Continue with the pregnancy?
Maybe a pregnancy is what you really wanted, and you are happy about it. Go to your doctor who will help guide you through the process.
If pregnancy wasn’t your plan but you’ve decided to continue with the pregnancy, then you have some choices to make.
- Continue with the pregnancy and keep your baby.
- Continue with the pregnancy and place your baby in foster care. Zorg en Jeugd Caribisch Nederland (ZJCN) can guide you throughout this process they can be contacted at +5994163718.
- Continue with the pregnancy and have your baby adopted. Court of Guardianship Saba can guide you throughout this process, they can be contacted at +5994163283.
Whatever you choose, have a good think about it first. Your choice can have serious consequences. Make sure you are well informed and get the help you need.
How do you choose?
Talk to someone you trust.
Someone who can advise and support you. Preferably an adult, perhaps your mother or a counsellor. Make your own choice.
Tell your parents you’re pregnant.
This is obviously important if you’re still living at home. If necessary, get someone to help you do it. That could be a family member, but it could also be your doctor.
Talk to your doctor or another healthcare professional such as a nurse.
They can explain your options to you. They can also help you to gather your thoughts and make up your mind. Read below where you can go for help.
Remember: Do this as soon as possible! The faster you act, the more options you have.
