A woman who had never had sexual intercourse before and was not sure she was pregnant is getting the advice of a GP to give it a go.
In this episode of the podcast, Dr Rachel O’Neill, of the Royal Victoria Infirmary, talks about her new advice to her patients.
The latest news and events from Northern Ireland:Theresa May has said she wants Northern Ireland to be a ‘safe haven’ for people who want to escape the conflict in the north.
She said the UK would be ‘the first nation to recognise that people who have been through so much and are still traumatised, traumatised by conflict in their own communities and by the state of Northern Ireland, must be safe here, and we should be welcoming those who want a safe haven’.
She said: ‘It’s absolutely right to say we welcome people from all walks of life, but for the people who are not able to make that journey, the people in Northern Ireland who have a different set of circumstances, who are still experiencing trauma, who may be dealing with the consequences of that trauma and who have not had the opportunity to have that conversation with a counsellor, that it is absolutely right for us to welcome them to come here and come back, and to be able to talk to them and to have them understand that they are welcome here, to be safe and to help them through this time of crisis, which is the most difficult time in our history.’
She added: ‘Northern Ireland is a safe-haven for people, who have suffered so much, who don’t have the means or the choice to seek medical help elsewhere.’
Dr O’Nell told Radio Ulster’s Morning Ireland programme: ‘You’re talking about people who may not even be able at this point to access a GP.
So if they can get a referral from a doctor, it’s a very simple process and it’s easy to get.’
Dr Rachel O.
Nell is a clinical social worker who specialises in trauma for children.
She is also the director of trauma and psychosocial services at the Royal Victorian Infirmaries, which has a capacity of more than 2,500 patients.
Dr Ollen, who is also a psychiatrist, said she knew of cases where women who had had sex before were still able to have children and that some of the most vulnerable people in society would be vulnerable to the dangers of sex.
She said if you’re not ready to have sex at this stage, you’re very unlikely to get the support you need.
‘If you’re having sex and you’re getting pregnant, it means you’re a good candidate for adoption.’
If they are not ready for adoption, that is when you need to have the counselling and help to support that, to have your child come home.’
It’s a complicated process, but you need the support of a social worker and a counselling service.
You need the right resources to go through this process.’
Dr Nick Smith, of Royal Victoria, said that because Northern Ireland has been a safe havens for people since the end of the Troubles, there were many more cases of people wanting to have a child than before.
He said:’In some ways, that’s probably due to the fact that the majority of people have had the support and support of their family and they’ve got support from the police.’
But you’ve also got the fact of the fact, especially in the Northern Ireland context, that people are more willing to seek counselling, which means that it’s less likely that people will have abortions and there’s less chance that they will have a miscarriage.’
Dr Smith added that there was no reason to think that Northern Ireland would become a safe refuge for people living in Northern Europe.’
There’s no reason why we should become a refuge for refugees and asylum seekers.
It is absolutely the case that refugees and migrants who are in Europe are fleeing from persecution, violence and economic hardship, which they would have faced had they come to Northern Ireland.’
