What should I do if I want an abortion?

If you’re pregnant and considering an abortion we are here to help and can give you advice and support.


  • Please call Unity Central Booking Line on 03458725435
  • The staff will ask you for your name and address and your GP details (if you have one). They will make an appointment for you to have either 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.

If you’re pregnant and considering abortion, you are not alone. 1 in 3 UK women will have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old.

What should I do if I’m not sure?

If you are having difficulty reaching a decision, it is often useful to talk it over with people you can trust and having accurate information can help.
You may wish to talk to family and friends – or it might be easier to talk to someone who is not so close to you.

Often it is best to book an appointment to find out how many weeks pregnant you are, get some accurate information about abortion and pregnancy and talk about your options with health professionals.

Staff at Unity Pregnancy Advisory Service hope to be able to help you resolve any conflicting emotions and reach the right decision for you. We recognise that this may take some time. If you do decide to end the pregnancy you will be given another appointment on a different date for an abortion.
