Unplanned pregnancy counselling service

Posted in Services

SHFPACT offers a free counselling service for women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.

The counselling provided is respectful, non-judgemental and non-directive and aims to provide accurate information and support for women, and their partners and/or families if needed. All options can be explored and discussed in a safe environment as needed by the individual woman.

 Referrals to termination of pregnancy services are made as needed, or as requested by the woman. Post termination counselling is also available for women who may need support following a termination. Counselling appointments are an hour long and can be a one off appointment, or more than one appointment as needed by the individual woman.

The counselling is provided by experienced sexual & reproductive health nurses who have undertaken extra training in counselling. Referral to external counsellors can be made for more complex problems or for relationship issues as needed.

Please call 02 6247 3077 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
