Description:
This study aimed to examine women’s experiences of crisis pregnancy counselling using both qualitative and quantitative methods. The study group comprised women with a crisis pregnancy who either decided on abortion or were continuing the pregnancy, with either the intention of parenting the child or placing the child for foster care or adoption. The study examined women’s expectations of crisis pregnancy counselling, the extent to which their experiences corresponded with expectations, their perceptions of strengths and weaknesses of counselling and recommendations for enhanced counselling services. The study also explored the reasons why some women chose not to avail of counselling services.
