ANEW’s position on the Eighth Amendment:

ANEW provides counselling, accommodation and support services to vulnerable women dealing with crisis pregnancy and to new mothers and their babies, the organisation also offers post-termination counselling. These services are at all times provided on a non-directive and non-judgemental basis. Furthermore, it is the policy of ANEW that clients are referred to an approved HSE general medical practitioner (GP) if any information is sought in relation to a possible termination of their pregnancy. As a result the organisation does not have a formal position in relation to the upcoming referendum on the Eighth Amendment and supports the right of its individual clients to take their own position.

          ANEW’s Counsellors:

          All of our Counsellors have relevant and approved accreditation from and are registered members of the appropriate governing body including the following:

          • Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
          • The Association of Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists
          • Health and Social Care Professionals Council

“This is a brilliant service! In my experience Anew has provided huge support to women in crisis with an unplanned pregnancy and post pregnancy. It offers a warm, welcoming environment both to service user and health care professional. It is extremely flexible and accessible in its approach, consistently placing the service user at the centre of its work. It provides practical and emotional support to allow women to confidently enjoy their pregnancy and early motherhood. Personally, it has been a pleasure to see women and their babies benefit and thrive from their contact with Anew.”
