Contact a helpline in Canada to get support for an unexpected pregnancy.

Unplanned pregnancies are more common than you may think. Being responsible for what happens next can feel overwhelming and isolating. If you're struggling with the following, there are 3 hotlines in Canada you can contact for support.

  • Feeling anxious about how your body and health will be affected depending on your choice.
  • Feeling unsure about the options that are available to you.
  • Feeling both positive and negative emotions at the thought of going through with the pregnancy.
  • Feeling overwhelmed by all the options and having to make a decision.
  • Feeling low and depressed.
  • Feeling scared that your partner or your parents will reject you when they find out.
  • Concerned about raising the baby as a single mother.
  • Worried about how going through with the pregnancy will affect your future vision.

Not every woman will respond to an unplanned pregnancy in the same way. Some women may feel devastated, while others may feel indifferent, and others feel happy – or a combination of all three. There's no shame in feeling the way you do, whatever that looks like.

If you don't know what options are available to you, or if you're not sure what option is best, a helpline counselor in Canada can guide and support you. A helpline counselor will listen to you without any judgment and will never guilt or manipulate you into choosing something you don't really want.
