy Loss Support Program (PLSP) from NCJW NY- The National Council of Jewish Women’s Pregnancy Loss Support Program for Miscarriage, Stillborn and Newborn death: “It’s hard to imagine anything more heartbreaking than the loss of a child. Even the most loving friends and family may not understand a grieving parent’s needs, which can lead to additional isolation and sorrow.”

A Heartbreaking Choice – This website supports women who have undergone a pregnancy termination due to poor prenatal diagnosis, problems with their own health, or for the health of another fetus (selective reduction).

The Compassionate Friends – “Whether your family has had a child die (at any age from any cause) or you are trying to help those who have gone through this life-altering experience, The Compassionate Friends exists to provide friendship, understanding and hope to those going through the natural grieving process.”
