• While the majority of women will not need to talk to a counsellor in order to make a decision regarding unplanned pregnancy, some women find this support helpful.

    It is important to be aware that around Australia, some pregnancy counselling services advertise as all-options when they are in fact run on an anti-abortion bias. More information on this issue is available here.

    For a woman considering an abortion, speaking to an anti-choice counsellor can be very distressing. If you're looking for a genuine all-options pregnancy counselling service, see the list below. If you'd like any more info on this issue please contact us.

    If you or the woman you're supporting has already decided to proceed with an abortion and does not want counselling, no requirement is in place in most states of Australia for pre-abortion counselling.

     

    Abortion clinics in Queensland are listed here, or please click here for a list of clinics interstate.

    Please note that in Queensland, no doctor's referral is necessary to make an appointment for a termination, with the exception of the Cairns Day Surgery. Outside Queensland, requirements for doctors' referrals vary state by state; please call an abortion provider in your state for more info.

     

    Genuine all-options pregnancy counselling services

    The following genuine pregnancy counselling services will provide full information on all three possible options that follow an unplanned pregnancy – abortion, adoption or parenting. They will then work with the woman's own values to drive her own decision.

    Please check with individual service for exact nature of service available and hours of operation.
