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.

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. Your pregnancy will be full of excitement and anxiousness, love and hope.

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