I am Unexpectedly Pregnant. What Can I Do Now?

I am unexpectedly pregnant. What can I do now? If you are dealing with this question, know that you are not alone. It’s a life-changing moment that brings a mix of uncertainty and hope. Here’s a guide to help you navigate this journey, offering practical steps and sources of support.

Seek Support

Take a moment to breathe. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, but it is best to take things one step at a time. Reaching out for help can be a hard first step, but asking for support is important.

You don’t have to go through this alone. Reach out to someone you trust, whether it’s a partner, friend, family member, or an adoption agency like Colorado Christian Services. Sharing your feelings and concerns with someone supportive can provide emotional relief.

Your Unplanned Pregnancy Options

Before you decide what to do about your unplanned pregnancy, it’s essential to research your options.


You can decide to parent your child. Parenting can be rewarding, but it’s not easy. If you’re considering this option for your unplanned pregnancy, then make sure you’re financially and emotionally ready for this journey.


You can choose adoption at any point during your pregnancy or even after delivery. If you decide to make an adoption plan, your CCS caseworker will start by learning about your story, values, and what is important to you.

Take Care of Your Mental Health

An unexpected pregnancy can take a toll on your mental health. Practice self-care and seek professional counseling to help navigate your emotions and decisions. Taking care of your mental health is as important as your physical health.

CCS can Help!

An unexpected pregnancy can be daunting, but you are not alone. You can confidently navigate this journey by giving yourself time to process, seeking support, exploring your options, and taking care of your mental and physical health. The most important thing is to make the right decision for you and your baby. Trust yourself and reach out for the support you need.

Our services at Colorado Christian Services are confidential and free. We will help you create an adoption plan or provide you with resources and community referrals if you decide to parent. If you choose adoption, you can review adoptive family profiles and decide what family you feel would be best for your child. You can decide the level of ongoing contact you want to have with your child and the adoptive family. You can decide to have an open, semi-open, or closed adoption.

Talking to us does not obligate you to place your baby for adoption. Call or text us at (720) 280-9517 for more information.
