What will happen to the foetal tissue?

We understand that having a surgical procedure can be an emotional time for any woman.

As part of the procedure we respectfully manage the removal of the foetal tissues to ensure the abortion is carried out safely and sensitively.

If a woman requests they would like to take the foetal tissue remains away with them, we can arrange this. Please speak to a nurse about this when you come for your consultation with us.

If you do not have any special requests, Marie Stopes UK will ensure that all foetal tissue is managed and disposed of in a manner that is not only respectful and dignified but also in a way that assures compliance with all relevant legislation. Our doctors and nurses follow  The Human Tissue Act (HTA) which has a clinical framework for the storage and disposal of foetal tissue. 

Need to talk to us?

Our caring, specialist staff are on hand 24/7 to offer expert advice and support – from your initial consultation to treatment aftercare.
