Every crisis pregnancy is unique. Yet there are always certain emotions that seem to be common. Emotions such as fear, desperation, anger, loneliness, disbelief, abandonment… Stop! Take a breath and talk to someone who is not in the middle of the situation; someone who can be objective and give you clear advice and choices that you can think about. You don’t have to make a decision today.
There may also be some positive feelings hidden inside; feelings like joy and excitement! But, they may not come to the surface as easily.
The definition of a crisis is one in which someone feels they can’t deal with what is happening. It’s what happens within a person. It’s not external. It’s what takes place as a response to what is happening. During crisis we go through the same steps that we go through when we are grieving.
It doesn’t have to be big, but we make it bigger by trying to make quick decisions. Remember, the decision you make will last you a lifetime.
At the Tomorrow’s Hope clinic we give you the time you need to make an informed decision, and we are there to encourage and support you once you make a decision. It’s not our decision to make.
