Unplanned Pregnancy in AZ in Your 20s, 30s, & 40s
As teenagers, we were warned not to get pregnant in high school. Our teachers and parents did not think about having an unplanned pregnancy in AZ in our 20s, 30s, or even our 40s. At the same time, each situation is different because each age group is in a different area of their lives. Getting pregnant before you are ready or before you plan to is jolting for anyone at any age. Adoption Choices of Arizona understands this and wants to help you navigate your next steps. Choosing to put your baby up for child adoption in Arizona at any age can be beautiful and beneficial to you and your baby. A beautiful sacrifice that Adoption Choices of Arizona is ready to aid you throughout this process, no matter how old you are.
Options When You Have An Unplanned Pregnancy
If you currently need help with an unplanned pregnancy, know that you have options. If you choose not to raise and parent your child, your other options are to terminate your pregnancy or adoption. If you would choose adoption, know that this is a noble and beautiful choice. If you choose to put your child up for adoption in Phoenix, Arizona, know that there are many great families waiting to adopt a child and grow their families.
Unwanted Pregnancy In Your 20s
If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy in your 20s, there is an increased chance you may have financial difficulties, which can make raising a child and paying for pregnancy-related expenses more difficult. If you are thinking of raising and parenting your child, you should know that parenting can be more difficult without the proper financial support and support from your friends and family.
For instance, if you are still in college and do not have the experience and education to have a well-paying job to support yourself and your child, you may be unable to clothe and feed your child. It may also be difficult to find a babysitter to watch your child while you are in class and pay for any of your child’s medical expenses. Keeping these difficulties in mind, you may be considering choosing abortion or placing your child up for adoption in Phoenix, Arizona. Arizona child adoption is a great option if you wish to give your child a good life with a loving family or if you want to keep in touch with your child later on.
Whether or not you are considering raising your child, you may want to consider your future plans. For instance, if you are considering a full-time career and education, this is, of course, possible, but remember that this means parenting your child could be a lot more difficult at a younger age without the support and financial means to do so.
Unplanned Pregnancy In Your 30s
Many women have unplanned pregnancy options in their 30s due to lapses in birth control because they assume fertility is declining. While fertility does begin to decline in your 30s, you are still able to conceive, whether planned or unplanned. Being pregnant in your 30s can lead to a higher chance of gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, preterm labor, and cesarean sections for expectant mothers. There is also an increased risk of genetic abnormalities in babies born to mothers in their 30s.
If you are pregnant in your 30s and did not plan it, you may have the financial capabilities and support system in place to raise your child if you choose to. You may also have a stable job and relationship to support you if you choose to parent your child. There is also the possibility you may have a family and be raising a child already.
Many parents find it difficult to raise more children if they cannot financially support more children. This could also be due to them not having the space to house another child in the space in which they live. In addition, many parents are just not emotionally able to raise another child due to being too stressed out and stretched thin. This is when many parents turn to either abortion or child adoption.
Choosing abortion or putting a child up for adoption in Arizona when you are already raising one or more children is not uncommon. Both of these decisions are valid. As the person potentially raising this child or whose body may be carrying this child to term, the choice is yours and will be respected here at Adoption Choices of Arizona. If you choose to place your child up for adoption with an agency in Phoenix, Arizona, we will stand by your side and help you throughout and following your pregnancy.
Unexpectant Pregnancy In Your 40s
Many women become pregnant in their 40s unintentionally. This often happens because women assume their fertility has declined from oncoming menopause or assume they have begun menopause. This can lead to lapses in birth control. Many women do not understand that you can conceive and get pregnant during menopause and until a year into menopause.
Being pregnant in your 40s can lead to an increased risk of miscarriage and stillborn risk, gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, complications with delivery, and preeclampsia. Mothers over 40 can also be more at risk of depression and anxiety during their pregnancies. Mothers suffering from depression and anxiety tend to give birth before their babies have reached full term. There is a higher risk for babies born to women over 40 to be born with low birth weights, chromosomal abnormalities, and genetic disorders, such as Down Syndrome, Tay-Sachs Disease, or Cystic Fibrosis.
Because of these risks, many women in their 40s may turn to abortions. If they wish to carry the pregnancy to full term but are unable to raise the baby themselves, child adoption is a wonderful option many women choose. Being in your 40s, you may be financially stable, completed your education, possibly married, or in a stable relationship with children of your own. You may be in a different situation than a 20-year-old having an unplanned pregnancy, but you still may be unable to raise or deliver another child due to physical risks, emotional difficulties, or financial abilities. If you choose to work with Adoption Choices of Arizona, we are ready to help you through it all.
