Here at PPO, we offer options counselling services.
Planned Parenthood Ottawa offers free, pro-choice, all-options pregnancy counselling that provides the information and support you need to make your own decision. All-options includes parenting, adoption, and abortion – based on whichever options you need to explore.
At Planned Parenthood Ottawa, we believe that you have the right to receive accurate, unbiased information about all of your options so you can make confident and well-informed decisions. You can talk to us about any concerns and questions in our safe, supportive space – you will not be judged. We also offer post-decision and post-abortion support for clients looking to explore thoughts and feelings surrounding their choice. You are not alone.
Our services are completely confidential. We ask for a first name (which may be false) and a contact number so we can reach you if your appointment changes. We can provide:
- Over-the-phone Information and referrals from 10 AM – 5 PM, Monday – Friday
- In-person Options counselling appointments from 6 PM – 7 PM, Monday – Friday*
*Walk-ins can sometimes be accommodated between 12 PM – 5 PM, but it is best to call ahead and make an appointment to ensure that a counselor is onsite.

‘Can I bring someone to my appointment?’
You may choose to have a support person (e.g. partner, friend, parent, etc.) accompany you to the appointment. The counsellor will ask to meet you alone for the beginning of the session to make sure you have a chance to express your own views before asking if you would like to invite the support person into the discussion.
