The Fear that Comes with Pregnancy
Finding out you’re pregnant can take you from a place of security and confidence to a place of insecurity and fear in a moment’s time. No matter what decision you make—parenting, abortion, or adoption—your life has changed forever with the conception of your child. There are no easy options in front of you, that much is clear. But where do you go from here?
First of all, rest assured that you are not alone. There are many women who have found themselves in a situation just like yours. There are women who have been in your shoes who would love to walk alongside you during this uncertain time.
Second, although it may not seem like it, you have options available to you. One of those options is to allow us at Greensboro Pregnancy Care Center to offer support, truth, and love. So stop, take a deep breath, and consider these 4 Steps to Success that can and will lead you to optimal health outcomes for, not only your pregnancy, but also your life.
Your Steps to Success
1. Make an Appointment
Come see us! We offer free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STD testing, educational appointments, resources, and more. If you’re unsure what to do, this is a great place to start. Confirm your pregnancy, find out how far along you are, and discuss your options in detail with a trained advocate who cares about you. Ask questions of our medical staff to get fully informed and empowered to make a healthy choice. You can make an appointment by clicking here.
2. Make a Healthy Choice
At the Care Center, we want to see you make a healthy choice. Based on research and experience, we believe that choosing life for your baby and avoiding sexual risk (rather than simply reducing your risk) are the best and only healthy choices. We’re here to provide you will everything you need in order to make a fully informed decision about your pregnancy and sexual lifestyle.
3. Equip Yourself
Your advocate will assist you in getting connected with the community resources you need in order to be prepared. We also provide an ongoing Pregnancy & Parenting Class, Life Skills classes (everything from creating and managing your budget to healthy eating habits), and opportunities to receive baby clothing and equipment. All these opportunities are free to you and your partner.
4. Be Mentored
We believe this is the ultimate goal of your experience with the Care Center. All people are meant to have deep relationships. It’s how we grow daily and also how we can face the inevitable valleys of life with the confidence that we are not alone. We offer you the opportunity to be connected to a mentor in a local church through our Titus 2 Mentorship Program. By plugging in to a local church, you can receive the ongoing accountability, discipleship, and support on a personal level that will strengthen you holistically.
Take the First Step
These “Steps to Success” won’t magically make all your difficulties go away, but they are practical ways to eliminate barriers that may be causing you fear as you face your unplanned pregnancy.
