NSW Health has engaged Family Planning NSW to provide the new NSW Pregnancy Choices Helpline and dedicated website. This helpline has replaced the NSW Pregnancy Options Helpline operated by healthdirect Australia.
Patients can get free and confidential information on pregnancy choices via the new helpline on 1800 008 463 between 8.00 am and 8.00 pm, Mon – Fri.
Patients can also find more information and a 24/7 live chat feature on the Pregnancy Choices website.
Health professionals can provide information and help with finding services for continuing a pregnancy, terminating a pregnancy or seeking pregnancy choices counselling.
A letter from the NSW Health Secretary on the service can be found here. It also contains information on conscientious objections.
