Pregnancies that are unplanned or have doubts attached to them happen almost as often as planned pregnancies. So while you may feel alone, what you're experiencing is quite common. If you relate to any of the following and you're not sure what to do next, contact one of 2 hotlines in South Africa:

  • Feeling concerned about your financial situation if you go through with the pregnancy.
  • Being unsure of how to tell your partner or your family, or whether you should.
  • Feeling low and depressed.
  • Being reluctant to change your lifestyle to accommodate a baby.
  • Feeling overwhelmed by all the options and having to make a decision.
  • Feeling unprepared to go through with the pregnancy and to raise a baby.
  • 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.

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.

Helpline staff in South Africa will provide you with accurate information about your options. You can take comfort in knowing that your concerns will be received with compassion and zero-judgement. Nobody will force you into making a choice that is not your own. Support is available before, during and after the decision-making process.
