If you or someone you know finds themselves unexpectedly pregnant, knowing what to do next, and the choice that is right for you and your situation, can be difficult.

At Pregnancy Help Sydney, we believe having the information you need to make an informed decision is one of the simplest and most effective ways of thinking through your choices when it comes to unplanned pregnancy options.

Here, we’ve provided you with a questionnaire we’ve found very helpful for managing expectations and going through your unplanned pregnancy options. We encourage you and your family, partner or friends to work your way through these questions to aid you in deciding which option for unplanned pregnancy is best for you.

Before making any decision about your pregnancy and options you have at hand,  consider the following questions designed to help you sort through your thoughts and feelings. There are also some prompts to help you consider how each decision may affect you now and in the future.

  • How do I feel right now?

  • What do I see as the main problem?

  • What are my thoughts?

  • What are my choices?

With each choice you identify (continue with the pregnancy and parent; continue and adopt; end the pregnancy), go through each of the following questions:

  • What support is available to me in my community?

  • What support is available to me financially?

  • Who can support me emotionally?

  • How will my relationships be affected?

    • With the baby's father?​

    • With my parents?

    • With my friends?

    • My future relationships ... partner ... children?​


How will I be affected?

  • Mentally?

    • How will my thoughts be affected?​

  • Emotionally?​

    • How will my feelings be affected?​

  • Physically?​

    • How will my body be affected?​

  • Beliefs and Values?​

    • How will this affect​ my beliefs and values?

  • What will be the practical con​sequences of this decision?

    • In my work?​

    • In my finances?

    • In my future plans?

    • In my education?

  • How will I feel if I make this decision?​

    • Now?​

    • In 9 months?

    • in 2 years?

    • In 5 years?

  • How will I feel if I am unable to fall pregnant again at a later stage in my life?​

    • How will this affect my future relationships?​

  • Do I have everything I need to make an informed decision?​

If you are uncomfortable with any of your answers, you do not have to make a rushed decision.

The most important thing to remember when considering these unplanned pregnancy options and the pregnancy option that is right for you and your situation is that the choice is ultimately yours.

If you’ve been through the above information/questions and are uncertain about any of your answers, remember that there is no rush for you to make your decision. You can think it over and take as much time as needed, or call our team for confidential support and solutions.
