Season 2 Bonus Episode: The Her Story Project—Ariel’s Story

Welcome back to Pregnancy Has Entered the Chat. Today we have a different type of episode – the Her Story Project. The Her Story Project is a safe space to share stories and create solidarity among women who have walked through an unplanned pregnancy. At The Pregnancy Network, one of the most common things we hear from women is that they feel alone. But nearly half of all pregnancies are unplanned—that means no woman walking this path is truly alone. You may have chosen to parent, had an abortion, made an adoption plan, or suffered a miscarriage. No matter what you’ve been through, we want to hear—and share—your story. By sharing your story with others, you can help empower women to face their unplanned pregnancies without fear and grow toward healing.

Ariel’s Story

When Ariel first learned she was pregnant, she was filled with many emotions; excitement, fear, and nervousness. Her boyfriend; however, didn’t share her excitement and suggested that Ariel have an abortion. Understandably, Ariel was scared of losing their relationship; she didn’t know what to do or where to turn. Ariel booked an appointment at The Pregnancy Network, where she met and formed a relationship with one of our staff nurses, Lauren. With the support and knowledge of Ariel’s community at The Pregnancy Network, she was empowered to face her unplanned pregnancy without fear and welcomed a new baby girl into her life. Listen to Ariel’s story below.
