I'm pregnant

Everyone has different reactions to finding out they’re pregnant. Some people will be delighted; others will feel shocked or worried. Everybody will need some time to think and some information about what to do next.

If you are less than 24 weeks pregnant (a doctor can tell you how far along you are) there are three options available to you and you have the right to choose any one of them:

For some people, making a decision about pregnancy is easy. For others it might be difficult. However easy or hard you find the decision, it is your decision to make. The more you feel you have made your own choice, the better you will feel in the future.

If you feel it would help, you can speak to someone at a Brook service, a contraception and sexual health clinic or another young people’s service. A counsellor can listen to how you’re feeling, answer any questions you might have and give you lots of information and support to help you make a decision that feels right for you.

The most important thing is to talk to someone as soon as possible. If you talk to us, we’ll help you to come to a decision that’s right for you without judging you. You can contact Ask Brook (between 9am-3pm, Mon to Fri) by webchat or text on 07717 989023 (standard SMS rates). Ask Brook is confidential. That means we won’t tell anyone you’ve contacted us unless we think you are in really serious danger.
