Helen is a 34-year-old married woman who found out she was pregnant after having three children already.
She also had a miscarriage in the past.
Helen did not intend on getting pregnant again, and felt overwhelmed when she saw the positive pregnancy test.
She did not think she would ever consider abortion, but she turned to the internet seeking answers.
Helen clicked on a Heroic Media ad that led her to contact one of our Pregnancy Help Center partners in Baton Rouge.
She came in to have a free ultrasound as part of her first step toward getting an abortion.
Helen sat down with a counselor, stating that she wanted an abortion.
She stated that it was not a good time for her family to have another child, and felt it would be better
for her other kids if she did not have another baby.
However, after seeing her 5-week-old baby on the ultrasound screen, it felt more real to Helen that she was carrying her fifth child.
She was encouraged by the staff, and felt more confident about parenting after her appointment.
Upon follow-up, Helen stated that she will continue her pregnancy!
