When you find yourself pregnant and are unsure of what to do you have three options.
You can choose to:
- Continue with the pregnancy
- End the pregnancy by having an abortion
- Continue with the pregnancy and consider adoption.
The Pregnancy Advisory Service is based at Hope House in Gloucester Royal Hospital and offers support for women throughout the county who have become pregnant and are unsure of what to do.
We offer confidential, non-judgemental, non-directive support and operate on a first come first served basis. To attend one of our clinics you can be referred by any professional e.g. your doctor, health visitor, teacher, school nurse or you can refer yourself using this document.
If you choose to refer yourself you can fill the form out and send to us via email, by telephone or in person at Hope House.
There are no time pressures from us to make your decision, we would encourage you to ask for a referral to pregnancy advisory as soon as possible to give you maximum time to make your decision with support.
