Some options after a positive test
Who can I talk to about my options while pregnant?
You can talk to a counsellor about your pregnancy options to help you decide what to do (this is called “pre-decision counselling”). There are a number of services that provide free counselling and support.
Your doctor or local Family Planning Clinic can refer you to a trusted counselling service. An experienced counsellor will explain your options and help you explore your feelings with each option.
Can my parents, or someone else, pressure me into an option?
No, the decision must be made by you. No one else has the right to pressure you into any of the options (not even your parents, partner, or ex). Contact your nearest Community Law Centre if someone is pressuring you into a decision.
Health professionals are also there to help – they can explain the options and the pros and cons associated with each option in relation to your medical history but cannot make the decision for you.
