The Burden of Choice

Collected stories from parents facing a diagnosis of a fetal anomaly during pregnancy.

Finding out during pregnancy that your much wanted baby has been diagnosed with 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 have lost a baby in these circumstances. Their stories, dedicated to the babies they have lost, have been written to help and support anyone facing a similar decision. The stories were collected and edited by an ARC member, Georgina Pearson, and all proceeds are being donated to ARC.

Cost per book: £12.99 including postage in the UK. For overseas orders please contact ARC.
