What if I am pregnant?

If you believe or know that you are pregnant, it is important that you seek advice and support as soon as possible.

As uncomfortable as it may be to read, you may need to seek assistance to protect you and your unborn child from the moment you discover you are pregnant.

Research shows that during pregnancy, or straight after birth, domestic violence and abuse can often become worse. It can also be the time when abuse first starts.

Before you were pregnant there was only you. Now, suddenly, you have to consider the rights of and risks to your unborn child.

Unfortunately, research also tells us that where there is domestic violence and abuse there can very often also be child abuse.

There are support services and other organisations that can help and advise you when you are pregnant, many details of which can be obtained via your local GP, or midwife.

Remember - the safety of you, and your unborn child are paramount.

In an emergency, please don't hesitate to dial 999.
