Decisions During Pregnancy

SOFT UK offers information and support to families from the moment that parents receive a worrying screening result or a diagnosis of trisomy 18 or trisomy 13. 

We are here for you when you are making difficult decisions about continuing with or ending a pregnancy, and when you are coping with complex and painful issues after making a decision. If you need to talk to one of our family support volunteers, please get in touch.
