Alison’s Bath half marathon 2011

After an ectopic pregnancy, 8 years ago, Alison Hooper has decided to help the EPT.

Read more about Alison’s reasons for wanting to help the charity that helped her.

“I suffered an ectopic pregnancy 8 years ago in 2002 when I was 23. It ended with emergency surgery after my right tube ruptured and after weeks in and out of hospital with doctors not really knowing what to do with me and with conflicting opinions. I found it increasingly difficult to understand my situation and what it all meant when even the professionals around me couldn’t give me a straight answer. After months of struggling to come to terms with what had happened and not being able to talk about it, I found the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust forum. Talking to other women who had similar stories helped me to get over the guilt and grief I felt…and whilst even 8 years later I wouldn’t say I’m ‘over it’, I truly don’t think I would’ve recovered as well as I have without the support of the EPT. This is my way of giving something back to everyone who played a part in helping me through a difficult & sad part of my life and also in remembrance of what I lost.”
