The Burden of Choice

Collected stories from parents who faced heart-breaking decisions after prenatal diagnosis

Finding out during pregnancy that your much-wanted baby has an anomaly is a traumatic and devastating experience. Deciding whether to end the pregnancy is a choice no-one should have to make.

This book tells the stories of 25 mothers who made the agonising decision to end their pregnancy in these circumstances. Their stories, dedicated to the babies they have lost, have been written to help and support anyone who has faced this heart-breaking decision. The stories were collected and edited by an ARC member, Georgina Pearson, and all proceeds are being donated to ARC.

This book costs £12.99 including P&P in the UK. For overseas prices please contact ARC.
