You’re staring at the positive pregnancy test in your hand, and your mind begins to fill with questions. How am I going to do this? What will happen to my future? What options do I have?

All of these questions, and a little bit of fear, are valid and understandable. You’ve just been presented with a new challenge and must determine where to go from here. Luckily, there is help and hope available to you, and you don’t have to make these decisions alone. At Spero Medical, we’re here to walk with you every step of the way.

Your Options

You have various options to choose from when faced with an unplanned pregnancy: abortion, adoption, or parenting.


Before having an abortion, you’ll want to learn about the different procedures, risks, and possible complications. This way, you’re prepared and have the answers you need before making this decision. Questions you may want to ask yourself include:

  1. Have I confirmed my pregnancy with a medically grade pregnancy test?
  2. Do I know how far along I am and which abortion procedures I am eligible for?
  3. Do I know the possible side effects and risks?

Making sure you know the answers to these questions will help you feel more secure in your decision.


Adoption can be a beautiful but difficult decision, but it is not without its rewards. Luckily, adoption has continued to improve over time. You get to choose the adoptive family and your level of contact with them and your child.

Learning about different adoption plans will help you decide if this is the best option for you and your lifestyle.


Parenting is a big decision, so you’ll want to consider whether you’re prepared to be a parent. If not, we can help you determine what you need to do to get ready.

Many resources are available to help you access the very best support during your parenting journey!
