Finding yourself pregnant when you haven’t planned to be can be a stressful time. You may feel worried, unsure, emotional, angry or upset.
- You might have told your family or partner and not got the reaction you had hoped for.
- You may not have spoken to anyone about it at all.
- You may not know what you are going to do, or you may have your mind made up.
Sometimes it can be more difficult to talk to those closest to you.
Talking to a counsellor can help.
Please note: Cura counsellors don’t provide contact details for abortion clinics, or information on abortion services. However you are free to discuss abortion, and we are here to support you without pressure, direction or judgement.
