This Wasn’t Supposed to Happen
The possibility of an unplanned pregnancy can bring with it an overwhelming personal crisis full of concerns about your future. If you’re enrolled in a university or high school, you have unique concerns as a student. Let Central Texas LifeCare help you get answers and find hope. We care about you and want to help you work through the situation, so you can make a decision that’s right for you.
The first and most important thing you can do is determine if you’re really pregnant. Even if you’ve taken a home test, it may not be accurate. Central Texas LifeCare offers free pregnancy tests that are medical quality and more accurate than most home tests. The trained staff at the Pregnancy Center can help you confirm your pregnancy before you make any decisions.
If you have a positive pregnancy test Central Texas LifeCare, you may be eligible for a free limited ultrasound at our center. Having an ultrasound will tell you how far along you are and whether your pregnancy is viable (healthy). This information will help you learn more about your pregnancy and the options available so you can make an informed decision.
Thinking About Abortion?
Every year, our center sees women from high school and college campuses who are considering abortion as a solution to an unplanned pregnancy. Talk with one of our client peer counselors who can answer your questions about abortion procedures and risks.
Many Pregnancies End in Miscarriage
Even if you have a positive pregnancy test and are considering abortion, you should know that many early pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. An ultrasound will help determine if your pregnancy is viable (healthy) or if you’re going to miscarry naturally, avoiding the need for an abortion. All of our ultrasound scans are reviewed by a medical doctor.
As you make decisions regarding your pregnancy, we understand you have questions:
- How will I get medical care?
- How will I finish school?
- What will my parents say?
- Will I lose my scholarship?
- What will happen to me?
- Can I provide for a child?
