COVID-19 update from Pregnancy Options:

'We continue to be operational during COVID-19, providing support by telephone and video. Unplanned pregnancy clients will be offered an hour session to talk through their thoughts and feelings about their pregnancy, giving space to explore all options available to them with a non-judgemental volunteer counsellor. Pregnancy loss and post abortion clients will be offered an initial assessment to talk through their experience as well as regular check ins until face to face support can resume. If clients are at risk to discuss their pregnancy or circumstances by telephone, we can offer text or email support as well as signposting to other agencies, as appropriate.

Pregnancy Options Centre is currently in the process of planning to re-open the centre for client support soon, whilst following government guidelines to protecting our staff, volunteers, and clients. Please see our website and social media pages for up to date information.'

I was so incredibly grateful that the service existed and felt immediately heard at a time when I had never felt more isolated due to shame and other negative emotions

Pregnancy Options sessions are client led and provide a safe environment for women, partners and family members to talk about their thoughts and emotions surrounding their circumstances.

Non-judgemental, specially trained volunteers give unplanned pregnancy clients the
chance to talk to someone independent and help them explore their options including
abortion, adoption or parenting.
