You can get help for an unplanned pregnancy from a helpline in Scotland.

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:

  • Worried about how your studies or work will be affected if you go through with the pregnancy.
  • Being unsure of how to tell your partner or your family, or whether you should.
  • Feeling concerned about your financial situation if you go through with the pregnancy.
  • Concerns about your relationship and whether it'll survive if you go through with the pregnancy.
  • Feeling low and depressed.
  • Feeling concerned about whether you and your partner/the father could co-parent.
  • Feeling regret like you made a big mistake.
  • Feeling indecisive and like there is no ideal solution.

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.
