Your Options

If you have a positive pregnancy test, you have three choices to consider: Whatever choice you make is for a lifetime, so you'll want to learn all the facts for yourself to make a fully informed decision.

We've included some information about each choice below, but we would love the opportunity to talk to you and offer you caring support as you make your decision. Feel free to call us to schedule an appointment at 407.846.9101.


Parenting

Choosing to carry through with your pregnancy and to parent can be challenging. Though it is a big responsibility, it is one that can bring much joy. You may have more questions than answers about parenting or maybe the thought of becoming a parent seems impossible to you at this time. We've talked to many clients with concerns and questions like:
  • My husband or boyfriend doesn't want the baby but I do.
  • (For men...) My girlfriend doesn't want the baby but I do.
  • I can't tell my family.
  • Do I have to drop out of school?
  • How will I continue working?
  • Where will I live?
  • I don't have medical insurance.
  • How will I pay my bills?
  • I'm too young.
We provide a safe place for you to discuss all of these concerns, and we can help you work through each issue so you can decide if parenting is right for you. We can also assist you in finding the resources and support you need.


Adoption

One of the more challenging situations a woman can face is an unplanned pregnancy, especially if she is young and single. The responsibilities of being a single mom may seem overwhelming. Many women think abortion is their only way out. A woman who is not comfortable with abortion or is not ready to parent may consider adoption. Each year, more than 50,000 women in America make this choice. Adoption can be a loving option for the birth mother, baby and adoptive family.

Making an adoption plan (planning for your baby's future) is a decision that takes courage and maturity, and it involves putting the needs and best interests of the child first. Many types of adoption plans are available.

We can help you understand your options, and we can connect you with a trusted adoption specialist who can answer any questions you may have and who will walk you with you through making an adoption. We're here to support you. Contact us to discuss your options.


Abortion

If you're thinking about going to an abortion clinic, it is important to know the facts of this medical procedure before you make your decision. You owe it to yourself to make an informed choice. Click here for more information on abortion, abortion methods and risks.

Perhaps you're thinking:
  • Abortion is my only option.
  • The father of the baby is insisting on an abortion.
  • I'm not ready to be a parent.
  • I can't tell anyone I'm pregnant.
  • I can't afford a baby.
We want you to know that you don't have to face this time alone. We can help. Some of our staff have been where you are.

If you are considering abortion, here are some things to consider:

Are you really pregnant?
We provide a free laboratory-quality urine pregnancy test. We can also refer you for a blood pregnancy test if necessary, as well as perform an ultrasound to confirm if you have a viable pregnancy. In addition, we suggest that you have your pregnancy confirmed by a medical professional who does not perform abortions. We can give you a referral to a local physician if needed.

How far along are you?
We can calculate how far along you are in your pregnancy.

What are the types of abortion and are there any risks?
Our staff can sit down with you and help you understand abortion procedures and the risks associated with each type of abortion.

Again, know that you are not alone. We understand that you need a place where you can feel safe to process everything. We will provide you with the information and tools you need to make your choice.
