Consider Your Options

Consider Your Options

If you have an unplanned pregnancy, you’re not alone. Sorting through your feelings and options can be overwhelming. It can create a lot of questions with no easy answers. Our staff will help you sort through this process. They are trained and equipped to support you during this time, listening to you and helping you understand your options. Many of them have been in similar situations. 

Alternatives Pregnancy Center cares about you. That is why we believe it is important to present you with all the facts so that you can make an informed decision. 

If you have a positive pregnancy test, you have three options:

Abortion
If you're considering abortion, you deserve to know the facts.  It is important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure. You need to know the types and the risks involved.  Alternatives can help you sort through your questions and provide you with information to make an informed decision.

You need to know:

Adoption
You might consider adoption if:
  • You aren't ready to be a parent
  • You want to provide your child with a 2-parent family
  • You want to provide your child with emotional and financial stability
In today’s open adoption, it is possible to know your child and be a part of your child’s life. You can have the peace of knowing your child is loved and cared for by the couple you choose.

Alternatives can help you understand these options, and connect you to an adoption agency or attorney.

Parenting
You may have questions about parenting or the thought of becoming a parent seems impossible to you at this time. We've talked to many clients who are concerned about things like these:
  • I'm scared to tell my family.
  • How will I care for a baby?
  • How will I finish school?
  • How will I continue working?
We can discuss these issues so you can decide if parenting is the right option for you. We will support you during your pregnancy, until your baby is 6 months old, through our Caring Connection Program and by connecting you to other agencies.
