Take Time to Breathe

The first thing to do is to breathe. The shock or surprise of finding out you’re pregnant can leave your head spinning and cast doubt on the future. By taking time to relax and calm yourself, you can think more clearly about what your options are and what the next thing to do will be. In Colorado, you do not have to make a firm decision on whether to parent, adopt, or abort your pregnancy until 40 weeks.

Talk With Someone You Trust

One of the best things you can do is to talk with someone you trust. That might be a friend, relative, or coworker, but it should definitely be someone you can be honest with about how you’re feeling about your pregnancy.  Alpha Center is here to help you however we can, even if that’s just being a place where you can feel safe and comfortable.
