“Pregnant but don’t want a baby.” If this is what you googled to bring you to this page, we understand the difficult situation you’re facing. Your world is rocked. You didn’t plan to get pregnant. Maybe you’ll want a baby sometime – or maybe not – but for whatever reason, this is not the time or the circumstance. Perhaps you’re in school or just starting out in a career. Perhaps you’re not in a good financial place or secure relationship. Maybe you just don’t feel you’re ready. What should you do?
Avenue Women’s Center has served women in Chicagoland for over thirty-six years as they navigate through an unplanned pregnancy. The first assistance we offer is a free, medical-grade pregnancy test, accurate just ten days after the possible time of conception. If a positive result confirms the pregnancy, we are able to provide additional services, many at no cost to you. We also offer our commitment to walk this path with you, whatever course you decide to pursue. Contact us today.
People may try to tell you what you should do. What they think you should do. It’s not unlikely you have friends and family members who will give you advice, some of it contradictory. It’s possible you’re going back and forth yourself, thinking first one thing and then another about your decision.
Maybe in the past you’ve had strong feelings about what someone else should do in this position, but now you’re in it and it’s more difficult than you had imagined. “What if” and real life are two different things. We understand that. There’s more to consider here than you might have envisioned.
If you’re pregnant but don’t want a baby, the journey ahead may not be an easy one, but you needn’t make it alone. Every woman’s situation is unique; at the same time, the need for respect and understanding are universal.
So, if you’re pregnant and don’t want a baby, what can you do?
The first step is to receive more information about your pregnancy. Has your pregnancy been confirmed with an accurate pregnancy test or ultrasound? How far along are you?
The second step is to receive more information about your options. Have you done any research on abortion? Do you know the cost, types of procedures, and potential risks or side effects?
At Avenue Women’s Center, in a private, no-obligation pregnancy consultation, an experienced client advocate will provide you with a free pregnancy test and accurate abortion information in a caring environment. With a listening ear and without judgment, she will hear what you have to say, what you think, what you fear. She will give you complete and honest information about all of your options, and she will accompany you as you process all that’s before you. All our services are strictly confidential.
We hope you will allow us to serve you in your unique situation. Pregnant but don’t want the baby, but not alone. Please contact us today by phone, text, email or chat, for an appointment at one of our five conveniently located offices in Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn / Lombard, Naperville, West Chicago, and Wood Dale, Illinois. We’re here for you.
