Going through the pregnancy.
You may not have planned to be pregnant, but sometime women decide to see it through and work to make the best out of a tough situation.
If you decided to stay pregnant, there are lot of free services and local organizations ready to help women in your situation get the care they need.
From prenatal care to free counseling and practical guidance, local pregnancy shelters, women’s centers, and health clinics may be able to help provide you the services and information you need moving forward. Get support from these organization or confide in friends and family to help you navigate these decisions.
If you decide to stay pregnant, you still have more options to consider: Would you want to raise the baby yourself? Are you interested in adoption? It is not uncommon for women who don’t want to be pregnant to consider adoption as an alternative.
From working with local child services, non-profits, or other adoption agencies that facilitate private adoptions, there are lots of people out there trained and willing to help in such situations. If you don’t know where to find these resources, contact us at White Rose Women’s Center. We’d be happy to help you find resources and organizations in your area.
For many women who are pregnant and don’t want to be, abortion may seem like the only option. It may be what others around you – friends, family, a significant other – want you to do. Ultimately the decision is yours alone.
If abortion is something you are considering to terminate the pregnancy, make sure you are well informed about your rights and other health factors involved in such procedures.
