01. | PARENTING
You are in good hands. You will have your own Client Advocate to help you better understand each trimester of pregnancy. You will also have a private childbirth preparation appointment with an RN on how to best care for and understand your pregnancy and prepare for labor and delivery.
A personalized plan is available to every client and can address a broad range of topics in order to serve the whole client. Common concerns and research-based solutions will be presented. Topics range from parenting issues to relationship issues and EVERYTHING in between.
We will be with you every step of the way. Before, during and after. We are here for you.
02. | ADOPTION
Getting information about adoption does not mean that you have to choose it. We can present some information to help you understand what adoption can look like for you. There are several adoption centers we can refer you to for more information, while remaining your advocate. We are here for you every step of the way. Information is power!
03. | ABORTION
If you are considering an abortion, one of our first steps always includes verifying the pregnancy. Since up to 24% of all pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage, it is important to ensure you are not considering a procedure that may not be necessary. We can do that for you here at no cost through a pregnancy test and ultrasound verification.
Women consider abortion for many different reasons.
Maybe you are thinking…
• The timing is all wrong
• I’m just not ready for this
• He doesn’t want the baby
• I'm not sure I can do this
• I don't know if I can be a parent
We always begin by listening to your unique story, what your needs and concerns are, and how we can best support you.
You are not alone. We understand how you may be feeling and we are here for YOU.
Next Step does not perform or refer for abortions, and we do not profit in any way from your decision.
Next Step is a non-profit Christian organization empowering women to make confident and healthy life choices since 1989. All of our services are free of charge to everyone regardless of income, race, religion or sexual orientation. No medical insurance is needed.
