    If you’re pregnant and are either considering an abortion or you are having difficulty making a decision about what to do, we are here to help.  We can provide impartial advice and support.

    This number is available 7am-8pm everyday. You can make the call yourself or someone else can make the call on your behalf.

    • You will be asked for some routine information including your name and address and your GP details (if you have one). You will then be given a telephone or face to face appointment to discuss your options.

    If you are having difficulty reaching a decision we can give you accurate information about how many weeks pregnant you are and your options.

    • If you are under 18 years old you will need to identify a supporting adult (someone who is over 18) to support you during the abortion process. If you don’t have someone to ask, do not delay in making an appointment. Staff will help you plan your abortion.
