For some, pregnancy is an exciting time, but it brings feelings of uncertainty or anxiety for others. Regardless of how you feel about pregnancy, that fact of pregnancy means there is life growing within you.
If you become pregnant unexpectedly you may be uncertain about your options.. If you’re considering terminating your pregnancy, it is wise to examine other options before proceeding. There are alternatives to abortion that can preserve the life of your pre-born baby.
An unplanned pregnancy can be stressful, especially if you don’t feel ready to have a child. You might have a lot of questions about your options and the next steps. Open Arms Real Choices Clinic is here to offer support for expectant parents.
An easy way to screen for pregnancy is to take a pregnancy test. If you live in the Coeur d’Alene area, Open Arms can offer a lab-quality pregnancy test at no cost to you.
If you have ever experienced an abortion, or played a role in influencing the decision, you may feel alone. You may feel stuck in the memory of your abortion, trying to cope with the emotional trauma and feelings of guilt that often accompany the decision.
