If you have an abortion between 9 to 12 weeks, hospital staff should explain the options available for disposal of the pregnancy remains.
This will be done in a sensitive manner. They will help you make a decision that is right for you.
If you do not wish to make a decision about your pregnancy remains, the hospital can make a decision for you and dispose of the remains.
If you have an abortion before 9 weeks of pregnancy, you can decide how to dispose of the remains. They can be flushed down the toilet or wrapped in tissue and disposed of as you wish.
