The Helpline is a vital support for women who are struggling with an unplanned pregnancy. Most of the women calling us are reluctantly considering an abortion. For many this is due to their circumstances. For others it’s because of pressure from their partner, family or others.
We offer these women space to talk through their situation, their fears and their options. Our aim is to empower women to make their own fully informed decisions about pregnancy – decisions they will not come to regret.
Many of the women contacting the Helpline are asking for help with abortion regret (some had their abortion in the previous few days, others decades earlier). Often it is significantly affecting their mental health but they haven’t felt able to talk about it with anyone. We offer these women a safe place to express their pain and find longer term support if they want it.
