“I never thought I would have found myself in the situation but, I wanted to thank the staff at MSI for their professionalism, kind advice and treatment and non-judgemental attitude at every moment. “

A client was living in the Middle East with her boyfriend when she found out she was pregnant. She traveled to London for her surgical abortion.

“In 2012 I discovered that I had become pregnant. I was living in the middle East at the time as a working professional and had a fantastic job, lovely long term boyfriend but wasn’t ready for children or to have to leave the country (relations outside of marriage, regardless I was British, is not allowed).

“I booked my appointment with MSI over the phone and flew back to London for the procedure. My boyfriend came with me and despite some discouragement at the door (protestors) I was unwavering in the decision. I just wanted to send a note, as I’m now 31 and still unsure of starting a family due to my career.”

“It’s not an easy process to go through but I don’t regret a thing. “

“A termination was never something I wanted, of course, I never thought I would have found myself in the situation but, I wanted to thank the staff at MSI for their professionalism, kind advice and treatment and non-judgemental attitude at every moment. It’s not an easy process to go through but I don’t regret a thing. 

“I had sedation and felt some cramping after the procedure for a few minutes but I walked out of the clinic feeling better and better with every minute. 

“It’s important for people reading this to understand how supportive and kind the staff there are. And to all the lovely staff, THANK YOU. I never felt encouraged to go ahead with the termination but equally was never discouraged. You did all the right things and said all the right things and for that I’m forever grateful. I have a good life and perhaps one day I’ll have a family but for now, me and my now husband are really happy as we are.”
