Gynaecology Obstetric Counselling Service

We have an office at Peterborough District Hospital, where certain groups of patients are eligible for counselling.


Groups of patients who will be seen:

  • Termination of pregnancy
  • Post termination of pregnancy
  • Threatened miscarriage
  • Miscarriage
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Still birth
  • Early neo-natal death (within first 48 hours)
  • Pre-natal anxiety (connected with previous experiences of any of the above)
  • Infertility
  • Hysterectomy

The counselling service receives referrals from any health professionals or our patients may self-refer if the health professional has given the contact telephone details.

We offer an emergency slot on most days and provide Person Centred Counselling.
