Unplanned pregnancy

Are you pregnant and it was unintentional?

You may be confused and worried if you think you are pregnant, and even more so if this is confirmed.    You may feel you face a situation that has no easy answers.  Although you may feel under pressure to make a decision quickly, it’s helpful to give yourself time. Whether you feel it or not, you do have a choice.  Don’t rush your decision, take time to talk it all through.

Family Support Centre provides the opportunity to do so.  Our trained advisors can, if you wish, check whether you are pregnant with an immediate result.  They can help you consider those things that make pregnancy a difficult thing for you at this time.  If you are considering abortion they will help you understand what’s involved.

What do I need to think about as I make a decision?

Perhaps you are worried about losing your job, or your partner or your freedom.  Maybe you feel too young or will have to give up education or that you won’t be able to cope.  You may not feel ready for the responsibility of becoming a parent.

If you have money problems, benefits may be available.  Visit the Benefits website or contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau. 

With such concerns you may feel abortion is the only solution.  If you do not fully understand what abortion involves we can provide information. To make a fully informed decision we can give you the opportunity to look at all the options and possible outcomes and you will have our support whatever your decision.

A phone call to our helpline 0121 744 8838 is all it takes to enquire.

What about adoption as an option?
