Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
More information about The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust: Ectopic Pregnancy is a common, life threatening condition that is the leading cause of death in early pregnancy. It affects 1 in 80 pregnancies in the UK and women who suffer have to face the physical trauma of major invasive treatment, their own mortality, the impact on their future fertility and the sad loss of losing their baby all very quickly. This can be a very frightening and distressing experience.
It started in February 2019. After finding out I was pregnant with mine & my husband Deans second child I went to the GP with a slight painon my right side. Ever so slight I was referred to the Royal Princess Hospital in Telford to their Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit after multiple invasive examinations, internal scans and after around 12 trips back and forth to the hospital over 3 weeks the consultant decided it was time to operate. I ended up having my right tube removed due to an ectopic pregnancy. This was incredibly difficult for me and ended up having to have therapy due to the impact it had on me.
I managed to finally start recovering emotionally in 2020.
Then again February 2021, exactly the same date of my removal of my tube I was given the news I was having a second ectopic on my left side.
I want to raise awareness for the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust because I didn’t have the full support I needed the first time around instantly and I didn’t know how many suffered this. In fact I didn’t even know what it was. I want to be able to help people going through this horrendous time and to raise funds for the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust to be able to help as many people like myself as possible.
