Help With Pregnancy Decisions

Pregnant, or Know Someone Who Is?

When a woman thinks she’s pregnant, there are many things she might be feeling: joy, excitement, fear, sadness, confusion, panic, loneliness. Even in the best of circumstances, a pregnancy presents uncertainty. If you are pregnant or think you might be, we can offer you direction and support.

You are about to make some decisions that will have a profound effect on your life, your relationships, your emotional well-being, your body, and countless other aspects of your future. These decisions should be made only after you have learned as much as possible about your options. Educate yourself and choose what is best for you and your baby.
If you want free, confidential help for your pregnancy, call Carlisle Area Family Life Center.
