What is The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust?

The leading national charity providing dedicated support and information on ectopic pregnancy

The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust is:

In-depth, providing detailed general information on ectopic pregnancy that is medically reviewed and overseen;

Empathic, as many of us at the charity have been through an ectopic pregnancy, facilitating a welcoming shared space among others who experience the condition; and

Focused, as we are entirely dedicated to ectopic pregnancy.

The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust is indebted to its highly committed trustees, medical advisers, ambassadors, team members, volunteers, fundraisers, donors, and friends – each of whom devotes their precious time and energy in furthering The EPT’s vision and aims. Thank you to each and every person who so generously contributes to The EPT’s cause.


Our generous Ambassadors help to spread awareness of the condition by talking about ectopic pregnancy and the support and information that we provide.
