Get support for an unexpected pregnancy from a helpline in Australia.

If your pregnancy was unplanned, you may be considering what to do next. Falling pregnant unexpectedly is quite common but it can be experienced in different ways by different women. If you're battling with any of the following, help is available from one of 9 hotlines in Australia.

  • Feeling alone, like you have nobody to turn to for advice or support.
  • Feeling anxious about how your body and health will be affected depending on your choice.
  • A fear of being judged if you try to talk about the pregnancy and your options.
  • Being concerned about whether you'd make a good parent.
  • Strong feelings of guilt and shame about wanting to end the pregnancy.
  • Feeling regret like you made a big mistake.
  • Experiencing a sense of urgency, like you need to make a decision as soon as possible.
  • Worried about how and whether you could raise a baby with the father.

You may have mixed emotions about your pregnancy, or your emotions may be very clear to you. Every woman's experience is unique and there's no right or wrong way to feel. Your choice is personal and it's a hundred percent yours.

Finding out you're pregnant when it wasn't planned can put you in a difficult position. If you're not ready to tell anyone about it, you may feel alone. However, helpine counselors and volunteers are available in Australia to offer a listening ear and zero-judgment support, no matter where you are in your decision-making process.
