Need help making a decision about an unplanned pregnancy? Reach out to a hotline in Ireland.

Unplanned pregnancies 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 7 hotlines in Ireland you can contact for support.

  • A fear of being judged if you try to talk about the pregnancy and your options.
  • Feeling indecisive and like there is no ideal solution.
  • Feeling low and depressed.
  • Anger directed toward yourself or your partner for the pregnancy.
  • Feeling concerned about whether you and your partner/the father could co-parent.
  • Feeling anxious about going through with the pregnancy and giving birth.
  • Strong feelings of guilt and shame about wanting to end the pregnancy.
  • Being unsure of how to tell your partner or your family, or whether you should.

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.

If you don't know what options are available to you, or if you're not sure what option is best, a helpline counselor in Ireland can guide and support you. A helpline counselor will listen to you without any judgment and will never guilt or manipulate you into choosing something you don't really want.
