Pregnancies that are unplanned 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 Scotland:
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 Scotland to offer a listening ear and zero-judgment support, no matter where you are in your decision-making process.
