Pregnancy Services explained
We can assist with living expenses, medical expenses, food and help with transportation getting to and from your doctor’s appointments. Each situation is different and we’ll work together to determine which services will best suit your personal situation.
Your health and your baby’s health is very important. If you do not have a doctor, we will help you locate a doctor. In some areas we are able to provide transportation to your medical appointments. If you are without insurance, we will help secure Pregnancy Medicaid assistance or we will cover medical expenses when you complete your adoption.
Living expenses could include, but not limited to food, gas, utilities and cell phone bills. Each person has different needs so together we’ll assess how we can be most helpful for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy you.
A New Beginning can partner with any attorney or we can help you find one who is available to navigate the legal requirements and process related to your unplanned pregnancy. We have recommended attorneys who will advocate for your rights and your situation separate from the adoptive families.
