Not Sure Where to Begin?
If you are scared, confused, or overwhelmed by an unplanned pregnancy, you are not alone. We are here for you as you learn how to navigate your options. You don’t have to know all the answers.
We can help you decide what’s next for you and your partner.
First Step: Pregnancy Confirmation
If your partner confirmed her pregnancy with a home pregnancy test, it’s important to follow up with a medical-grade pregnancy test AND a limited ultrasound at LifeLine Pregnancy Center. Pregnancy confirmation will confirm the presence of an intrauterine pregnancy, estimate gestational age, and confirm cardiac activity.
Know Your Options
Your pregnancy decision will affect you from this day forward, so it’s important to consider all your options. You and your partner have three options: abortion, adoption, or parenting.
Abortion procedures come with many risks and complications. You and your partner deserve to know the facts before making your decision.
The type of adoption you choose depends on the type of communication and contact you wish to have with the child and adoptive family. Choose from open, closed, or semi-open adoption.
For some people, adoption may be a solution to an unintended pregnancy. Adoption can be a great alternative to raising a child that you may not feel prepared to raise. It can, in many cases, be the best and most loving choice.
Parenting is not easy, but it is rewarding, and it’s not impossible with a good support system. Talk with us today to learn about the free parenting support services that are available to you.
