Pregnant? Let's talk.
Incredible change happens in life when you decide to take control. An unintended pregnancy at this time in your life can elicit many feelings. You may feel confused, scared, excited, and unsure. You may think the only thing that could help right now is to turn back the clock, but there is hope ahead.
You can meet with a pregnancy options social worker at no cost, without pressure or judgment. You won't be told what you should or shouldn't do. Instead, we will give you the information you need to make decisions that are right for you.
We will come to you, no matter what part of North Dakota you may live, and meet wherever you are most comfortable. You're also welcome to come to any of our office locations. Together, we'll focus on your specific needs. We can talk with you about your feelings, assist you in looking at your options and help you make a life plan that's best for you and your baby.
