In life, there are a lot of unexpected things that happen from time to time. However, while an unplanned pregnancy may not be in your life plan, you could turn things around to help someone else and your unborn child. Discover how St. Elizabeth Foundation is here to help when you’re struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, and get in touch with our Baton Rouge agency to see what can be done.

It’s Alright to Be Emotional

When you’re going through an unplanned pregnancy, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the situation. There might be people in your life who make you feel as if you’re over or even underreacting. But no matter what you’re feeling, it’s valid and understandable.

So take a moment for yourself. Once you’re calm, you can begin to think about the next steps for yourself and the child. 

Taking the Next Steps

For an unplanned pregnancy, there are a number of options available to you. As we’ve stated before in past blogs, there are three major options to choose from. Some people may look at abortion, others choose adoption, and some choose to parent the child themselves. Each option has a different outcome, and our staff is more than happy to go over each option with you. But what happens if you do choose adoption? Take a look. 

Our Process

At St. Elizabeth, we not only put the needs of the child first but also the needs of the birth parent. That’s why we have a well-rounded process to ensure the best possible outcome for all parties.

To begin, we go over your options. And, if you choose adoption, we’re ready to help with counseling. We know it’s a difficult time, and as professionals, we can help you make an adoption plan. 

Once there’s a plan in place, it’s time to choose a family. St. Elizabeth has a number of pre-approved families to choose from, so you can have confidence that your baby is taken care of. We also continue to support you as your pregnancy progresses, and you can make the decisions you’re comfortable with for delivery as well. 

But it doesn’t stop there. Even though Louisiana is a closed-adoption state, we’re able to offer you the choice of open or semi-open options as well. It’s entirely up to you to decide. After everything has been decided and your adoption plan has been completed, we’re still there for you with our post-placement counseling. As we said, we want what’s best for you.
