British Pregnancy Advisory Service and Pregnancy Sickness Support

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service is a charity which sees 70,000 women a year for pregnancy advice and abortion care. Pregnancy Sickness Support (PSS) is a charity dedicated to supporting women with hyperemesis. Both charities regularly see women considering termination because their severe pregnancy sickness has not been properly treated. Despite raised awareness of the condition through the Duchess of Cambridge, there is little understanding that many women struggle to access comparable care. While absolutely supporting any woman's decision to end a pregnancy due to hyperemesis, both charities believe passionately that women should have access to the medical treatment that enables them to continue an otherwise wanted pregnancy. bpas and PSS collaborated to raise awareness of women's experience and highlight what could be done so that women get the best possible treatment when suffering from severe pregnancy sickness, to ensure abortion is never their only option.
