What our abortion clients say


I just wanted to say what fantastic care and support I received from all the staff at BPAS Stratford. Thank you for making something so hard, manageable. You all do wonderful jobs.” - January 2014

"I had the need to make a very difficult journey to the Merseyside Clinic in Liverpool recently with my daughter to avail of your services.  I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff very much for your professionalism and kindness during a time that has been very difficult for both of us. My daughter was cared for and supported sensitively and I, as her mother, traveling with her felt supported by association. I had always felt that it was a woman's right to choose but even for all I feel on the subject, I don't think I would ever have thought of making such a journey with my daughter, and the challenges that would bring to me as a mother.” - January 2014

“I had an abortion at your Richmond BPAS and would just like to applaud all of the nurses and reception staff there! They all made me feel very at ease and kept an upbeat atmosphere in somewhere I thought would be a rather depressing place. 2 nurses in particular were brilliant and I will never forget them when I remember my experience. An older lady who held my hand through the surgical aspiration (awake) and was chatting to me the whole way through trying to take my mind off of the pain. She was very comforting for me whilst the procedure felt quite traumatic and extremely painful. Now the highlight of my day was the last nurse I was to see! Her name was Bridget and she was absolutely amazing in the way she spoke to me and reassured me about what I had just gone through. I feel like she went over and beyond her role in her approach and left me feeling very happy and with a positive outlook. Both nurses mentioned were absolutely amazing and a real credit to your team.” - January 2014

“I attended the BPAS clinic in Leicester today and was seen by a fantastic nurse called Sarah (I think that was her name, I was a bit distracted!). She was absolutely fantastic and totally put me at ease. I'd actually already miscarried but she made the internal scan seem not too awful and was kind and sensitive in the way she handled me.” - Nov 2013

“I went through a termination earlier this week at the Peterborough clinic and would like to take opportunity to thank all the staff involved from my initial consultation to the procedure itself, particularly Sarah who was by my side during procedure and made it much easier than I was anticipating. Your staff are a real credit to the organisation and without their professionalism and caring, non-judgemental approach the difficulties faced those considering a termination would be much harder to bear.” - Nov 2013

“I was made to feel very safe and welcome at Chester BPAS. the ladies are non-judgmental which is something I think we all worry about, thank you.” - Oct 2013

“I was treated at the Swindon clinic and was unfortunately unable to pass my thanks on to all of the wonderful doctors and nurses I came into contact with, I cannot praise them highly enough. A special thanks to the nurse who held first my hand, and then the fan to cool me following the procedure, she was wonderful.” - Oct 2013

“I would like to thank the employees at the Chester clinic. They were all so welcoming and friendly towards me, they made me feel really comfortable in such a horrible situation. The receptionist catered just for me and got me the ideal appointment. I would also like to say a special thank you to Nurse Amy she was so caring, I felt completely at ease with her. Thank you to all your employees, everyone has made this experience a little easier for me.” - Sept 2013

“I got home three hours ago after having my consultation and subsequently my surgical abortion. I feel surprisingly better than I thought I would. All the staff I dealt with were amazing, welcoming, non-judgemental and supportive. They talked through everything with me at each stage of the process and double checked that I was happy to go ahead with the surgery. The aftercare was excellent and the discharge doctor explained everything very clearly. I especially liked that the contraceptive implant was put in after the surgery so I now know I'm covered. Great service and completely feel like my choices were respected. Thank you for making a difficult situation less stressful.”  - July 2013

“Hi, I had a consultation at the Winchester clinic today and just wanted to say how amazing all the staff were. I'd been feeling really anxious but each one of them put me completely at ease and were totally non-judgmental. It has made me feel so much better about everything. I just wanted to pass on my thanks to them for being so lovely, I really appreciated it.” - Sept 2013

"On the *th may I discovered I was pregnant. After a long discussion with my partner we both decided we wanted a termination. So I was referred to BPAS for a medical assessment. At the assessment I had an ultrasound which confirmed I was 27 weeks pregnant and unable to have a termination. Having had no symptoms and faced with the news I would be mother in the less than 3 months time, I immediately went into shock and had a panic attack. The staff did an incredible job of calming me down. The counseller must of spent a good hour listening to my feelings and worries and somehow I left with a smile on my face and the determination to be the best parent I could be to my child. It's not been an easy month. Struggling financially, stressful and invasive medical appointments, dealing with housing and work, and my own mental health, but the advice and kind words from the BPAS staff is keeping my spirits up and helping me through. And we are pleased to say we are expecting a healthy baby boy on August *th. So thank you to the amazingly skilled, dedicated and compassionate staff at BPAS London East for helping me through this testing time and giving me the drive to carry on. You are all wonderful." - June 2015
