Where can I get support during my pregnancy?

Finding out you are pregnant with an unplanned pregnancy can feel very scary and overwhelming. You can also feel alone and isolated, unsure about whom to talk to or where to go to find help and answers.

The good news is that you are not alone, and there are a multitude of resources and programs to help you navigate an unplanned pregnancy.

Some of these programs and resources include:

  • Government Assistance: this can range from programs to pay for medical care to programs that assist in providing proper nutrition and basic necessities for your pregnancy.
  • Women’s Pregnancy Care Clinics: Many of these clinics have specific resources dedicated to women facing an unplanned pregnancy and can provide things like pregnancy testing and ultrasound scans free of charge.
  • Nonprofits: Many nonprofits are dedicated to empowering pregnant women to succeed and have programs that can assist you in everything from resources for your pregnancy to parenting classes to career-building skills. More than that, they provide a strong support network of other women committed to seeing you succeed.
  • Schools: Many schools understand the changing needs of their students and have specific resources to allow pregnant women or young moms the ability to continue their education and career goals.
