What Providers Need to Know

Engaging in your initial conversation with a pregnant individual or couple who are uncertain about their next steps can be quite challenging. To begin, we recommend discussing the available choices they have, including parenting, abortion, or adoption.

Since this is likely to be an overwhelming and emotional time for the patient, it is crucial to provide them with objective and evidence-based information about each option. By doing so, you can help relieve any tension they may be feeling. Take the time to actively listen to their concerns, address their inquiries, and offer them additional resources to aid in their decision-making process. It’s important to always remember that the final decision ultimately rests with the pregnant individual.

Furthermore, if you feel it would be beneficial, you can direct them to our organization. Our understanding and experienced counselors possess the expertise needed to effectively communicate essential information while creating an environment that is free from pressure or judgment.
