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 Wales:
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.
With an unplanned pregnancy, you may have a lot of questions. It can be tough to know where to turn to for support, especially if you're not ready to tell anyone. A helpline volunteer in Wales will offer you confidential and compassionate support that you can trust.
