The Right Decision

by Rachael

I got pregnant ten years ago and made the choice to end the pregnancy. My relationship was rocky and about to end, and my partner didn’t want kids. I knew I was pregnant before I took the test and was scared as hell because I knew what I had to do.


It was the only choice for me in that moment. My partner and I were both very depressed and dealing with mental health crises. It was also never something he wanted. He went with me to the clinic and was supportive. It was the best experience it could be, but it was still scary and emotional and very raw. I wouldn’t do it again to be honest, but I am so incredibly grateful that the choice was available to me at the time because it was not the person, or relationship, or time to have a child. It still makes me feel lots of things but I know it was the right decision and have never regretted it in any way.
