I'm Too Young to Have a Baby

Im-Too-Young-to-Have-a-Baby

Finding out you are pregnant can be overwhelming at any time. But if you are young, seeing a positive pregnancy test can be especially difficult. When you see that positive result, you might start thinking of all the plans you had made. Maybe you wanted to finish up high school and go to college. Or maybe you have just landed your dream job and were planning to work for a while before settling down. And then there is the big, immediate question:

What do I do now?

Before you let your mind go down a rabbit hole with all of these questions, know that you can do this. Whatever dreams or hopes you have -- you can still have them.

What are some of the first steps you should consider now?

Time is on your side, and you can take as much time as you need to figure out your situation. Slow down. Take deep breaths. Take the time to process all the emotions you are feeling. It is okay to feel what you are feeling, because this can be a lot to handle. Your emotions are valid!

Once you have given yourself some time to process things, it can be extremely helpful to schedule an appointment to have your pregnancy confirmed by a medical-grade pregnancy test. Birth Choice provides these tests for free, and we can also offer you an ultrasound, many times on the day of your first appointment, and other times a week or two from when you first come in. An ultrasound is so helpful, because it will provide you with information on how far along you are and will determine the viability of your pregnancy.

Birth Choice can also help connect you to countless resources you may need. Remember all those goals you had? We can help make sure you achieve them!

Is there ever a perfect age and time to have a baby?

There is no single right answer to that question. But know that you are not alone in your situation. You may feel isolated, but there are people who will support you and help you every step of the way.

Contact Birth Choice to get in touch with one of our client advocates. Our advocates can help you navigate this vulnerable time and give you the resources you deserve and need. Call us today to schedule your appointment at 214-631-2402.

All appointments with Birth Choice are completely confidential. If you are in an extremely sensitive situation, we can help you.
