If you are currently homeless and pregnant, it’s understandable that you may be feeling overwhelmed. Pregnancy can be stressful for any woman, and the lack of a safe environment in which to take care of yourself, your baby, and ultimately, to raise your child may add to that stress. We want you to know that you are not the first woman to be pregnant and homeless, nor will you be the last…
Like any other pregnant woman, a pregnant homeless woman has choices. You can choose to parent your child, terminate your pregnancy, or place your child for adoption. However, not all of these choices may be realistically possible for you as a homeless, pregnant woman. That’s why it’s important that you learn as much as you can about all of your unplanned pregnancy options before moving forward; so you can choose the path that is right for you.
Parenting: Ask yourself, are ready to parent? Do you have the financial resources to provide for a baby? Will the baby’s father be around or supportive? Do you want to be a mother? Can you provide the kind of life that you want for you child?
Terminating your pregnancy: If you don’t feel ready to become a parent at this point in your life, there are still two additional options for your baby. One of those is termination or abortion. Abortion laws vary in each state, research your state’s laws on the practice thoroughly. Abortion is a highly sensationalized topic, use credible resources.
Adoption: Your third unplanned pregnancy option as a pregnant homeless woman is adoption. Sometimes this option is overlooked, but it can be an amazing choice for both you and your baby. A few advantages to choosing adoption as a homeless pregnant woman are that it is free for you, you might qualify for financial assistance, a place to stay, medical care, and more. Adoption allows you to know that your child is being raised in a safe, stable environment with parents who have been waiting for him or her. Parents whom YOU get to choose as well as the level of openness in your adoption plan.
