Pregnant and Not Sure What to Do Next?
Should I have an abortion — a question you probably never wanted to face... but now the news of the pregnancy has turned your world upside down. Many thoughts and emotions are probably churning inside you — maybe to the point that you don't even recognize yourself. How do you determine a way forward? How do you reach such a momentous decision that is likely to affect your identity and impact your life as a whole?
Hundreds of women turn to Profemina daily with these exact thoughts and feelings. Based on this experience, my team and I have developed a week-long email coaching journey. Each day, I will accompany you through thought-provoking insights, helping to make sense of the chaos and find your path.
