Being pregnant in college can feel like your world is crumbling. An unexpected pregnancy might make you question whether you can complete your education. 

Others have been in your shoes, and you deserve to receive trustworthy information about your options. Soundview Pregnancy Services is here for you. 

Could I Stay in College?

College can be stressful—grades, papers, extracurriculars, and a positive pregnancy test. You may wonder what others will think. 

First, know that you can’t be discriminated against due to pregnancy or childbirth-related reasons. Completing your education is possible but may require some extra adaptations and support. 

Before making a pregnancy decision, you’ll want to confirm key pregnancy details with the help of an ultrasound. A sonogram can determine your pregnancy’s viability, gestational age, and locationall details you’ll need to protect your health.

Weighing your options is crucial during this time. Soundview Pregnancy Services provides accurate, fact-based information on all three pregnancy options: abortion, adoption, and parenting. We won’t pressure you to make a specific decision.

How Can I Receive Support?

Choosing a pregnancy decision like parenting may seem overwhelming, especially if you’re in college. But it isn’t impossible. 

Our Parenting Program offers a social work consultation, a designated pregnancy advocate, and material assistance. We also provide the emotional support you need to navigate parenting as a student. You aren’t alone.

If you choose to make an adoption plan, Soundview Pregnancy Services educates you on your rights as the birth mother and provides information about the adoption process. We also offer referrals to reputable adoption agencies. 

Though we do not provide or refer for abortions, we can educate you on each procedure so you understand the possible risks and side effects. We’re committed to helping you make an informed choice.
