Whether it is your daughter or your son's girlfriend, the news may not be what you had planned for the future of that child. Most parents we work with are surprised, hurt, angry, concerned, and/or shocked when their child tells them that a pregnancy may have occurred.
The first thing you need to do is take a deep breathe, relax, and call MyLife Medical & Resource Centers. We are here to help everyone involved with an unplanned pregnancy. There is more than one option available and we have lots of resources to help.
Abortion may seem like a quick and easy answer, but it simply brings about many more issues to deal with. Yes, the pregnancy may be over following an abortion but there are so many new issues that may arise.
Please visit our Pregnancy Options page for a discussion about all the options to consider and how MyLife Medical & Resource Centers can help if she chooses to parent or investigate adoption.
We offer Parenting Classes to help our clients become the best parents possible and at the same time, earn "points" for items needed such as diapers, formula, new clothing, baby beds, baby swings, etc.
First, let's find out if she is pregnant and how far along she is. Contact MyLife Medical & Resource Centers to set up an appointment for a free pregnancy test and ultrasound. Once pregnancy has been verified, we can walk everyone involved through the options that are available for this pregnancy. There is more than one option. And we are here to help.
If abortion still seems the very best decision for this pregnancy, the following is a list of questions that need to be asked at the abortion clinic. It is best not to leave the first abortion clinic appointment until these questions (and any others you think of) are answered fully and completely to your satisfaction.
Remember that abortion does not erase a mistake it only adds new ones. Abortion is PERMANENT. There is no "undoing" this decision. Come into one of our offices so we can discuss all of the options available.
If she chooses abortion or has already participated in an abortion, be prepared for "Post Abortion Stress Syndrome" (PAS). One or more of the following problems could be experienced by anyone involved in that abortion decision. Men hurt from abortion decisions, too. If you see any signs of any of the following, please seek professional counseling. Do not allow these issues to begin ruling anyone's life.
If you or anyone you know is experiencing any of the above symptoms, please understand that you are not alone and help is available. Contact MyLife Medical & Resource Centers to find out more.
Having an STD during an abortion can cause serious problems for the patient. Be sure that she has been tested for STDs before the abortion. We offer free & low cost STD testing at MyLife Medical & Resource Centers. Contact us today for more information.
