You can get help for an unplanned pregnancy or distress relating to a pregnancy from a helpline in Japan.

Unplanned pregnancies or uncertainties about pregnancy 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 Japan you can contact for support.

  • Being concerned about whether you'd make a good parent.
  • Feeling anxious about how your body and health will be affected depending on your choice.
  • Worried about how your studies or work will be affected if you go through with the pregnancy.
  • Being concerned about how you may be treated by healthcare staff.
  • Being unsure of how to tell your partner or your family, or whether you should.
  • Anger directed toward yourself or your partner for the pregnancy.
  • Experiencing a sense of urgency, like you need to make a decision as soon as possible.
  • Being concerned about how your choice may impact your mental health.

Right now, you might be feeling devastation, indifference, happiness, or a mix of all three.There is no right or wrong way to respond to an unplanned pregnancy. Every woman will experience it differently according to her unique situation.

Finding out you're pregnant when it wasn't planned or if you're having doubts about certain aspects 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 Japan to offer a listening ear and zero-judgment support, no matter where you are in your decision-making process.
