What Are Your Options?

Finding out you are pregnant can be difficult and overwhelming. Fear, uncertainty, confusion and anger are just some of the feelings you may be experiencing.

 

While you may be thinking that you don’t have a choice, YOU DO HAVE OPTIONS!

 

You owe it to yourself to be fully informed about all three pregnancy options before you make this important decision.  Abiding Hope can help you learn more about your options and support you as you decide what is best for you.

Parenting

Choosing to continue your pregnancy and to parent may feel overwhelming at first.  

 

The good news is that there are a lot of resources designed to specifically help you.

SUPPORT

 

At Abiding Hope we are ready to connect you with resources such as:

  • Prenatal Medicaid

  • Community resources – Child care assistance, Pregnancy Care Management

  • Ob/Gyn Physicians

  • Childbirth and Infant care classes

 

Many women and men find the help they need to make this choice a positive one.  Call Abiding Hope to discuss if parenting is the right choice for you.

Adoption

Placing your child for adoption may not be your first thought if you are facing an unplanned pregnancy.

 

However, you may be pleased to know you have lots of choices with adoption. Will it be open, semi-open or closed? Will it be private or will you use an agency?

 

An adoption plan may be the right choice for you if you are not ready to parent and do not want an abortion.

 

In today’s adoptions, you can select the family for your child, you can know your child and be a part of your child’s life. With any type of adoption, you can have the peace of knowing  your choice has given your child a future.

 

Research has shown that pregnant teens and women who make an adoption plan are more likely to finish schooling, have better jobs and overall report a high level of satisfaction with their decision for adoption.

Each year thousands of women in America make this choice.

 

Call Abiding Hope to discuss if adoption is the right choice for you.

Abortion

If you’re thinking about having an abortion, it is important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure. What type will you have? What are the risks? You deserve to know the facts.

 

You owe it to yourself to make an informed decision.

 

You are not alone. If you’re considering abortion, you need to know:

 

Are you pregnant?

Call/Text us to schedule an appointment for a FREE pregnancy test.

 

How far along are you?

Knowing for sure how far along you are is necessary to determine what abortion procedures you are eligible for.

Is your pregnancy viable?

Approximately 20% of verified pregnancies will end in miscarriage during the first trimester.

 

Before an abortion, knowing whether your pregnancy is even likely to be carried to term (viable) is vital. Your body has its own natural mechanism for taking care of a nonviable pregnancy, avoiding an unnecessary and costly procedure.

 

 

FREE, limited OB ultrasounds are available.

Maybe you’re thinking:

  • The father is insisting on an abortion

  • I’m not ready to be a parent

  • I can’t tell anyone I’m pregnant
