Facing an unplanned pregnancy is not easy. Caring, non-judgmental help is available from various services.
A 24 Hour Help Line (1-800-665-0570) that is operated by professionally trained volunteers is available day and night. They will listen to your needs and connect you to a local pregnancy center that offers free pregnancy tests, consultations about all pregnancy options and many other confidential services.
