It’s amazing how many times we say, or hear, this phrase “My next step is to . . .” or “What’s your next step going to be?” When it comes to being pregnant, you have three possible next steps – to parent, to adopt or to abort – all of which are perfectly legitimate, legal and life-changing steps.
When you think you might be pregnant, the very first step is to find out for certain. A positive pregnancy test is a good indication that you are indeed pregnant, but the only way to confirm a viable pregnancy is to have an ultrasound. Although we don’t perform abortions at Next Step Pregnancy Services, we do provide free diagnostic OB ultrasounds to confirm whether or not a pregnancy is viable. We do this because statistics show that 15-20% of all women with a verified pregnancy will end up having a miscarriage, and if your next step is to have an abortion, you may not have to because your body is spontaneously ending the pregnancy – saving you the financial cost as well as any possible emotional distress.
So, if you think you might be pregnant, what’s your next step going to be?
