Phone Support - 1300 139 313 (8am - 10pm AEST)

An unplanned or challenging pregnancy can seem overwhelming, but you don't need to feel alone. Our trained helpline support workers will listen without judgement and provide a safe space to discuss your needs, worries or concerns. We will work with you to explore options for support, equipping and empowering you to navigate your best way forward.

We recognise that women have the right to make their own decisions about the outcome of their pregnancies, free from judgement or fear. We are ready to listen and support women and their partners in making informed and thoughtful decisions.

If you need someone to talk to, our national network is available for you (7 days a week, 8am - 10pm AEST). 

“I remember dialling the number and the voice I heard was the beautiful, soft, voice of an angel….welcoming, accepting and calming. She listened and spoke of all the things I was desperate to hear. The woman on the end of the line has literally been my saviour, my lifeline. When I built up the courage the support was there.The support still continues 20 week later. I truly don’t know how well I would have travelled through this journey to this date without my angel (you know who you are)!” - Jayd

When you dial 1300 139 313, your call will be answered by the first available Support Worker. Once you're on the call, you can talk about what's on your mind – no matter how overwhelming, we are here to listen.

Helpline Support Workers are trained to listen deeply and impartially to what is happening for you, without passing judgement. They will support you to understand your own reactions. Depending on your needs, they will work with you to support your safety. Your Support Worker will also work with you to help you to identify any next steps you might decide to take after the call.

At PHA, we believe that no one should face pregnancy, especially an unexpected pregnancy or crisis surrounding pregnancy alone. If you're struggling to hold on to hope, or feeling overwhelmed, we are here for you.
