YOU HAVE PREGNANCY OPTIONS

If you are pregnancy or think you may be, you have options. We are here to answer the really tough questions regarding your pregnancy and to empower you to make the most informed decision possible. We will discuss all of the options you are facing when it comes to your pregnancy decision - whether that be an abortion, adoption, or parenting.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO DECIDE?

You may feel pressured to make a decision about a pregnancy right away. Others may be pushing you to decide one way or another. Just remember that you do have time. You have time to think it through, talk to someon who will listen to your whole story, and decide after you process all the information in front of you. Plus, you can do that in a confidential and safe place at Lighthouse Pregnancy Care Center. 

  • ADOPTION

 

Deciding what to do when you find out you're pregnant is difficult. We want to help you step back, loot at the big picture, and make the most informed decision. If parenting is not an option for you, don't be afraid to explore the possibilities of adoption. Over the past several years the adoption process in many states has changed to give biological parents more control within the process and more rights to choose the kind of adoption they want. We can help answer adoption questions and provide resources such as:

- What is the best option for my situation?

- What does adoption mean, what kinds exist?

- Referrals to local adoption agencies and maternity homes

  • PARENTING

 

Should you make the decision to parent, you will not be alone. We have programs and services in place to help you with this decision. We realize that choosing to parent is not an easy task and it takes a life-long commitment to raise a happy and healthy child. That's why we will be here to help you get off to the best start possible. We are here to help you through pregnancy and parenting with:

- Provide you with maternity clothes, baby clothes, formula, diapers, wipes. 

- Birthing and parenting classes

- Referral to social service organizations that can help you

  • ABORTION​​​​​

 

First, we are here to listen. Many of our staff and volunteers have talked with women who have chosen abortion and some of them can relate through personal experience. Our goal is to discuss the facts about abortion. We are here to help you through some of the most important decisions you will ever face.We do not perform or refer for abortions, but we will give you medically accurate information about abortion to help with your decision. You can trust that when you come to Lighthouse Pregnancy Care Center you will never be judged, condemned, or forced to make a decision. We can help with this decision by providing information about:

- Abortion options and procedures

- Information on potential health risks

- Emotional and mental impact of abortion

- Alternatives to abortion

- Post-abortion impacts

- Post-abortion counseling
