Information and support

Couple talking to a cousellor

It's important to know the facts about pregnancy and conception so you can take control of your reproduction rather than leaving it to chance.

Before you make any decisions about your pregnancy, make sure you know the facts about pregnancy and talk things through with someone who can listen.

For specialist advice talk to the FPA (the Family Planning Association).


Support while you are pregnant

Having the support of your partner, family and friends can be helpful, but remember that there are various professionals, such as doctors, midwives, and counsellors who can answer questions and give you the space to talk about concerns.

You can find them at:

1. Brook

If you are under 25, Brook is a sexual health charity that has a helpline and plenty of useful information on their website.

2. NCT

NCT (formerly the National Childbirth Trust) is the UK’s largest parenting charity. They support parents with information about pregnancy, birth and parenting, and they have a network that provides practical and emotional support.

3. NHS resources

The NHS Choices website has an up-to-date list of places that offer support, especially if you're a teenager.


Adoption

If you are thinking about putting your child up for adoption to another family, you can learn more from the Adoption Information Line or the Adoption Register.
