Centrecare Inc.
Centrecare’s post abortion counselling service is available to couples, women, family members and friends who have been affected by an unplanned pregnancy or post-pregnancy loss and associated grief.  The counselling takes into consideration the unique and specialised components of a woman’s age, life-stage, religious and/or cultural contexts.

A thorough working knowledge and understanding of unplanned and post-pregnancy issues is provided in this specialised counselling service. A safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment is provided in the counselling sessions where clients are able to express their needs and receive unbiased information relevant to their circumstances. 

These professional protocols enable those clients affected to determine their own decisions free from the value judgments of others. Centrecare makes interpreter services available on request for a culturally diverse clientele and meets requests for free crèche facilities. Crèche facilities are specifically for children under the age of twelve who accompany their parent/s to counselling services. Day and evening sessions are offered with immediate appointments available.
