We have some tips for how you might navigate your current situation.

Do Not Panic

If you are feeling scared about the possibility of being pregnant, do your best to try and remain calm. Pause and take a deep breath. Remember that many women and couples find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy; you are not alone. There are many resources available to help you through this.

Confirm That You Are Really Pregnant

While you may have missed your period, which is a common sign of being pregnant, it is not always the case. You will want to confirm your pregnancy. Our Blue Blossom Pregnancy Centers offer accurate free lab-quality pregnancy tests to any woman who needs one. If we confirm that you are pregnant, we also provide free ultrasounds to determine the gestational age of your baby. You can contact us at (713) 395-1330 to find a location open near you.

Be Informed About Your Options

Not sure whether you’re ready to be a parent? You have a few different pregnancy options you can consider. Each one has its own pros and cons, so you need to research them all in order to make the fully informed decision you deserve.

Parenting – Parenting is the most common choice, but if you aren’t in a stable life situation, it can be difficult. While motherhood comes with many responsibilities and struggles, it is also filled with joy. Children are a blessing and deserve love and care. There are many resources available to help financially, emotionally, and spiritually. Please call us at (713) 395-1330, and we would be happy to provide you with help and community resources.

Adoption – Many agencies work with birth mothers to provide care and living expenses during your pregnancy. You can also determine what type of adoption you would like to have whether it’s closed, semi-open, or open, and you can even choose from a variety of families for your baby. Modern adoption can be tailored to your exact needs and wishes, and you can even change your mind after birth to parent the child if you’d like. Adoption is a loving option which allows for the best future for both you and your baby while also blessing a couple wishing to be parents.

Abortion – Many women rush into thinking abortion is their only option because they feel alone and unable to provide for this child. Most people aren’t aware of what happens during an abortion or that there are several different types of abortion depending on how far along the pregnancy is. You should be fully informed about what happens in an abortion. All abortions involve either poisoning or starving a baby to death (chemical abortion), suctioning a baby apart with a vacuum (D&C abortion), using forceps to tear a baby apart (D&E abortion), or forcing a baby into cardiac arrest (induction abortion). Abortion is a permanent decision for a temporary problem. We can provide you with real solutions for the challenges you are facing. Call us at (713) 395-1330 to learn more.
