Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be a disorienting experience. Suddenly, you are flooded with a lot of questions and concerns about how this will impact your current life and future plans. You may not be sure of the next step, and that’s okay. Here are a few tips to get your bearings and empower yourself during an unexpected pregnancy:
1. Get the facts. Confirm your pregnancy with a medical verification, and have an ultrasound to determine how far along you are, and that the pregnancy is viable. These services are provided at no cost at the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta, and administered by highly trained medical professionals.
2. Consider all your options. Before rushing into a decision, take a step back and look at all of your pregnancy options: abortion, parenting, and adoption. The choice is yours to make, so its important to give yourself the time and space you need to make a choice you can feel good about today and in the future.
3. Talk with someone you trust. The father of the baby, a parent, or a close friend may play a role in your pregnancy decision. Don’t shy away from talking with the people closest to you, who will support your unconditionally. At the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta, you’ll have the opportunity to talk with a medical professional and a trained Patient Care Advocate about your options, as well as all the resources available to you. We offer confidential, non-biased support and many community referrals.
Remember, you don’t have to face an unplanned pregnancy alone. Call or text the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta today to take the first step in empowering yourself and make a choice you can feel confident about.
