Our baby has very little brain tissue
Editor's CommentThis is a tragic situation for you all as a family, and I am sure you will grieve your loss whether you have a termination or carry the baby to term. If you decide on termination a surgical termination is usually still available at 16 weeks although this does vary from area to area so you may need to travel if your hospital/clinic do not offer a late surgical abortion.
It may be worth thinking through how you as a family can grieve for your loss. Some people have found that carrying the baby to term and allowing a natural process to take it's course is easier than making the decision to end the pregnancy. Others find the termination route easier but then you will just have your scan pictures to focus on your loss. Neither route is easy but if you would like to talk to someone about your decision, or just get some support please call the national helpline 0800 4000 999 or go to Online advisor. There are also support groups if you would like to talk to other couples in a similar position support groups for fetal abnormality
