The decision whether to keep your baby, have an abortion or adopt your baby out is a big decision that will impact your life.
We would encourage you to listen to your heart, and not to rush the decision as feelings can change one week to the next.
Ultimately, you are the one that will carry the consequences of your choice, so it’s important that you make the decision for yourself and not because someone else is pressuring you. If you are being coerced or pressured let us know, so we can help.
Decisions made under pressure or stress are seldom good decisions, so take the time to be really sure about what you decide. If in doubt, leave it out!
We can help you work through each option and the benefit’s/consequences, so you can be fully informed and make a decision that you will be happy with in the years to come.
Be aware that fear of the unknown can play a big part. Our natural tendency is to run from the hard things or the unknown. Fear makes us want to stop what is happening and go back to what we know. Don’t let fear rule you! Embrace change and get the support needed to navigate it.
It is good to be informed about the stage of the baby’s development to make the right choice for you. Our friendly staff provides information and material and are happy to answer the questions you may have. We are here for you, to discuss any concerns, and assist you in sorting out your way forward.
