Abortion or not?

A positive pregnancy test may result in many and mixed emotions. You may feel joy, uncertainty, doubt, hope and concerns all at once, or one at a time, at various times. It is not uncommon for your emotions to change from day to day.

You may not have planned to become pregnant, or perhaps you had an unexpected test result, or your life situation has changed, or you are in doubt as to what to do. At a time like this, it is quite common to have a lot of questions, but few or no clear answers. Nevertheless, you have a decision to make: whether to terminate or go through with the pregnancy.

It isn’t always easy to know what you need. Perhaps what you need is to deal with your situation here and now. Or you may need help to sort out your thoughts and feelings before making your decision. Many people who contact Amathea also need answers to specific questions or information on the different options. In such a situation, it is important that you get the help you need and someone to talk to, so you can make an informed choice that is right for you.

Our focus in our sessions is on giving you the time and opportunity to talk about whatever is important to you. This is meant to be a safe place, where you can speak openly without worries of what might be right or wrong.

Do you need someone to talk to?
At Amathea, you will meet healthcare professionals with extensive experience in counselling on abortion and miscarriage, regardless of the type or when it occurred. We are a neutral healthcare service, have a duty of confidentiality, and can help you in your situation and in making your decision. You may come alone or together with your partner or co-parent.

All of our services are free of charge. We offer sessions in Norwegian and English. We can also book interpreters for other languages. A session here lasts about an hour, and you can talk with us on video, by phone, or at one of our offices. You decide how many sessions you need, and we will schedule these together.
