An unplanned pregnancy can make even the most confident woman stumble for a moment. The shaky hands and panic are not far off. No matter where you are in the decision-making process, you can turn around the fear and anxiety. It’s okay to “hit pause” to get your bearings and sort out your options. It all starts with an appointment at Avail NYC.
Turning Confusion into Confidence
At Avail, we know that confusion can be the first reaction when you get this type of news. Our client advocates use reflective listening to help reduce your stress so you can get back on track and start looking ahead, able to make the best possible decision for your future.
“I felt understood and not judged. I felt that I wouldn’t be alone no matter what decision I decided to make,” shared one client.
Knowledge is Power
Understanding exactly what you face, and what all your options are, in detail, can be a powerful thing. Our advocates are here to help you from the first step to the last. Get started down the path to confidence with a free, self-administered pregnancy test to confirm the symptoms you may be having, or discuss the results of your at-home test with an Avail advocate.
Common pregnancy symptoms include: frequent urination (particularly at night), nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (also known as “morning sickness”), fatigue, headaches, food cravings or aversions, or darkening and/or sensitivity of nipples.
Once you have pregnancy test results, if they are positive, we can refer you to a third-party women’s healthcare provider for a free, on-site ultrasound to find out if your pregnancy is viable, if it is ectopic (a potentially-dangerous situation requiring medical care), and what the gestational age is. These findings add to your information arsenal, and are another step on the way to making a confident decision.
Reflection Leads to a Positive Future
Looking back, you will probably recall different times in your life when important life decisions were made—some by you, maybe some by others. When it comes to decisions surrounding an unplanned pregnancy, no one but you can make the right decision.
Others—your partner, family, and friends—may have good intentions, but at the end of the day it is your life, not theirs. The decision is yours alone and it can be daunting.
Consider your beliefs, your values, your goals, your current situation, and the resources available to you as you look at your options of abortion, adoption, and parenting. Our advocates are here to answer every question you have, and make sure you have clear, unbiased information to use in your decision-making process.
We offer same-day appointments because we know that waiting can be really hard, and we want to help you in every possible way. Get in touch today, so we can get started helping you make the best choice for you.
Avail NYC exists to be a safe haven for women and men facing an unexpected pregnancy or seeking support after an abortion. We are not a medical provider.
