If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you may be thinking about abortion. Abortion is a serious medical procedure, so it is important to understand the types of procedures, the potential risks, and what to expect before moving forward. The process of abortion is the medical termination of a pregnancy. The type and cost of abortion depend on the gestational age of your pregnancy, which is determined through an initial ultrasound scan.
Set up a no-cost medical consultation with us today to learn more about your pregnancy and receive an ultrasound. We are here to help you by providing the information you need to make a fully-informed decision.
Motherhood doesn’t look the same for everyone and that’s ok. Adoption is one way. You may like the idea of being a mom, but are struggling with life circumstances and are not capable of handling the day-to-day responsibilities. In that case, adoption may be the best option for you.
Adoption has been an available option for an unplanned pregnancy for a very long time. Today, when a woman chooses adoption for her child, she controls the entire process. With others’ assistance, a birth mom (and birth father, if he is available) makes all the decisions. She chooses who the adoptive parents will be, what type of adoption she is comfortable with, and even the environment she wants her child to grow up in. The birth mom pays none of the costs of the adoption. The adopting family pays all legal fees and medical bills required.
