Your unplanned pregnancy might have you afraid and unprepared with the necessary information you need to make an informed decision. Many women do not have the proper information when they are dealing with an unplanned pregnancy and start considering abortion as an option, causing you to keep all of your emotions to yourself, because you may not want anyone else to know that you’re pregnant and thinking about abortion. Bottling up your emotions and feelings can have you start withdrawing from your friends and family in fear of judgment. You might think that you’re all alone on this journey, and that can be a pretty dark place for anyone. It is okay to want to keep this pregnancy a secret, but there are trained professionals who can work with you to help you so you do not have to worry about anyone finding out what options you are considering what your final decision will be.
“Women who are facing an accidental pregnancy and trying to decide if abortion is their best option, do NOT have to walk this path alone.”
Let this be encouraging for you to hear— Women who are facing an accidental pregnancy and trying to decide if abortion is their best option, do NOT have to walk this path alone.
When you’re making a decision about abortion, you need to remember a few simple things:
- Give yourself time: You might feel like you just need to get this taken care of and quickly— however, it’s best to allow yourself the time to make the best decision for you and your situation. Don’t settle for low-quality care by going to a clinic that pressures you into a decision so they can hurry to the next patient. You as a patient deserve better than that no matter how desperate you feel.
- Recognize that you need a no-pressure environment: You need a safe place where you can discuss your options for your unplanned pregnancy with people you can trust, who will not try to make a decision for you. Sometimes, well-meaning friends and family can make you feel uncomfortable when they have a strong opinion on the matter. Finding an accredited medical clinic will give you the confidence in knowing that the quality of care you are receiving is judgment-free and held to the highest level of patient care.
- Don’t pay for anything you don’t need to: According to Web MD, did you know that up to half of all pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage? Did you know that there are exams that can evaluate if you are at risk for a possible miscarriage? There’s no need to pay for a procedure that you may not even need if your body is preparing for a miscarriage. There are women’s health centers in your area you can go to that will check on this for you without charging for these services.
