A woman faces many decisions in life; there are many doors through which she can pass. An unexpected pregnancy often leaves a woman feeling bewildered, as if all the doors have closed but one. The caring, trained staff at Helping Hands Pregnancy and Parenting Center are aware of the fears that naturally arise from an unplanned pregnancy. We are here to help you explore your options and help you choose the path that is right for you.
You are not alone. We care about your health and life choices. We are here to help.
All our services are free. We are not motivated in anyway by financial gain, as we do not refer for or perform abortions, arrange adoptions, or provide prenatal medical care. You deserve to make an informed decision.
If you are considering an abortion, it is important to remember that an abortion is a medical procedure. There are several types of abortions and each procedure carries risks. You deserve to know the facts before you decide. You are not alone; several of our staff know firsthand what you are going through.
Helping Hands does not refer for or provide abortions, but we can give you information about abortion procedures and possible risks.
In addition, we offer the following pregnancy-related services:
- Pregnancy Testing
- Options Counseling
- Ongoing Support
Should you choose to have an abortion and are struggling with that decision, you are always welcome back. Helping Hands offers post-abortion counseling and support.
You are in the driver’s seat when making an adoption plan. There are several things to consider; will it be open or closed, arranged through an agency or private? Unlike adoptions in the past, today you can know your child and be a part of his/her life. You are able to choose your child’s adoptive parents and have the peace of mind knowing your child is loved and well cared for. We can provide you with resources that can help you on this journey. Although Helping Hands is not an adoption agency, we can provide you with information about the adoption process and refer you to several wonderful adoption agencies.
Perhaps the thought of parenting a child seems overwhelming to you at this time in your life. You may wonder how you will finish school, afford to raise a child, or tell your family that you are pregnant. We can help you with these concerns, identifying supportive relationships and community resources to get you through this. We will talk through the issues with you so you can decide if parenting is right for you.
