Florida Pregnancy Counseling: What You Need To Know
In Florida, pregnancy counseling is available to any woman who needs help sorting through her pregnancy options. But what is pregnancy counseling? What questions should you ask yourself when considering your pregnancy options?
I just learned that I’m pregnant. What should I do next?
Learning that you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy can be incredibly stressful. However, you don’t have to navigate the situation alone. In Florida, pregnancy counseling is available to you.
If you are pregnant in Florida, you basically have three options: choosing to parent, electing to have an abortion or making an adoption plan for your baby. Some women are able to make a decision about their pregnancy with relative ease, while others have a much more difficult time deciding what to do. This makes sense as every situation is different. But in the end, the decision is 100% up to you. You’re the only one who truly knows what is best for both you and your baby.
What Sort of Things Factor Into My Pregnancy Decision?
There’s a variety of factors; ranging from your family situation to your personal relationships to career goals, finances, personal beliefs and more. You’ll want to think carefully about all of these factors and consider how they correspond with each of your pregnancy options. The Law Offices of Berkowitz & White PLLC, who provides Florida pregnancy counseling to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, often have women ask themselves a series of questions, like:
- How would this decision affect my family, my other children, and/or my personal relationship? How would they feel about my decision?
- What impact would this decision have on my future?
- Do I feel prepared to go through a pregnancy? Do I feel ready to raise a child?
- What beliefs do I hold about each of my pregnancy options?
- Am I feeling pressure from anyone to make a certain decision?
Who Should I Talk To About My Pregnancy Options?
This is a lot to consider; it’s a lot to take in. It’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed when considering your pregnancy options. If possible, try to talk with a friend, family member or trusted mentor about your situation. If you don’t have anyone to talk to, consider getting in contact with a licensed clinical social worker or counselor who can provide you with Florida pregnancy counseling.
Remember, ethical pregnancy counselors, who are truly objective and have your best interest in mind, will never pressure you to make one decision over another. This choice is completely up to you.
