Education and Classes

If you are interested in learning more about our Education Program, we’ve got the program for you.

Your Options Education

Before reaching a final decision regarding your unplanned pregnancy, it is important to consider all of the options before you. While an unplanned pregnancy can raise all kinds of questions, there are rarely, if ever, easy answers, meaning it is important that you give this situation the time and consideration it deserves.

Abortion

Abortion is a serious medical procedure, making it important to do your research before pursuing it. Prior to contacting an abortion clinic, it is recommended that you consider the following questions:

  • What risks are associated with abortion?
  • What types of abortion procedures are available?
  • Am I eligible to receive an abortion?
  • If you are considering abortion, it is important that you speak with someone regarding your decision. The staff at our 30+ affiliate centers are available to answer whatever questions you may have regarding abortion or other unplanned pregnancy options.

    Adoption

    Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to be a part of your child’s life even after choosing adoption. Regardless of why you believe adoption is the best option for all involved, it is important to remember that it can provide your child with a caring, love home. You may be considering adoption because:

  • You don’t want an abortion, but don’t feel ready to parent.
  • Your family or the child’s father is not supportive of the pregnancy.
  • You feel unequipped to provide the child with financial or emotional stability.
  • Parenting

    Especially for someone experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, the decision to have and raise a child is a big undertaking. However, you may feel unsure about parenting for any of the following reasons:

  • Your family/parents are not supportive.
  • Work and/or school are your top priority.
  • You do not have financial stability.
  • You do not feel mature enough to responsibly parent.
  • We can address these concerns, and more, during your appointment.

    Education Classes

    Options for Women is not just for clients looking to set up a one-time appointment for a particular service. Our 30+ centers also strive to serve as an ongoing resource for clients looking to learn more and better themselves, even long after they’ve made a decision regarding their unplanned pregnancy. Our centers offer a variety of pregnancy services, including parenting classes and childbirth education.

    Classes available at our center including the following:

    Parenting Classes

    If you recently found out you are pregnant but aren’t sure whether or not you are ready to parent, we can help. Our centers can help prepare you for what to expect as a new parent and provide some tips on how to effectively raise a child.

    Childbirth Education

    INaturally, childbirth is probably the most intimidating part about becoming pregnant, especially if you have never had a child before. Our 30+ centers can provide you with the education and training you’ll need so that when that moment arrives, you’ll feel as prepared as possible.

    We also offer the following classes at select centers:

    Mentoring

    An unplanned pregnancy can turn your life upside in a moment and can leave you questioning how your future will unfold. Unfortunately, many people in that situation do not feel like they have anyone they can talk to about their predicament. Our life coaching classes will help prepare you for what lies ahead and devise a plan that will allow you to achieve those goals you had set even before your pregnancy.

    Natural Family Planning Classes

    If you would like to know more about and start a natural form of birth control, we are here for you. Natural family planning is a form of birth control that doesn't involve pills or devices. As a result, it doesn't have side effects. With these methods, you track your fertility, which is when you are most likely to get pregnant. You will have the opportunity to consult with a nurse about all of your NFP questions, get a plan that is personalized for you and the support you need to know your body. Natural family planning is not contraception, it is a natural method of birth control.

    Fatherhood

    The prospect of being a father can be a challenging one, especially for those without any prior parenting experience. Our fathering classes will help you meet that challenge head-on, with tips and techniques for being a successful father to your child.

    Job Search Skills

    If you were having trouble finding a job prior to finding out you are pregnant, that pressure you were already feeling can increase exponentially in a very short amount of time. Our centers are here to help you get the employment you need, with our classes specifically for prospective employees.
