We disagree

Disagreeing on a decision to terminate or go through with a pregnancy may make it difficult to communicate with each other. Strong feelings, opinions and wishes may be involved when you are trying to communicate, which can make it difficult to listen and understand what the other person is trying to say. Understanding each other and coming to an agreement isn’t always easy.

Amathea sees many individuals, couples and partners in various situations – both when the decision has been made to terminate or go through with a pregnancy, and after an abortion. We know that many people find it helpful and reassuring to have a neutral third party participate in the conversation.

In the sessions here with us, our job is to help you talk about what is important to each of you. We never take sides and will be here to help you understand what you wish to communicate, to listen to each other, and together find the best solution for both of you. Many different reactions and emotions may arise during such a session, which is normal and something we often encounter.

Do you need someone to talk to?
At Amathea, you will meet healthcare professionals with extensive experience in counselling after an abortion. We are a 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.
