Child sexual exploitation & pregnancy

A note on pregnancy and terminated pregnancy

If your daughter becomes pregnant through sexual exploitation, it is important to seek support from specialist youth sexual health services, such as Brook and that medical practitioners are informed about the circumstances of conception. This is because a DNA test of the baby, or written evidence of miscarriage or termination may be used as evidence against a suspect in court.

Pace can signpost you on to local agencies that can help, as well as offer emotional support to you as a parent in such circumstances.
