Pregnancy Options

The moment you receive a positive pregnancy test result, you may be overcome with a tidal wave of emotions. Pregnancy is a life-altering event that can evoke feelings of excitement, joy, and uncertainty, or in the case of unwanted pregnancy, fear, panic, and even despair. Regardless of whether your pregnancy is planned or not, you do not have to go it alone—help is available every step of the way. Read on to learn more about pregnancy options available to you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Counseling

Once you find out you’re pregnant, you are faced with the important question of what to do next. It can be helpful to seek support from a third party. Pregnancy centers can connect you to a licensed social worker who can listen without judgment or bias, and ask thoughtful, open-ended questions to support you as you consider your next steps.

Adoption

A woman may decide that the best option for her and her child is to entrust care to an adoptive family. This is a highly personal and difficult decision. Support personnel within an adoption program can guide you through the adoption process. There are several types of adoption to choose from based on the desired level of contact with the adoptive family and your child.

Closed Adoption

  • No contact between you and the adoptive family

  • All matters are handled through a third party

  • Adoption records are sealed

Open Adoption

  • Full contact with the adoptive family

  • Contact information exchanged

  • Mutually agreed-upon terms for meeting

Semi-open Adoption

  • Some exchange of information

  • In-person meetings are usually arranged by a third party

  • Option to become fully open if both parties agree

Parenting Support

Should you choose to keep your child, plenty of resources exist to support you throughout your pregnancy and prepare you for parenting. There are classes to teach parenting skills and programs to obtain pregnancy and baby supplies. Pregnancy centers can also assist you in accessing prenatal care.

If you are faced with an unwanted pregnancy, Christian Family Services can help.

5 Misconceptions About Choosing Adoption For
Your Child

If you recently had a positive pregnancy test but do not view parenting as a viable path for you, adoption may be one of the pregnancy options you consider. Many myths exist that have contributed to a skewed understanding of how adoption works. Having complete and accurate information will help you to decide if adoption is the best choice for you and your child. Here is the truth behind five common misconceptions:

1. Adoption Is Selfish

A woman may choose adoption for a variety of reasons, but her decision is rooted in the understanding that she is unable to provide the kind of life her baby needs. To admit this and put her baby’s needs first is one of the most humbling and selfless acts a birth mother can do. In addition, a birth mother is still tasked with caring for her baby throughout pregnancy—consulting with pregnancy centers, keeping up with prenatal care, and making healthy lifestyle choices.

2. I Can’t Change My Mind Once I Initiate the Adoption Process

The adoption process includes many steps. You can reevaluate your decision at any point up until the adoption is deemed final as determined by state law.

 

3. My Child Will Feel Unloved or Rejected

When adoptive parents share an honest and compassionate narrative about birth families, adopted children can appreciate that they were given out of love by one family and chosen with love by another family.

 

4. I Will Not Be Able to See My Child Again

An open adoption plan allows you and the adoptive family to decide on a level of contact with which you’re both comfortable.

 

5. I Will Regret My Decision

Any life-changing decision comes with the risk of regret. Confiding in your adoption counselor can offer reassurance that you are making the best decision for you and your child.

If you are facing an unwanted pregnancy and are contemplating adoption, Christian Family Services can help. Reach out anytime. Our team will be there to offer support and guide you on your journey.

Using Adoption as a Pregnancy Option

An unplanned pregnancy can bring stress, fear and confusion. For many, being at a loss of what to do can cause uncertainty and a rush to make decisions that have long-term consequences. There are pregnancy options for those who are looking for them, and placing a child up for adoption is one of them. Though it can be a tough choice to make, it can also be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling if you are dealing with an unwanted pregnancy.

Realize the Benefits of the Adoption Process

If you’ve gotten a positive result on a pregnancy test, you may be looking for a way to deal with the changes that are coming. If you don’t want the baby, you can use adoption to give your child a future and give another family or individual a small miracle. These are the benefits of choosing adoption at the end of your pregnancy.

Know the Types of Adoption

You can control the adoption process by choosing the specific type of adoption you want. The differences will determine how much contract or involvement you may have in the future with the child you give birth to. A closed adoption takes away the contact between you and the adoptive family. A third party controls the entire process, and the records are sealed by the court. This allows a birth mother to remain anonymous.

With open adoption, contact is allowed with the child and the adoptive family. Typically, the parties meet before the birth, and contact information is exchanged. In a semi-open adoption, limited information is exchanged and some contact is allowed.

Get Guidance Through Pregnancy Options

Pregnancy centers are a source of guidance and help when deciding what to do about unplanned pregnancies, prenatal care and adoptions. Christian Family Services is the place to find caring pregnancy support. Reach out today to find out more.

What To Expect When You're Unexpectedly Expecting

For women who are unsure about their readiness or desire to be a mother, a positive pregnancy test can be terrifying. Though you have a new constant companion in your growing baby, you may have never felt more alone. If you’re faced with an unwanted pregnancy, know that support is available as you explore pregnancy options and make life-altering decisions.

Talk Through Your Options

Choosing to become a parent or to place your child for adoption is an extremely personal decision, one that only you can make. It can be helpful, though, to consider your options with the support of a neutral, non-judgmental professional such as a social worker, who can guide you through your fears, reservations and uncertainties.

If you are experiencing homelessness, addiction or domestic abuse, a social worker can connect you with resources to provide support for your unique circumstances. A listening ear and a helping hand can go a long way in empowering you to decide your next steps.

Expectant mothers who are unsure about their ability to care for a child can receive the support they need to build confidence and improve their circumstances. Family service organizations can assist with:

Common Worries Surrounding an Unplanned Pregnancy

Every woman’s pregnancy journey is different, but an unwanted pregnancy often incites feelings of fear and doubt. Learn about commonly cited worries and how to address them so you can make the best decision about pregnancy options.

Financial Insecurities

You may wonder how you will afford all the expenses that come with raising a child, especially if you currently struggle with financial stability. Pregnancy centers can connect you with critical resources, including:

  • Health insurance

  • Prenatal care

  • Housing assistance

  • Food and clothing

  • Diapers and other baby supplies

Parenting Skills

If you lacked a positive parental role model growing up, you might question your ability to be a good parent. Or perhaps you lack confidence and knowledge about how to care for a child. No matter the source of your doubts, many pregnancy centers offer parenting support programs that aim to prepare you for parenthood. These programs typically provide parenting skills classes, transportation assistance for pregnancy-related needs and essential prenatal, postnatal and newborn care supplies. You’ll also be connected with a social worker for one-on-one support.

Emotional Readiness

There is no clear-cut way to determine your readiness to be a parent. It’s a complex and life-changing decision that only you can make. After personal reflection and careful consideration, you may opt to place your baby for adoption.

Different types of adoption are available and vary based on the level of contact you wish to have with the adoptive family and your child. A trusted, licensed agency can walk you through the steps of the adoption process.

If you have just received a positive pregnancy test result, you may be uncertain about your next steps. Though decisions regarding your pregnancy are entirely up to you, help is available to guide you through the process. Christian Family Services offers maternity counseling and related programs to explore pregnancy options. Contact us today to get the support you need.

Are There Pregnancy Options Besides Abortion?

With legal complications making it difficult for many to access an abortion for an unwanted pregnancy, stress and anxiety are on the rise for those finding themselves pregnant. Out of all the pregnancy options available across the nation, abortion was commonly chosen due to its affordability and relative simplicity when compared to carrying a baby full-term and trying to find an adoption placement center. However, pregnancy centers offer an alternative to those who are expecting, particularity through wellness and healthcare services, as well as adoption assistance.

Access To Prenatal Care

Arguments in favor of abortion often include a lack of access to prenatal care for both mother and fetus, but with the resources and counseling provided by Christian Family Services, hope and help are on the way. While the emotional roller coaster of discovering your pregnancy won’t go away overnight, you don’t have to worry about facing this journey alone or without the care you need. From the moment your pregnancy test registers the major change taking place in your body, you have an ally.

Help With the Adoption Process

If you’ve decided that keeping the baby isn’t right for you, adoption can help. There are three types of adoptions available, each offering the birth mother a different level of involvement with the child once placement occurs.

  • Closed adoption- no contact at all and court records are sealed

  • Open adoption- full contact is possible although the extent is determined between the adoptive family and birth parent

  • Semi-open adoptions- some communication and identifying information is typically exchanged  through a third-party

Choosing to keep your baby or letting go through abortion or adoption is always going to be a difficult decision, but it’s not one that you must make alone. Let our counselors and the rest of the team at Christian Family Services lend the support you need and stand beside you through the journey. Schedule a visit today to see what pregnancy options are available.

Questions That Come To Mind With a Positive Pregnancy Test

Finding out that you’re pregnant can be an upsetting moment, particularly if it is an unwanted pregnancy. It’s essential to avoid making any rush decision in the emotions of the moment because regardless of how you feel or think others will handle the news, there are pregnancy options that everyone can be comfortable with. Here are some of the most common questions that might cloud your thinking if not answered accurately.

Is This Pregnancy Test Accurate?

Although home pregnancy tests claim 99% reliability, you could get a false positive. Schedule an appointment with an OB/GYN to confirm the news of your pregnancy, as they can do both a urine and blood test.

How Am I Supposed to Afford Prenatal Care?

Many organizations and resources are available to help expectant mothers have a safe and healthy pregnancy. Pregnancy centers are an option for affordable care, but many communities have clinics or health departments where new mothers can access necessary medical care.

How Do I Tell People I’m Pregnant?

If the situation isn’t ideal, it can be scary telling someone you are expecting. Find a trusted friend or family member who will support you to confide in. Once you gain confidence or decide what to do, this person could be with you when it’s time to let the news out.

What Happens To My Life Now?

Finding out that you’re going to be a mom could interrupt some of the plans you’ve made for your life. While some women can be flexible with their plans, others need to figure out what pregnancy options are available. Take your time thinking through this big change before making any decisions.

Supportive Help Is Available

If you’ve found out you’re pregnant, Christian Family Services can help. From information on the adoption process to resources for prenatal care, our services will help see you through your pregnancy.

3 Things To Know About Coping With an Unplanned Pregnancy

Your pregnancy test came back positive, yet you hadn’t planned or even wanted to get pregnant. After registering the initial shock, you’re left wondering what to do next.

Before making any life-changing decisions, take a deep breath and remind yourself of the following truths.

1. You Are Not Alone

Regardless of your circumstances, you do not have to face pregnancy on your own. Professional maternity counselors at Christian Family Services are here for you — to lend a nonjudgmental ear, to help you process your emotions, to connect you with pregnancy centers for prenatal care and to guide you through the next steps.

Whether you choose to parent or place your baby for adoption, you’ll receive support every step of the way. You are not alone.

2. You Have Options

Multiple paths exist for navigating an unwanted pregnancy. Consider all possible pregnancy options. Imagine what it would be like to care for your child and what it would be like to go through the adoption process.

Avoid discounting an option out of fear, doubt or anticipated regret. If you’re contemplating raising your child, for example, but are concerned about money or question your parenting abilities, don’t automatically assume you won’t be able to properly care for your child. Parenting support programs help individuals develop crucial parenting skills and connect to affordable solutions for child-related expenses.

3. You Can Decide What’s Best For You and Your Baby

While it’s beneficial to discuss pregnancy options with a compassionate and qualified professional, which option you choose is entirely up to you. No one can force you into a decision.

Christian Family Services is dedicated to providing support for women facing unexpected pregnancies. Contact us to learn more about your pregnancy options. You’ll be connected with a caring professional to help you make the best decision for you and your baby.

  • Parenting skills education

  • Housing and financial assistance

Participating in a parenting support program also connects you with other parents-to-be, creating an invaluable support network that extends beyond the program.

Choosing Adoption as One of Your Pregnancy Options

Have you recently taken a pregnancy test and found out that you are pregnant? Maybe it is an unwanted pregnancy or you are simply not sure what to do. Perhaps you have considered the different pregnancy options and wondered about the benefits of adoption. Learn more about what is involved and how it could be the right choice for you.

The Benefits of Adoption Among Pregnancy Options

Adoption allows you to place your child with a family of your choosing. You can meet with the prospective parents beforehand to see how you feel about them and decide what kind of life you would like to give your child.

Types of Adoption You Can Choose From

There are different types of adoptions you can choose from when going over your pregnancy options. By working with pregnancy centers, you can be referred to an agency and decide what is best for your life and your needs.

A closed adoption means you won't meet the adoptive parents and your child won't know anything about you. For those that want privacy, this is an option. A semi-open adoption means you can exchange letters and know each other on a first-name basis. If your relationship with the adoptive parents becomes more comfortable, you could move it to open adoption, if both parties desire.

How a Pregnancy Center Can Help You

If you find yourself pregnant, going to a pregnancy center is beneficial. You can find out how to get prenatal care, make a decision for yourself and your baby, and learn more about the adoption process and what it entails.

If you are in need of help with your pregnancy, let Christian Family Services assist you with different pregnancy options. We can work with you to create a plan that will benefit you and your child, ensuring the best outcome for both. Contact us today and see how we can help.

Navigating Your Pregnancy Options

Finding out you’re pregnant can bring a flood of emotions. The initial moments after the results of a pregnancy test could bring disbelief or overwhelming fear. You may find yourself feeling hopeless or uneasy. Don’t ever feel judged for your reaction to your pregnancy.  If you aren’t quite ready to be a parent, don’t panic. There are several pregnancy options available to you.

Pregnancy Options and Services

Everyone needs support during their pregnancy, whether it’s counseling or therapy over decisions that need to be made or getting important medical services. Pregnancy centers provide these services and more, without judgment or criticism. These organizations are a safe place to deal with the news that you’re pregnant.

Unwanted Pregnancy Support

For those who aren’t comfortable becoming a parent, adoption is a way to give your child a new life. This is a hard decision that gifts your child a positive future, and one that you can help control. Choosing the adoption process depends on how much involvement you wish to have with your child in the future. There are three options when choosing adoption.

1. Open Adoption

If you want to have contact with your child and the adoptive family, you can choose an open adoption. Typically, you meet the family before the birth, exchange important contact information and arrange for allowable contact (visits, phone calls or invitations to important milestones).

2. Closed Adoption

In these adoptions, there is no contact between the adoptive family and the birth mother. A third party arranges the entire process, and the court seals the adoption records.

3. Semi-Open Adoption

This form of adoption is a compromise that allows some exchange of information for basic contact. As the parties become more comfortable with one another, these change to an open adoption.

Finding Guidance Through Your Pregnancy Options

With Christian Family Services, you don’t have to work through an unwanted pregnancy alone. An entire support team is waiting to help you understand your pregnancy options. Reach out to us today.

This can be accomplished using a quick and reliable pregnancy test, which is readily available over-the-counter at most pharmacies. A local pregnancy center may also be a good option for some women who want to take a test because it can provide more resources and assistance.

 

Adoption as an Option

Making the next move can be especially challenging for women who are dealing with an unintended pregnancy. You might want to think about adopting a child, and Christian Family Services can help you with that. In addition to offering counseling and support as you make this challenging choice, this may involve putting you in touch with caring and responsible adoptive family.
