Pregnancy Options & Support

Confidential guidance, resources and care

What Are My Choices?

First - Are you sure you’re pregnant? Maybe you took a pregnancy test, but was it a reliable one? If you think you might be pregnant, come to Birthright where you can get a free lab quality pregnancy test. The manufacturer states that this test is 97% to 99% accurate, seven to ten days after conception. All our services are free and completely confidential.

The hardest thing about making a decision is anticipating how you will feel about that decision in the future. When you’re in a crisis, you usually cannot think far beyond the immediate situation. Often all you want is for the problem to go away. Decisions that people most often regret are those made too quickly in a crisis. These kinds of decisions are not really decisions, but instead reactions.

At Birthright, we encourage you to stop, take a deep breath and think about your choices. Often, people will feel rushed to make a decision that they haven’t taken time to explore. You owe it to yourself to get all the information you need to make an informed decision. No one else can make this decision for you but it does help to talk to people who could help you work through all your choices.

Your situation is like no other. Your circumstances are unique and cannot be decided with some general facts on a website. Contact Birthright to talk with an experienced client advocate who will assist you in exploring a plan that is right for you. You can freely ask questions and work through your thoughts without fear of judgment or condemnation.

Parent

While many women regret getting an abortion, almost no mom could imagine life without their child, once he or she is born. Being a parent is an ongoing process of learning and adjusting. Every parent stumbles from time to time, but if you love your child and are trying your best, you will be fine. Birthright will walk with you throughout this journey. We can offer you the support you need and direction for what is available in the community. We offer a free Pregnancy Education Program, tailored to your needs, that will help you get ready for the baby’s arrival. We will walk along side you with emotional and material support. We even have a Men’s Mentoring Program where male volunteers help your partner to be a support to you and your baby. You are stronger than you think you are.

Abortion

Abortion may seem like the simplest answer out of an unintended pregnancy but there are no easy answers. Maybe you don’t want to have an abortion but feel it is your only choice. Many consider having an abortion because they do not have the support or resources they need to have their baby. There might be people pressuring you to have an abortion that you don’t want. You may feel you have no choice – but you do. Birthright can help you explore the reasons you’re considering abortion and possibly offer alternative options. Any choice seems difficult right now. Would you make a different choice if your circumstances were different? Birthright can help you. Please contact us today.

Adoption

Don’t automatically write off adoption as an option. Many women will say “I could never give my baby away,” but adoption provides a family for your baby. Adoption does not look the same as it has in the past. There are many types of adoption and you as the birth mother have the option to choose an Open Adoption and to determine the details of the adoption.

While Birthright is not an adoption agency, we can offer some insight and direction for this positive choice. The birthmother in turn, is able to face her own future with courage and hope. It’s possible that adoption is much different from what you imagine. There is no obligation to consider this option and you have nothing to lose by learning more about it.

When my parents found out I was pregnant, they threw me out on the street. Birthright was there to pick me up and help me find a place to stay and materials to have my baby.
