Are you going back and forth between the options of abortion and adoption? With an unplanned pregnancy, maybe you’ve already come to the conclusion that parenting is not for you. Whether you are a single parent or married with children, be well informed about both options today.
Both abortion and adoption will affect your life in some way, so it’s essential that you learn as much as you can about each option. We understand how challenging this pregnancy decision is, and our team at Pregnancy Options Miami is here for you.
How Does Abortion Work?
Abortion is a serious medical procedure and is not as simple as you may think. Every abortion method comes with physical and emotional risks and side effects.
You may be wondering what type of abortion you qualify for. How far along you are in your pregnancy determines what type of abortion you can receive. There are two main types of abortion: medical abortion and surgical abortion.
Medical abortions are an option up until ten weeks gestation. If you are past ten weeks pregnant, a surgical abortion may be your only other abortion option. Confirm your pregnancy to know for sure.
The Process of Adoption
Maybe you have concerns like, “I’m too young to parent” or “I don’t have the finances to raise a child on my own.” You have options when it comes to adoption. You still have the chance to be a part of your child’s life if you desire to.
These days, the birth mother (and father) create the adoption plan. You get to choose the adoptive family and environment where your child grows up. Choose between an open, closed, and semi-open adoption. Each option varies based on the desired amount of contact you want with the adoptive family and your child.
First, Verify Your Pregnancy
Confirm your at-home pregnancy results with lab-quality pregnancy testing and an ultrasound. Why? Even though home pregnancy tests are very accurate, there is a chance for inaccurate results if taken at the wrong time.
Pregnancy Confirmation Services
At Pregnancy Options Miami, we offer a number of confidential pregnancy services completely free of charge to women and families facing unexpected pregnancies. With these services, we hope to help you find the answers and resources you need to make the best possible decision for you.
If you receive a positive pregnancy test at our center, the next step is a free and confidential ultrasound. Before you can choose abortion or adoption, you need to know if the pregnancy is viable (will continue to progress), how far along you are, and where the pregnancy is located.
