Adoption may be an option to explore as you consider "what next." Adoption is not giving up your child. It is giving to your child the life that you truly want for him or her. If you decide you are not able to provide the kind of life you want for your baby or that it just isn't the right time in your life to be a parent, you can still provide for your baby. My Choice Clinic can help you explore adoption as a positive option for you. We are not an adoption agency but we can offer solid information about adoption and refer you to an agency of your choosing.
News of an unplanned pregnancy can put you in panic mode. You need time to calm down and consider all options. Informed decisions are better decisions.
Deciding to parent is a daunting challenge. We can help you be prepared by providing you with a list of local obstetricians to meet your pregnancy medical needs.
We can refer you to a parenting center which can arm you with parenting classes on growth and development, caring for your newborn and many other subjects as well as allow you to earn "Mommy bucks" to purchase baby clothes & diapers. Our client advocates are equipped with many other resources which can help you parent well.
Consider your OPTIONS
If you are considering abortion, please contact us before you make a final choice. Though we do not refer for or perform abortions, we can help you sort through your questions and concerns. My Choice Clinic will provide a pregnancy test and an ultrasound at no cost to you so that you are armed with accurate information about your pregnancy before you decide. The ultrasound will provide you with the age of the fetus which is crucial information in determining which options are available for your pregnancy. It will tell you if you have a viable pregnancy (a living fetus), by detecting the heart rate. The ultrasound will also determine if the pregnancy is inside the uterus. If you are experiencing an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, a life threatening condition in which the fetus is developing outside of the uterus, abortion procedures will not be effective.
Making a good decision requires educating yourself on all abortion procedures. You can make an informed decision if you know what to expect from the procedures and understand the risks. We can help you do that.
Abortion may, at first, seem like the best decision when facing an unplanned pregnancy, but there is a lot to consider before visiting an abortion clinic. You can make an informed decision only when you know correct information about your pregnancy, what to expect from the abortion procedures and understand the risks involved. My Choice Clinic client advocates will walk along side you as you decide.
