Her Story Project

Your Story Matters

I feel alone. This is one of the most common things we hear from women at The Pregnancy Network. But nearly half of all pregnancies are unplannedthat 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 other women to face their unplanned pregnancies without fear, or grow toward healing.

In this bonus episode of “Pregnancy Has Entered the Chat,” Chloe introduces 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.

Read a Story

“The father of the baby was someone I had dated off and on for about a year and a half, and we did not have a very healthy relationship.”

“College was a dream I never thought would be possible for me, and a baby would destroy that.”

“I had my decision set to get rid of the baby.”

“My boyfriend started to push me to get an abortion….I was scared to lose the relationship with him if I did not
get an abortion.”

“Neither one of us were financially able at the time to provide for a child.”

“I had no idea what was going to happen, if we were going to be able to have this baby.”

“I was going to have an abortion, and I wanted to get it done quickly….I went to the abortion
clinic six times.”

“I had that abortion, and I thought things would go back to normal, but they didn’t.”

“I found out I was pregnant a week after the baby’s father and I decided not to be
together anymore.”

“If you had asked me a week before I found out I was pregnant if I’d ever have an abortion, I’d have said no.”

“I didn’t have any self-worth because of what I had done.”

“I just remember laying on the table and cramping and feeling numb.”
