Will An Unplanned Pregnancy Ruin My Life?

Time seems to creep along slowly as you wait for the results of the pregnancy test that you just took.  When positive lines appear, your heart starts racing and your brain is filled with a million thoughts.  If you’re thinking, “I’ve ruined my life,” your first step is to get a free pregnancy test to make sure your results are accurate.

An unplanned pregnancy comes with a lot of questions. What about graduating from high school, finishing the degree I started, advancing in my new job and affording to care for this child? How on earth will this impact my love life, social life, family?

All of these questions are a totally normal response!  You want to make sure your feelings are based on fact before you dwell on so many anxious questions. A comforting thought is that there is time to take a deep breath and prepare. Your perspective on life is going to be different. There are goals that will take longer to accomplish as your life will be full, but you’re going to gain something that you didn’t even know was missing.

What an opportunity to make a positive impact on this earth and experience seeing your child watch you overcome obstacles and approach life’s ups & downs better than the generation before.  Will it be easy?  No! Determination, surrounding yourself with supportive voices and the motivation to press onward can present such a sweet reward.  Of course, your life is busier and in some ways more complicated than it used to be.  That doesn’t mean that your life is ruined-just different.

Unplanned Pregnancy in Hampton, Virginia?

Help is right around the corner

Where can I get Help with an Unplanned Pregnancy in Hampton, Virginia?

There are a lot of reasons to come to Hampton, Virginia. 

You may be in the military, or attending college at Hampton University or Thomas Nelson Community College, or just here to visit family.

If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy, here’s a great reason to not leave the area – Alcove Health Women’s Clinic.

An unplanned pregnancy, by its nature, is unexpected. And unexpected can be scary. Knowing where to turn in unplanned and scary times is really important. If you live in Hampton, VA, the best place you can turn to is Alcove Health – located in the city right next door!  

Why Alcove Health? For a lot of reasons. For one, all of their services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL. Of all the times in your life where you will want free and confidential, probably none is more important than when you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and trying to decide what to do. With over 1100 Hampton women facing unplanned pregnancies every year, Alcove Health has served a lot of your neighbors!

Alcove Health provides you with medically accurate information so you can make the best decision for your reproductive health. If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy near Hampton, Alcove Health provides a free pregnancy test and a free ultrasound all a short drive away. This includes a safe space to process your options – isn’t that what we all need when trying to make this type of decision?

An appointment with Alcove Health will also get you a pregnancy test and a same-day possible ultrasound. But wait – why do you need an ultrasound if you think you might want an abortion? Glad you asked – because without an ultrasound you don’t know what you don’t know. How can you make a decision without accurate information? There are so many unanswered questions that matter, like: Is my pregnancy even in the right place (if not, that’s a different medical situation altogether)? How far along am I (this will determine some of your options)? Is the pregnancy even viable (a fancy word for meaning you are not in the middle of a miscarriage)? 

These questions are important. You owe it to yourself to get answers – in a safe space – so you can make a decision based on correct information.

More good news – Alcove Health Women’s Clinic is located in Newport News, Virginia, just a few minutes from Hampton. It’s close and convenient. 

Why does visiting a local clinic, close to Hampton, even matter? Because Alcove Health will also be able to direct you toward other local resources you may need – like food assistance, family services,  and emergency housing assistance – all right here in Hampton, Virginia.
