*Mediation between family members or others and client
If you think you might be pregnant one of your first thoughts might be: “How am I going to tell my parents?” Or “What is my boyfriend going to say?” The caring staff and volunteers at Options Pregnancy Centre can help you think through how you’re going to share this new information with your loved ones, and help you navigate their reactions.
What might an initial visit at our centre look like?
In privacy, and full confidentiality, you will meet with one of our trained pregnancy care support workers.
Some basic information will be taken, including symptoms, date of last menstrual period, etc.
If requested, a free pregnancy test will be given for your convenience.
At this point ALL pregnancy options will be presented to you in clarity and accuracy and a discussion will be had to help you process your thoughts, fears and questions.
Our meetings are very much client-led, and vary to a certain degree from person to person depending on your needs and situation.
If desired, a plan of action will be created which may include plugging into some of our programs or connecting you to applicable community resources.
Above all, you will feel safe, cared for and better equipped to make YOUR choice.
