If you are unexpectedly pregnant, the support of a boyfriend, husband, family member, or friend can make the difference between feeling like you’re sinking and feeling like you’re swimming.
Avenue Women’s Center is a limited medical clinic that has been providing services for women facing unexpected pregnancies since 1981. You don’t have to navigate this alone. Our caring client advocates provide information and support to help you make a pregnancy decision. Call, chat, email or text for an appointment at one of our five DuPage County locations today.
Support in this case means feeling like someone has “got your back”—not in a financial or practical sense, necessarily, but in the sense of keeping you company and being on your team emotionally. It can be overwhelming to learn about your options for terminating the pregnancy, making an adoption plan, or arranging to parent. Having some to listen and say “I can help with that” makes a big difference—whether it’s calling the abortion clinic or the OBGYN’s office, looking up the WIC guidelines, or just listening. Remember that it is normal to need to communicate what you need to your family and friends.
If you don’t find the support you need from those around you, try reaching out to someone you trust such as a counselor, teacher, or mentor. Here at Avenue Women’s Center, our compassionate and trustworthy client advocates would be happy to walk alongside you and offer a caring hand to help you take your next steps. The Avenue Women’s Center staff will combine years of experience helping women who are unexpectedly pregnant with attentive listening to your particular circumstances.
If you are searching for support during an unplanned pregnancy, we hope you will reach out to Avenue Women’s Center. We want you to swim!
