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

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 1 hotlines in Iceland:

  • Feeling alone, like you have nobody to turn to for advice or support.
  • Feeling anxious about how your body and health will be affected depending on your choice.
  • A fear of being judged if you try to talk about the pregnancy and your options.
  • Being concerned about whether you'd make a good parent.
  • Strong feelings of guilt and shame about wanting to end the pregnancy.
  • Feeling regret like you made a big mistake.
  • Experiencing a sense of urgency, like you need to make a decision as soon as possible.
  • Worried about how and whether you could raise a baby with the father.

When you experience an unplanned pregnancy, there's no "normal" way to feel or respond. Some women take the news lightly and find it easy to make a choice. Others have a really hard time accepting what's happened and deciding what to do. Whatever your feelings are, know that they are valid.

Helpline staff in Iceland 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.
