How to Handle an Unplanned Pregnancy

An unplanned pregnancy may be one of the hardest and most uncertain times a woman can go through. The panic, the anxiety, the thought of something that can change your life can have you rushing to make a decision. It would be perfectly understandable if you went into denial for a while, pretending that nothing was happening, but that probably isn’t the wisest path to take. This is one of those times when, after you take a few minutes to just breathe, to clear your head, you will have questions that need to be answered. There are some steps you can take to gain a measure of peace and give you the confidence to make the right decision for you.

Who Can You Talk To?

At Pregnancy Care Clinic, we know you have questions and you need straight answers. We also understand that some of your questions will center around relationships like your parents, your partner or boyfriend, and your friends. How do you tell them this news? What is your next step? These are normal questions to have. Our caring staff offers a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can talk through your fears and ask all your questions. We are committed to providing unbiased information, and the space to make informed and thoughtful decisions.

Come For Free Testing

Sure, you took an at-home pregnancy test, and that’s why you’re here. Home tests can give false positives, and do so more often than you would think, for a variety of reasons. Come see us and get a free pregnancy test to make sure. If the test comes back positive, the next step is to have an ultrasound done. We also offer this to you free of charge. The reason this is so important is it will confirm if the pregnancy is viable or if it is ectopic, a dangerous situation that requires medical treatment. It will also tell you how far along in the pregnancy you are. Up to 25 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage [1] and of those, 80 percent happen during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. If you are considering abortion, we do not want you to pay for and have a procedure you may not need, and an ultrasound can help avoid that situation.

Find Out All the Facts

It’s easy to get started. Make an appointment at Pregnancy Care Clinic and let us help you through this time in your life. We will go over all the test results with you, answer all your questions, and make sure you have all the facts and data you need to make an informed choice for your future. We know that clear, unbiased information given at no charge, and with no agenda, is vital to women making the best possible choice for their future. It helps bring a measure of peace and much-needed confidence that no matter which direction you choose, you will be able to handle it. _______________________________________________________________________ Pregnancy and Miscarriage.
