You’re Pregnant. Now What?

You’re Pregnant. Now What?

Finding out you’re unexpectedly pregnant can be a tremendous shock, especially for those who didn’t have plans of motherhood in their immediate future. In those instances, a positive pregnancy test can bring on a flood of emotions, ranging from anxiety, hopefulness, fear, and even panic.

Whatever you are feeling, Avail NYC with its team of experienced and compassionate client advocates is here to help you. Read on to learn more about what free pregnancy services and support we can provide as you go through this decision-making process.

You Have Choices

It’s important to remember that, no matter what, you have choices—and in most cases, you have time as well. There’s no need to rush into a decision on such an important issue.

A full-term pregnancy can last 40 weeks. This means that, whether you choose to carry your baby to term or give your baby up for adoption, you don’t need to make a decision today or even tomorrow. You have time to thoroughly think through your options so you’ll be able to make a confident decision that provides you with peace and closure.

Avail NYC is here for you while you’re considering these options and after you’ve made your decision. We have pregnancy support services if you choose to give birth. Our services are free and confidential, and our client advocates are dedicated to their work of ensuring that women have the chance to think through all the possibilities to make the best decision for their future.

At Peace with Your Decision

Making a choice on this important matter can take time, and you may find that your feelings (as well as your plans) seem to change on a day-to-day or even hour-to-hour basis. It’s okay and perfectly normal to be indecisive.

Avail NYC wants to ensure you make a decision you’re comfortable with instead of rushing into one that is heavily influenced by others. Our client advocates are here to listen, and in many cases, simply verbalizing your feelings with an advocate can help turn you toward the decision that is best for your life. These advocates are also available to talk to significant others in your life: husbands, boyfriends, and even fathers who might have an opinion about how you should proceed.

No matter how you decide to continue with your unexpected pregnancy, you’re not alone. Avail NYC cares about you and is here to support you. If you had a previous abortion and have unresolved emotions, we provide abortion support groups who can help you emotionally heal and find closure.

Free, Confidential Pregnancy Test at Avail NYC

Free, Confidential Pregnancy Test at Avail NYC

For many women, experiencing the first tell-tale signs of pregnancy, like a missed period, nausea, or breast tenderness, can be very exciting, but for others, the possibility of an unexpected pregnancy can be an emotional roller coaster. If you would prefer to take a self-administered pregnancy test with the assistance of a kind, compassionate team in a supportive environment, Avail NYC can provide the resources you need.

Free Pregnancy Tests at Avail NYC

It’s natural to be scared, worried, or anxious when confronted with an unexpected pregnancy. As amazing as motherhood can be, the prospect of having a baby is often very overwhelming, especially for those who haven’t yet planned for it–much less prepare for it. Whether you have taken a home pregnancy test or are still working to come to terms with the likelihood of pregnancy, we can help.

Most home pregnancy tests are very effective, offering accuracy of up to 99%, but even the best at-home tests can’t necessarily guarantee the security and precision you deserve. At Avail NYC, we are pleased to provide free laboratory-quality hCG pregnancy tests to our patients, boasting hormone-based results in as little as ten days after conception with a response in three to five minutes. With the ability to confirm the results of your home test or simply offer a caring lifeline throughout the testing process, our team can ensure you have access to the guidance you need.

Support for All Women

At Avail NYC, we are available to provide confidential support and guidance for New York City women of all ages and stages of life who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. We understand the challenges that go into preparing for a situation you didn’t see coming, and we are ready to help you every step of the way. With assistance that includes a linear decision-making tool and access to a client advocate who can walk you through your options, our team can provide the support you are looking for, no matter what decision you choose.

With a convenient location in the heart of Midtown, Avail NYC offers free, confidential resources in a safe, friendly environment. Contact us today to make an appointment to verify your pregnancy with a self-administered pregnancy test or to receive pregnancy-support services. No matter what you need, we are here to help.
