If you’re unexpectedly pregnant and considering your options, it’s essential to consider your emotional health as well as your physical health.

Studies have shown that some women can experience mental health issues even years after the procedure. Those at risk showed signs of:

  • Relationship problems
  • Substance misuse
  • Depression
  • Suicidal ideation
  • PTSD

You may not be ready to parent, so abortion might seem like the only choice. But adoption, too, allows you to retain your autonomy and avoid the potential adverse effects of abortion.

Modern Adoption

Adoption has evolved significantly over the past few years, such as prioritizing the rights and freedoms of women. It used to be shrouded in secrecy, with birth mothers having limited say in the process and little to no opportunity to maintain contact with their children.

However, recent changes have empowered women by providing more open and inclusive adoption processes. These changes include the option for open adoptions, where birth mothers can choose the adoptive family and maintain a relationship with their child.

This shift not only respects you as the birth mother but gives you a chance to make a connection.

How Adoption Can Benefit You

Choosing adoption can be challenging, yet it offers a beacon of hope over time. Adopting might be a path worth considering if you’re questioning your alternatives.

Many find solace and a sense of peace in choosing adoption for their babies after facing an unexpected pregnancy. Knowing that your child will have a promising future and security in the carefully selected home provides that comforting reassurance.

You can select three types of adoption plans: open, semi-open, or closed. Each option empowers you to decide the extent of your involvement in the child’s life, tailoring the adoption process to your comfort and wishes.
