Support and advice

If you’re pregnant, you may feel a whole range of different emotions. You may know straight away about your decision, or you may need longer to decide.

Our services are here to support you in whatever decision you make or whatever help you may need.

Pregnancy choices

Our clinics offer free pregnancy testing; the only way to be sure you’re pregnant is to test.

If your period is every four weeks, do the test if you don’t start your period on time. If your cycle is longer, do a test 3 weeks after the date you think you may have become pregnant.

If you are pregnant, then it is your decision what to do. You have three options:

  • You can continue with the pregnancy and have a baby
  • You can have the baby and then have it adopted
  • You can have an abortion
