Over 50% of all pregnancies are unplanned, leaving many women feeling alone and uncertain of the future.
Brittany was young, in a great relationship with her boyfriend, and had just been accepted to nursing school. Life was good. Then the unexpected - she was pregnant. What did this mean for her and her boyfriend? For nursing school? She desperately wanted to talk to someone. A friend told her about Blue Ridge Women’s Center, so she made an appointment.
Scared and anxious about her future, Brittany was unsure of her next step. "I don't know how I can have this baby." At Blue Ridge Women's Center, Brittany talked to a client advocate about her fears, her anxieties, her relationship. They discussed all her options for her pregnancy - abortion, parenting and adoption. When Brittany left she said, “Coming to BRWC for support was honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made.” That day, Brittany made an informed choice - she chose to parent.
Since 1984, Blue Ridge Women’s Center has been serving women
by providing a safe environment to be heard and supported. Every woman is empowered with resources and support to make an informed, confident choice for her and her family.
