Discovering that you are pregnant is one of the most life changing revelations a woman can experience. While excitement is an emotion often tied to this discovery, it is okay to experience feelings of anxiety or stress. No matter the decision made, a woman’s life will never be the same. It is wise, during this time, to process your decision with someone you trust. At Heartline, we have trained Advocates who are able to provide you with a caring and compassionate atmosphere and the information needed to make an educated decision.
The choice to parent can be difficult when the pregnancy is unplanned. It may feel like a child would interrupt your education, potential promotions, or just create too much of a monetary strain on your family. While this decision is a big one, we want you to know that you’re not alone in it. Heartline offers parenting classes to walk you through every stage of your child’s life until age five, and offers BABE Coupons as monetary compensation to help pay for essentials like diapers and wipes.
Adoption is one of the bravest decisions a woman can make. The decision to carry your child for nine months and then place them in the care of another family takes strength and courage, but in some cases it is the wisest decision for both parent and child. We can process with you what the different types of adoption look like (open adoption, semi-open adoption, and closed adoption) and connect you with an adoption agency in our area if this is the route you choose.
Sometimes it might feel like abortion is the only logical option when you are facing an unplanned pregnancy. Heartline wants you to know that it is not. We are able to provide you with abortion education, and process with you what the medical procedure involves as well as looking at potential physical risks and Post Abortion Stress. While we do not perform or refer for abortions, Heartline’s goal is to equip you with the information you need to make an educated decision.
