Am I Pregnant?

Maybe your period is a couple days late. Or, maybe you took a home pregnancy test and it’s positive. What do you do now? The first step is to take a lab-quality pregnancy test to confirm your pregnancy.The Advocacy Center offers these tests free of charge. It only takes a few minutes to get the results. If you are pregnant, our counselors are here to answer any questions.

What Do I Do If  I'm Pregnant?

We understand that an unplanned pregnancy can create many different emotions and a lot of things to consider. Deciding between parenting, adoption and abortion can feel overwhelming. Our counselors are here to provide the emotional support you need as you sort through what this means for you.

What Are My Next Steps?

Your counselor will help you process and understand your next steps related to parenting, adoption and abortion.

Parenting means carrying the pregnancy to term, then raising your child. We can talk through your questions and feelings about this possibility. If you want more information and support we can help connect you with programs and community resources that help young women who are parenting.

Adoption means carrying the pregnancy to term, then choosing another family to care for and raise your child. There are different types of adoption and you can choose who the adoptive parents will be and remain in contact with the child, if you want to. A counselor can answer questions and provide you with adoption information. We can also provide referrals to community adoption agencies. The Advocacy Center has no formal affiliations with any adoption agencies or programs.

Abortion means terminating the pregnancy. There are several types of abortion procedures. If you are thinking about abortion your counselor can help you process your thoughts and feelings about this decision and what it might mean for you. Abortion is a medical procedure.  The Advocacy Center does not perform abortions or refer to abortion providers.

How Can The Advocacy Center Help?

In addition to the services offered at The Advocacy Center, we also work to connect women with other community resources. We can provide you with referrals to doctors and clinics. We can also connect you with parenting resources. We understand it takes all of us working together to ensure you get the support you need right now and in the long term.
