If you need someone to talk to, our national network is available for you 24/7. We're here to listen to your story and concerns at no cost. The service is confidential, compassionate and non-judgmental, offering options, accurate information and connection to a support service local to you.


Sometimes, when life doesn't go according to plan, pregnancy and the surrounding problems can seem overwhelming and unbearable. Getting through these problems might seem impossible or daunting. This is not unusual. So recognising this and asking for help is an important first step. We're here to listen, make a connection and be there for you in your time of need.

“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 Pregnancy Help Consultant. Once you're on the call, you can talk about what's on your mind – no matter how overwhelming, we are here to listen.

Pregnancy Help Consultants 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 Pregnancy Help Consultant 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 alone. If you're struggling to hold on to hope, or feeling overwhelmed, please remember we are here for you.
