I’m Pregnant?! Now What?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on November 22, 2014

If you’ve just found out you’re pregnant, this may be one of the most confusing and stressful times in your life. You might feel as if your life is spiraling out of control, and you’re unsure about what you should do now that you’re pregnant.

More than likely an unplanned pregnancy was not the plan you imagined for your life—not now anyways. Maybe you thought you’d never find yourself in this position—considering abortion or adoption. But now that it’s you and your body, your future and your decision, you may be left searching for answers and feeling alone.

Some of your questions needing answers might include “What do I do now? This is going to ruin my plans for the future”, “Should I put my child up for adoption?” or “Who can I turn to for help?” Know that you’re not alone right now. Lifetime has peer counselors that you can speak to over the phone; women who have made an adoption plan in the past for their child. And, we also have staff working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, here to answer your questions. You can call Lifetime Adoption at 1-800-923-6784. Or, if you’re not quite ready to talk on the phone yet about your situation, you can chat live on our website too:
