Your health and wellbeing shouldn’t be overlooked.
Even in the stress of being 21 and pregnant and not knowing what to do next, setting up a doctors appointment is a good place to start.
Checking your vitals and the progress of the pregnancy is important to ensuring that you are well-informed about what’s going on in your body and have all the facts to help you decided what to do next.
Though it can be a stressful time, be sure to take care of yourself and always be informed about your health.

Family & Friends
Family and friends can be a great source of support and encouragement during an unplanned pregnancy. From having someone to drive you to appointments, to get advice, or to have a listening ear to confide in, it’s helpful to have a support system during pregnancy.
You do not have to go through this alone.
If reaching out to family or friends is not an option for you, that’s okay. There are still other resources out there and people willing to help you get through this.
Pregnancy and Women's Centers
If you’re 21 and pregnant and don’t know where to turn, find a local pregnancy or women’s center.
