Counseling and Support for Unplanned Pregnancy
When you find yourself facing an unplanned pregnancy, you may not know where to turn for help and support. It can be incredibly overwhelming and scary to be faced with the big decisions regarding what to do next. Adoption Choices Colorado provides counseling services free of charge to anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy
It is normal to feel terrified and unsure in the event of an unplanned pregnancy. Trying to sort through your emotions and make choices that are best for you can be incredibly hard to do alone. Our trained counselors will work with you to help you understand, and sort through what you’re thinking and feeling and make practical choices regarding the next steps to take. Our counselors understand how important a support network is to helping you make the decision that is truly best for you. Getting counseling and support for your unplanned pregnancy is a crucial step you can take right now to take care of yourself during this unprecedented time.
Adoption Choices Colorado provides free counseling to anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy, as well as any birth fathers or close friends and family who are supporting you in this process. Our counselors are specifically trained to provide support and counseling for those navigating an unplanned pregnancy. You do not have to have decided on adoption yet to use our services.
Counseling is highly individualized to your needs. However, in general, our counselors will offer a safe space for you to talk through all your thoughts and feelings around your unplanned pregnancy. It can be both frightening and isolating to be facing this unexpected life change, and it can be deeply reassuring to be able to talk about it with someone who is offering care and support rather than judgment or their own fear.
Your counselor can also help you talk through the pros and cons of different choices and what your desires are going forward. We support all birth mothers in choosing whatever option works best for them. Talking through this process with a trained provider, who is an expert in working with people in the same situation as you, can be really clarifying and reassuring. Our counselors are also able to give you more information about adoption specifically, the different types of plans available to you, and potential next steps. Utilizing our counselors gives you this added benefit, whereas some resources that provide counseling and support for unplanned pregnancy may not be able to provide you with the resources to understand the practicalities of choosing adoption in its many forms and will need to refer you elsewhere.
Contact us to schedule a time to talk with one of our counselors. We are providing full services right now even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic in order to support you fully during this unprecedented time. We will respond to your inquiry promptly and find a time that works for you so that you can get the support you need in this time. Counseling services are always free of charge.
We are dedicated to supporting you in every way we can throughout your unplanned pregnancy. We have been providing empathetic and empowering care to birth mothers in Colorado since 2002. Our team is committed to listening with care and compassion and to assisting you throughout this process. Sometimes it is difficult to get unbiased and unconditional support from close family and friends during this time due to their own emotional reactions. Counseling allows you to have a safe space in which to fully express how you’re feeling, without needing to worry about impact or judgment.
Similarly, our counselors are not here to try and convince you of any particular path or decision. We want to provide you with the education and resources necessary for you to make an informed decision about practical next steps in the process. If you do choose to pursue adoption with our agency, you can continue to use our free counseling services during and after this process.
