"My period is late. What should I do?"
The first thing that you need to do is a pregnancy test. When you come to have your free pregnancy test you will meet with a trained volunteer peer-counselor who will also provide you with any pregnancy related information that you might need. She will give you all the time that you need to make a decision, and can meet with you for follow-up later on.
Areas that may be discussed with your peer-counselor (only if you are comfortable):
- Abortion procedures and risks
- Fetal development
- Relationship issues
24-HOUR HOTLINE: (250) 262-1280
"What if I have already had an abortion, and I need to talk to someone about it?"
Abortion is a choice that can affect us in ways that we hadn't anticipated, and so the NPPCC offers one-on-one peer-counseling to individuals who are dealing with post –abortion stress. Please contact us for more information, or try the links under "post-abortion support"
