Every day women are faced with unplanned pregnancies (more than 40% of pregnancies worldwide are unintended). (1). An unwanted pregnancy can bring up a variety of emotions. This may be a difficult time for you. We understand that you may have many questions. Our compassionate lay counselors are trained to help explain all of your options.
Overwhelmed. Feeling pressure or like there is no other way out. If becoming a parent isn't in your plans right now, you might be considering an abortion. Your feelings and circumstances matter. Our heart is to help you gather all the facts you need to make an educated decision that will affect the rest of your life. Getting information about all your options can make what seems like a "dark tunnel" of confusion much more clear. For detailed information about abortion procedures, click here..
If we can offer you any encouragement at all, it would be that you need to make your decision based on you and your future and not based on what others expect of you or think you should do. We believe you owe it to yourself to get all the answers and facts about your unplanned pregnancy and to give yourself time to sort through this. If necessary, we can get you connected to other resources in our community to help you along the way.
