An unplanned pregnancy may be an uncomfortable or unpleasant reality in your current situation. Most of us have been faced with a situation or circumstance we wish we weren’t in, or in a position we wish we weren’t in. It can feel easier to avoid, evade, or refuse to accept reality. Please understand, you don’t have to face this alone.
