Perhaps you recently took a positive test at home or are experiencing symptoms of pregnancy. How do you make a decision regarding your pregnancy? There are many factors involved with an unexpected pregnancy. If are making a pregnancy decision, here are some questions to consider:
Do you involve others in your pregnancy decision-making process?
It can be tempting to keep the news of the pregnancy to yourself. This is especially the case if this pregnancy was unplanned & unsought. As much as you’d like to figure things out on your own, it can also be helpful to share the news with trusted confidantes. Often processing the decision with others can give you a different perspective. It also helps you feel less isolated and alone.
Avenue Women’s Center provides confidential consultations with our expert client advocates. We are able to provide information & support from a third party perspective. We have assisted many women through the pregnancy decision-making process and are here to walk this journey with you. Contact us today for an appointment.
Where do you go to get information regarding your pregnancy?
In order to make an informed decision, you will need accurate information on all of your pregnancy options. In a culture where information is at our fingertips, how do you decipher where to find information that is helpful? First of all, if you decide to begin your research process online, make sure you are looking at reputable sources. Opinion-based sites or articles that are not backed by solid organizations or reputable authors should not be your focus. Although it’s nice to hear what everyone else thinks online, these types of websites will not direct you towards fact or research-based articles. Look for websites that list their sources and give you a breadth of information on the topic.
Are there other locations for information besides the internet? Where else can you get facts regarding your pregnancy options?
The answer is yes. At Avenue Women’s Center we specialize in information regarding all of your pregnancy options.
