The news that you are pregnant can be exciting; but under certain circumstances, it can leave you feeling scared, alone, and wondering what pregnancy options are available. An unplanned pregnancy can have you searching for help from an abortion clinic as an option. However, there are abortion alternatives in Albuquerque to provide help, assistance, and care for you during this process.
Exploring your pregnancy options
There are times when you may feel you have no choice but to turn to abortion as the only alternative to an unplanned pregnancy. Perhaps you are very young and being a parent at this time in life was not planned. Maybe you feel you have no support system to help you care for a child. You may also have financial difficulties that you feel would not enable you to have a child at this time. There are a variety of reasons women begin to think about abortion as the only option.
There are alternatives to abortion and Care Net is a safe and supportive place to discuss and explore all the alternatives. You may be surprised to know that pregnancy options are available for you at this difficult time. Care Net will give you an understanding of abortion, adoption, and becoming a parent.
Free pregnancy testing and limited ultrasounds
You may only suspect you’re pregnant, and Care Net can help by providing you with free pregnancy testing as a first step. If your test is positive, we can then do a free limited ultrasound to determine how far along you are in your pregnancy. These are the first steps in the process of deciding how to handle your unexpected pregnancy.
There are four Care Net locations in New Mexico. You may call to schedule an appointment or just walk into any location any time they are open.
Are abortion clinics in New Mexico safe?
You may be wondering if abortion is a safe option in New Mexico. Although generally, abortion is safe when performed by a licensed clinic, there are risks associated with it. Some of the risks are long-term. Abortion is a medical procedure and all medical procedures have risks and potential complications.
There are two types of abortions: chemical and surgical. If a woman’s pregnancy is 10 weeks or less, a chemical abortion will be performed. This is a two-step process that can result in nausea, diarrhea, chills, fever, weakness, dizziness, and headache. Heavy bleeding can also occur for up to 30 days. Surgical abortion is performed when the pregnancy stage is beyond 10 weeks and has much higher risks for complications.
Care Net will provide you with compassion, kindness, and support while educating you on all your options.
