Unplanned Pregnancy Ireland: myoptions.ie provides a range of support, including continuing or terminating the pregnancy. This service is also available if you are a partner of someone who is pregnant.
Unplanned pregnancy can be overwhelming and challenging with complex decisions to be made. Understanding your options and sourcing for support and information is especially crucial to make informed decisions.
You do not have to navigate an unplanned pregnancy alone. There are several support systems for you:
- Friends and family
- Healthcare professionals
- Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA)
- Dublin Well Woman Centre
- Crisis Pregnancy Counselling services
No matter your age, it is important that you get the support you need. The counselling given depends on your age and on the counselling service’s policy.
Whether you decide to parent, choose adoption, or to terminate, remember that your healthcare provider will support you in a judgement-free environment and there are resources ready to help you through this journey.
Debunking the Myths works with a team of obstetricians and gynaecologists in running educational workshops for secondary school students in Ireland. We believe that providing resources about sexual health to adolescents will empower them to make informed decisions about their reproductive health.
