Pregnancy and gender diversity


People who are gender diverse, sexually diverse and/or live with intersex variation(s) can experience unintended pregnancies.  Regardless of how people identify themselves or their relationships, pregnancy can still be possible.

Everyone is welcome to use our service, no matter how you identify.

You might be experiencing unintended pregnancy, requiring access to contraception, or be supporting a friend to do the same. We can help you with counselling, information, referrals and financial assistance, and you don’t need to share personal information about gonads and gametes, attraction, or gendered expression.

The content directed towards people who are pregnant on this website is classified as ‘for women’ and the material for those supporting them as ‘for men’. We acknowledge this is a heteronormative generalisation but hope that we can either directly or indirectly offer support that meets your personal needs - and we’re very open to feedback from you on how we could do this better.

To engage with our services, you can:

  • Call or email us directly. Our phone counsellors are trained in LGBTIQ+ support needs and our phone lines are open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
  • Ask a friend or family member to call us on your behalf for information or support. We can speak to them directly, or we can have a conversation with both of you via speaker phone.
  • Ask a worker from another program, agency or service to call us on your behalf for information or support.
  • Directly contact a LGBTIQ+ support service, like Diverse Voices.

Diverse Voices counselling and referral service for the LGBTIQ community.

Tel: 1800 184 527 (7 days a week, 365 days a year between the hours of 3pm – 12am Australia wide).  Phone counselling and web chat services will be provided by volunteers engaged in their home-state centres, with national support provided by a team of paid staff members, through the QLife website
