· Pregnancy testing
· Test confirmation for medical assistance
· Personal support
· Confidential counseling
Upon learning of a pregnancy the pregnancy support staff of Catholic Charities can assist you in planning for your expected child. You may choose to raise your child or choose to plan for adoption. Neither decision is wrong.
If your decision is to raise your expected child, the support staff will provide personal support and counseling throughout your term as well as referrals for baby items, birthing classes, childcare, parenting classes and other community services.
Should you choose to plan for adoption you will have the opportunity to choose the couple for your child. You may or may not choose to meet and interview the couple, and/or exchange pictures and gifts through the agency for the adoptive couple. Ongoing counseling to support you through this transition is also available as needed.
