You Have Time
There is time to consider all of the possibilities for your unexpected pregnancy. We know that you’re probably feeling overwhelmed, anxious and afraid, and we want to offer you tangible, no-cost and confidential resources to help you think through your decision. Don’t worry, there is hope, and there are people who truly care for you and the circumstances you’re currently facing.
Keeping the child can seem like a daunting decision to make if a pregnancy wasn’t part of your plan. However, there are resources that are available to help you through your journey. At Birthline, we offer a variety of counselling services as well as material assistance to help you step into the parenting journey with total confidence.
Another possibility for you is to offer your child for adoption. Many women feel as though this would be an impossible decision to make, either because of the way adoptions were conducted many years ago or because it would just be too difficult to part with their child. However, adoption allows something beautiful, like the gift of a child to a family who desperately wants one, to come from a hard situation.
If you are considering abortion for your unexpected pregnancy, take some time to go through our decision-making checklist. It’s something we put together to ensure you’ve taken every necessary step prior to an abortion and will help you as you make your final decision.
No matter what you’re considering for your unexpected pregnancy, Birthline is here to support you with no-cost and confidential services like counselling that you can make an appointment for today.
