If it wasn’t planned or you aren’t in the stage of life where you feel you can support a child, you might feel scared and overwhelmed. It’s difficult to know what to do in an unplanned pregnancy. Most women don’t expect the test to be positive in this situation, and when it is – many women are in shock. They might be thinking,
