Experiencing an unplanned pregnancy can be one of the most challenging times in your life. It can bring about feelings of doubt, stress, and a lot of anxiety. Navigating life through social distancing, closures, quarantines, and constant COVID-19 updates can cause worry, uncertainty, and even panic.
A combination of the two can make anyone feel completely overwhelmed, and understandably so. Even if your pregnancy was planned, you may be wondering if you should continue your pregnancy or if abortion or the abortion pill is a safe option for you.Before you make a decision, it’s important to take your time and learn about all your options. At an Embrace consultation, you will meet in a judgment-free environment with a caring advocate who can answer your questions and inform you of the resources available to you. The consultation is free and confidential.
Abortion and COVID-19: What You Should Know
If you are considering an abortion because you are unsure of the future, you’re not alone. No one knows what the future holds, whether the coronavirus is involved or not. Maybe you’ve been affected financially by COVID-19 or are worried about how the virus might affect your pregnancy. If you’re experiencing an unintended pregnancy and looking for a solution – we are here for you.
The abortion pill and surgical abortions always carry side-effects and possible risks to your health. Right now, elective surgical procedures are cautioned due to the unnecessary risk of spreading the virus.
Time is on your side. At Embrace, we can walk through how the abortion pill works, different types of abortion procedures, and discuss all your pregnancy options. If you feel you need to make a decision right away, send us a text or give us a call today.
How Can Coronavirus Affect Pregnancy?
According to the CDC, mother-to-child transmission of COVID-19 during pregnancy is unlikely. Currently, there are also no known long-term effects for pregnant women or babies in-utero. After giving birth, women are encouraged to continue to breastfeed even if they are infected with or exposed to the virus.
If you are facing a pregnancy decision and concerned about the virus, financial stability, or a lack of resources at this time – come see us.
