“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.” – Author Unknown
An unplanned pregnancy is already difficult but being surrounded by a “can’t culture” in today’s society does not make your decision any easier. You are surrounded by strong opinions and influences from an assortment of people and places: family, friends, billboards, social media, TV, etc. They frequently tell you how YOU should live YOUR life. Before making a quick decision, it is important to put the shock and fear aside to truly examine your feelings about the situation. Regardless of what you choose, you will have to live with this decision for the rest of YOUR life.
At Focus Women’s Center, we want YOU to own YOUR decision. No one can make it for you. WE want you to remember that you ARE strong, and you will be surprised to find that an unplanned pregnancy WILL make you stronger than you ever thought you could be, in many different ways. Don’t let society and social norms victimize you. Own your own life. We can help you find resources available, so you can make a plan. We are here to help you and empower you. What empowers women empowers society.
