If you have confirmed that you or your partner is pregnant, there are three basic choices:
1. Continue the pregnancy and become a parent.
2. Continue the pregnancy and arrange for an adoption, either within your family or through an agency.
3. End the pregnancy by having an abortion
Ideally, both individuals responsible for the pregnancy are able to support each other and share in the decision-making. Ultimately, however, it is up to the woman to make the choice that feels best for her. Different choices fit for different people at different times in their lives. Everybody is unique.
It is important to be aware of all the options available, so that you are able to make an informed choice. We offer pregnancy options counselling appointments, in which one of our nurses or doctors will review all the options with you (and a partner, if desired). She will ask guided questions to help you clarify your thoughts and feelings and will inform you of resources that are available to support you in whatever choice you make. She will answer any questions you have and help connect you with the appropriate people as you move forward with your choice.
Our nurses and doctors will not put any pressure on you to make a particular choice. They are simply a source of knowledge and emotional support, and are here to help you make the choice that feels best to you.
