Men and crisis pregnancy imageAt the IFPA we know that men are also affected by crisis pregnancy and can experience a range of feelings and emotions. Sometimes a crisis pregnancy can also bring up other issues and concerns for men. Talking can help make sense of mixed or confused feelings.

The IFPA's crisis pregnancy counselling service is free and operated by professional accredited counsellors and psychotherapists at ten centres nationwide.

During a counselling session our counsellors will listen to you and help you explore and work through these issues. They are here to support you during this difficult time. They will also give you accurate, honest and clear information about pregnancy options – abortion, parenting and adoption.

While our priority is the safety and confidentiality of women attending our services, men can also receive counselling with their partner (if that is what she wants). Men are also welcome to avail of ongoing counselling on an individual basis.
