Coronavirus, Abortion, and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know
Updated: Feb 28, 2021
Experiencing an unplanned pregnancy can be one of the most challenging times in your life. It can bring about feelings of doubt, stress, and a lot of undue anxiety.
Navigating life through social distancing, closures, quarantines, and constant COVID-19 updates can cause worry, uncertainty, and even panic.
A combination of the two? It can make anyone feel completely overwhelmed, and understandably so. Even if your pregnancy was planned, you may be wondering if you should continue your pregnancy or if abortion or the abortion pill is a safe option for you.
Ultimately, before you make any decisions, coronavirus or not, the best thing you can do for yourself is to take your time and learn about all your options. At your consultation, you can learn more about side-effects, current precautions, and the long-term impact on your health.

COVID-19 and Abortion
If you are considering an abortion because you are unsure of the future, you are one of the millions of Americans affected financially by COVID-19, or you just are experiencing an unintended pregnancy and looking for a solution – we are here for you.
The abortion pill and surgical abortions always carry risks and side-effects to your health. Right now, elective surgical procedures are cautioned due to the unnecessary risk of spreading the virus. The good news is that time is on your side. We can walk through how the abortion pill works, different types of abortion procedures, and answer any questions you may have.
“If I have the virus or if I’ve been exposed to the coronavirus, should I get an abortion?”
It’s important to know that as of this date, there has been no evidence of transmission from mom to baby in-utero. Fetuses and babies have remained healthy even in cases where the woman has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
If you feel you need to make a decision right away, send us a message or give us a call today. We are still open and here for you.
COVID-19 and Pregnancy
How can the coronavirus affect pregnancy? According to the CDC, there are currently no known side-effects of coronavirus on unborn babies. There is no evidence of intrauterine transmission and no evidence that the virus is in breast milk. There are also no known long-term effects on a pregnant woman, fetus, or newborn. Furthermore, women are encouraged to continue to breastfeed even while infected with precautions to keep baby safe.
If you are pregnant or facing a pregnancy decision and concerned about the virus, financial stability, or a lack of resources at this time – we can help. We offer consultations on all your options, limited obstetric ultrasounds to confirm your pregnancy, and pregnancy and parenting support. Contact us today.
