Our Services

Do you need to talk to someone who is neutral, someone who can help you to look at your choices objectively and provide confidential advice and non-judgmental support?
We also offer post-adoption counselling and support.

Free counselling:

Extensive counselling is available to birth parents facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We will help you look at all your options, making the best possible decision for yourself and your baby’s future. This service is available throughout the pregnancy and after the birth. Our help is both free and confidential, and will support you in whatever decision you make.

If you choose the adoption option, you will have a say in choosing specific parents for your baby.


If you are considering adoption as a way of building your family, you are invited to contact us for further information.

All prospective parents who wish to adopt are screened and educated by an accredited, trained adoption social worker. You will work with a social worker, who will help you to develop the insight, or understanding, necessary for a well-prepared adoptive family.

Some Health and Safety Issues to Consider Prior to an Abortion:

Before you go to an abortion clinic or visit another abortion provider, you are strongly encouraged to consider some relevant and important safety and health issues.

Confirm Your Pregnancy:

One step you should take is to be certain you are pregnant. It is possible that you are not. A R20 pregnancy test can be purchased at your nearest pharmacy or go to the local clinic. An ultrasound scan can also confirm a pregnancy and how far pregnant you are.

You can phone and chat online, or via messenger on FaceBook (LifeFirstPregancyHelp) or WhatsApp contact Lyn on 0825567447 between 8 and 5pm. You may leave a message and someone will contact you as soon as possible.

Understand the Risks of the Abortion Procedure:

All abortion procedures involve some potential risks. You have the legal right to know what type of procedure will be performed and what specific risks are associated with this procedure. This website and our trained counsellors can help you begin to understand the potential physical and psychological affects that an abortion may have upon you.

Investigate the Qualifications of the Abortion Provider:

Find out the name of the doctor who will perform your abortion procedure. Make sure that the person who will perform the abortion is a licensed physician and a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist. Also, make sure that the abortion doctor has appropriate privileges to admit you to a hospital if there are any complications.

Be very cautious to purchase “medication” or abortion pills on the street corner from a phone number on a street pole! Do not let shame, secrecy overwhelming pressures and fear drive you to desperation which could be detrimental to you as a person….

Maintain the Right to Say "No":

You can change your mind at any time, right up until the abortion has begun. Abortion is almost always an elective surgery.

You have every right to say, "I've changed my mind," while you are in the waiting room or on the table awaiting the abortion.

Saying "Stop!" is your right. Don't feel pressured into having the abortion if you've decided against it or just want time to reconsider.

If you have just had an abortion, it is really important that you take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest and follow any post-surgery instructions. Do not hesitate to seek medical help if something just doesn't "feel right."

Maybe it's been a while since your abortion but you find yourself struggling or hurting in some way. Whether you've just had an abortion or whether it's been months or years since your abortion, we are here to help you.

We offer compassionate, confidential, non-judgmental help.

We're here for you so that you can call when you feel ready to talk.

Please let us help you.

Be Informed

I’m sure you have heard or know how it feels when you meet the one! Or that’s what you think at the time. He is older than you and just sweeps you off your feet. Before you know it sex is on the agenda. Your friends are all doing it so it must be okay right? Did you know that sex is a choice? And that most sexually active girls are having sex with a guy who is at least 4 years older than them? And that they are not his first!
Most girls are only really worried about falling pregnant and don’t know that there are over 25 different sexually transmitted diseases! And you can get them even if you use a condom.
STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) are easily spread from one person to another during sex. The onset and infection of any of the below may go unnoticed until it’s too late to provide medical intervention and appropriate treatment.

Some examples include:

  • Clamydia is probably the most common and can make you sterile if left untreated
  • Genital Herpes is incurable and causes eruptions of painful blisters and ulcers on the genitals
  • HPV or Human Papilloma Virus can cause vulvar burning, itching, pain and even warts. If not treated it can lead to cancer
  • Syphilis is a bacterial infection that can be treated but if left can cause brain, nerve and cardiac problems and even death.
  • Gonorrhoea is bacterial infection and can be treated but many people have it without symptoms and left untreated it can cause infertility
  • Hepatitis B can cause severe liver damage leading to cancer, many of the children born to infected mothers develop liver cancer.
  • HIV (AIDS) - Most people infected with HIV will develop AIDS within 10 years. AIDS leads to death if not treated with Anti-retroviral (ARVs) medication for life!
