Cara has recently run a 5k at Crystal Palace. The training and run was a great focus and cathartic process for Cara. We are so grateful to Cara for her support in raising awareness and funds and sharing her ectopic sadness.
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.
The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust believes that the deaths and trauma associated with ectopic pregnancy should be prevented or minimised and seeks to support women and their families through this difficult period of their lives. The Charity also provides Information, Education and Support to medical professionals who treat early pregnancy complications.
