Unplanned Pregnancy Resources in Las Vegas

If you find yourself faced with an unplanned pregnancy, the countless questions that run through your head may feel overwhelming. It is important to remember that you are not alone and other birth mothers have walked the same path that you are.

Understandable, it can be scary to place your baby for adoption, but there are several places for you to turn that will provide you with the emotional support you need during this time. There are many options available in Las Vegas that will give you all the necessary help throughout your pregnancy. 

Let’s look at some unplanned pregnancy resources in Las Vegas to help you get a better idea of all the possibilities available to you.

Support Systems 

One of the most important aspects of unplanned pregnancy is having a solid support system in place. We understand that this can be too much to deal with all on your own and, unfortunately, not everybody has a solid support system in their family or friends. That is why we are here to help. 

At Adoption Choices of Las Vegas, we work tirelessly to provide you with the best outlets for support during your unplanned pregnancy. One of the resources we offer is a Birth Parent Support Group that meets regularly where you can sit down and speak with other birth parents who understand what you are going through. It can be helpful to talk through your situation with a group of people who have been where you are and know what it is like to be in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy. There is no limit to the amount of these meetings that you can attend, so that you never have to go without a solid support system throughout your pregnancy.

Medical Assistance

Throughout an unplanned pregnancy, the health of you and your baby should always be a top priority. That is why we can provide you with necessary assistance for all of your medical needs. After beginning your adoption journey with us, you will be assigned a Birth Parent Counselor to be with you every step of the way to help you find the best prenatal care for your specific needs. Your counselor can also help you to find transportation to and from doctors’ appointments so that you never miss a checkup. We never want you to worry about the medical care necessary for your baby as we aim to provide you with all the help required.

Housing Assistance 

Another resource available to you during an unplanned pregnancy is access to affordable housing. Nevada law states that appropriate and reasonable living expenses be provided for you throughout your pregnancy and the postpartum period. Our number one goal is the health and safety of you and your baby, and having a safe living situation falls under that category. We will provide you with various shelters so that you can find the right fit for you and your baby. Your Birth Parent Counselor will be with you every step of the process and help you to determine the best housing option for you should you be in need of one. 

We can also help you work out the details when it comes to paying your rent during your pregnancy and postpartum recovery. The Birth Parent Counselors at Adoption Choices of Las Vegas will always have your best interest, and that of your baby, at heart. We never want you to worry about finding safe and affordable housing on your own, we are here to help you!

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

Another unplanned pregnancy resource in Las Vegas is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This is an organization which works to ensure that you have access to nutrient rich rood throughout your pregnancy. If you qualify for SNAP benefits, you will be provided with a card which you can use for groceries. After submitting an application on their website, you will be scheduled for an interview where you will sit down with a case worker who will answer any questions you may have and walk you through the rest of the application process. During this interview you may be asked to provide proof of certain qualifications. Upon completing the application and interview process, the Welfare Office will contact you to update you on the status of your application. 

There are many qualifications that go into SNAP, so do not hesitate to ask your adoption case-worker or your Birth Parent Counselor any detailed questions you may have. This organization is put in place to help you provide proper nutrients for yourself and your baby so that you never feel as if you are in this alone.
