Let's talk women's health care
Updated: Aug 23, 2021
After you find out if you are - or are not - pregnant, your care does not stop. You will need additional services and care regardless of whether you are pregnant or not. And if you are pregnant, you will need medical care regardless of what your decision is.
If you are NOT pregnant, you need to consider how this experience has affected you and seek education in regard to your sexual health, your plans and desires around having children, and how to remain safe and healthy while working toward your life goals. There are varying methods of approaching your sexual health and none of them are 100% effective at preventing pregnancy, with the exception of abstinence. You have an opportunity to educate yourself and take control of your sexual health.
If you ARE pregnant you may need one of the following services after you make a decision regarding your pregnancy. Depending on your decision you may need referrals to appropriate medical centers which can provide prenatal care, clinic referrals, post-abortion guidance, referrals for safe and effective family planning, adoption referrals, and abortion alternatives.
Alpha Omega Center provides some of these services in our medical centers and will walk with you through your decision-making process and next steps. You don’t have to face it alone.
1. Prenatal Care: Prenatal is the type of medical care you receive while pregnant. Your doctor will keep both your health and the health of your pregnancy in mind as she cares for you. Getting regular prenatal care is vital to keep yourself and your child healthy. While Alpha Omega Center doesn’t provide prenatal care, we can help you find a reputable and caring local doctor, and we can even help you make your first appointment.
2. Post-Abortion Guidance: After abortion, women have been known to experience complications, both physical and emotional. It is important to know what signs and symptoms to watch for during the days and weeks following an abortion. Your health is important and any medicines taken, or procedures performed, have the potential to affect your health. It is important for you to have someone you trust to talk with about what you’re feeling and experiencing - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
3. Adoption Referrals: If you decide to pursue making an adoption plan you will need to work with a professional to protect yourself and your child. We can help you find a reputable agency to work with.
4. Abortion Alternatives: If your choice includes an alternative to abortion, Alpha Omega Center can help you with any and all aspects, through expert prenatal care, experienced adoption professionals, helping you set personal goals and grow your skill set, and more. You are not alone. We are here to equip and empower you to make decisions that will benefit your health and future.
