What are My Unexpected Pregnancy Options in Nevada 

By Wendy Swisher

Finding out you’re pregnant is always a shock. An unexpected pregnancy can be overwhelming. If it is the latter and the pregnancy is unexpected, then there are decisions that need to be made. First, finding out what options are available is important. Then you can start the decision process. You have three options available to you in Nevada for an unexpected pregnancy. One choice is to parent your baby. This means you would be responsible for their upbringing and making sure all their needs are met. When parenting your child, you want to give them a good start to their life and prepare them for independence. The second choice is to terminate the pregnancy. This is never an easy decision.

In Nevada, there is a referendum of the people which says: a woman has the right up until the 24-week mark of pregnancy to terminate the pregnancy. If terminating the unexpected pregnancy is not an option for you because of your own religious beliefs, then there is another option. Your third option is to consider Adoption in Las Vegas. Adoption allows you to find a loving family to raise your child. An adoptive family who may not have had a chance to be a parent without your help. Some women become pregnant because of a sexual assault and do not feel they can parent the child. Their baby is a reminder of what they have endured. Adoption in Nevada is also a great choice for these birth mothers. It allows them to give the baby life without the stigma of their conception.

We Will Help Guide You Through Your Unexpected Pregnancy Options

As the birth mother, you get to make all the important decisions, like what type of adoption you want; open, semi-open, or closed. Open adoption allows you to contact the birth parents, where you can share pictures and have some scheduled visits. Open adoption allows you to watch your child grow. A semi-adoption is basically receiving updates but not as much contact as an open one. With a closed adoption, there is no contact between the adoptive parents, birth parents, or child. It all depends on what level of openness you want with the adoptive family. After you have decided what type of adoption, we will then move on to picking a family for your baby. Our staff will give you files of potential adoptive families. Sift through them and find the one that you feel is a good match for you and your child.
