Unplanned Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time of growth, change, and self-understanding. In order to have a healthy pregnancy, it is essential to understand proper nutrition, the importance of doctor's visits and checkups, and being emotionally ready for what's in the future. You'll find ample information within these pages that can help to guide you through the coming months.

For those who are experiencing a planned pregnancy, you'll spend the next few months planning for your child's arrival. You'll research pregnancy body and mood changes, prepare the baby's nursery, pick a name, and begin your life as a happy family.

While the end decision you make may be emotionally painful, you can still heal and begin moving forward with hope.
