Talking to someone who isn’t emotionally involved can really help. By talking through your situation, it often clarifies what you are feeling and makes things clearer. Plus we can let you know other support agencies that might be able to help. It’s free and confidential.
Pop into one of our branches for Free Pregnancy Testing. One of our supporters can assist you with the result of the test.
The tests are around 99% accurate from the day your period would have been due.
We can then inform you of your options and supports available.More about our Pregnancy Testing
