Terms for Pregnancy Counseling Services and Information

For some teens and young adults, facing pregnancy can be terrifying. But thankfully, there are pregnancy counseling services and information centers out there that can be of help. Those with unplanned pregnancies can get the advice and information they need from professionals within these centers, which can take the form of abortion clinics. Other centers are more geared toward counseling teens on a variety of issues. At the first sign of pregnancy, patients are given all the information they require in order to provide some alternatives to them besides terminating the pregnancy, such as adoption. Here are some popular definitions regarding pregnancy counseling services and information.

  • Hotline – Women in crisis can call a pregnancy hotline, with lines usually open 24 hours a day. They can speak anonymously to a counselor regarding their feelings and options when it comes to unplanned pregnancy. Such hotlines can give referrals to area doctors, support groups, and helpful websites.
  • Pregnancy Test – Used to determine if a woman is pregnant. This can be done through urine or blood, but the common tests taken at home require only a few drops of urine. If done too early, though, the test can result in false negatives. The testing is based on the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG.
  • Tubal Pregnancy – This occurs when the fetus develops in a fallopian tube, as part of an ectopic pregnancy.
  • Abortion – Termination of pregnancy after a certain period of gestation.
  • Viability – The likelihood of the fetus’ survival outside the mother’s womb.

    Pregnancy counseling is available to women who believe they might be pregnant or have already used a home test to confirm the pregnancy. The women seeking information from these clinics range from those who desperately wanted to get pregnant and are celebrating the happy news, to those with unplanned pregnancies, such as a teen who is not sure where to turn or what to expect. Pregnancy counseling and maternity services like sonograms are often offered free of charge or for a reduced rate on a walk-in basis. These services are available to every woman looking for prenatal care or information about pregnancy and newborns. The first service often provided by a pregnancy counseling clinic is a test to confirm the pregnancy and possibly an ultrasound to determine what trimester the woman is in. This might be followed with a list of options the family has, whether the pregnancy was much anticipated or unplanned. Some of these clinics also provide fertility counseling for women who want to get pregnant, assistance for those dealing with miscarriage and classes on infant care. When a woman goes in for early counseling and information during the first trimester, her baby receives the best prenatal care possible. That is why it is highly recommended that parents go to a clinic during the first few weeks or months of the pregnancy to get the assistance they need for a healthy pregnancy and baby. An ultrasound in the early weeks shows a woman her growing baby and encourages her to take care of herself and her baby with good medical care throughout the nine months of pregnancy.
