If you’ve just discovered you’re pregnant or you think you may be pregnant, then you’re probably thinking about your options. You may be wondering how you’ll cope with pregnancy or how you’ll afford to support yourself and your unborn child. You may be encouraged to make a quick decision on what choice you’ll make next.
When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, women often have two immediate choices. They can choose to continue the pregnancy, or not.
We encourage you to stop, take a deep breath, and take time to make an informed and responsible decision. Educate yourself about the options you have available to you and your unborn child. If you need help exploring your options, there are resources available at no cost to you.
What is an abortion?
An abortion is when a pregnancy is ended so that it does not result in the birth of a child. Sometimes this is called termination of pregnancy.
The pregnancy is ended either by surgery or by taking pills. During the first trimester it is recommended that you get a sonogram before considering the options. If you would like to schedule a sonogram, please contact our office for assistance.
