An unintended pregnancy can be a crisis for anyone whatever your circumstances.
Or your pregnancy may have become an agonising situation if you’ve been advised of a possible foetal abnormality.
Whatever your individual circumstances, Y Bont can provide free support to individuals and couples, giving you space to think and to help you make an informed decision
Y Bont provides support to anyone who has experienced pregnancy loss from any cause and at any stage of pregnancy.
You may have sadly suffered a miscarriage, molar or ectopic pregnancy or experienced the devastation of a stillbirth or neonatal loss. Your loss may have been a recent occurrence, or it could have happened years or decades ago. You may have experienced one loss, or many. Y Bont provides free care and support giving you space to share and work through your emotions
If you have had a termination you may experience a variety of emotions; some may be unsettling and some may not surface until months or even years later.
However you are feeling now, we can provide free care and support. Y Bont can give you the time and space to share and work through these emotions as you share your experience in a safe and compassionate environment
