Pregnancy Counselling

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The IFPA provides confidential and non-directive pregnancy counselling services for women and their partners who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy or a pregnancy which has become a crisis. This service is free and operated by professional and accredited counsellors and psychotherapists at twelve locations nationwide.

At the IFPA we know that an unplanned pregnancy or a pregnancy which has become a crisis can cause a range of feelings and emotions. Sometimes it can also bring up other issues and concerns. Talking can help you to make sense of mixed or confused feelings.

During a counselling session our counsellors will listen to you and help you explore and work through these issues. They will also give you accurate, honest and clear information about all your pregnancy options – abortion, parenting and adoption. IFPA counsellors will support a woman's own choice in all cases.*

Our pregnancy counselling service includes:

  • Confidential and non-directive pregnancy counselling
  • Information on abortion and how to access abortion services in other states
  • Information on adoption and parenting support services
  • Information on pre-natal results and options
  • Ongoing counselling including post-abortion counselling
