The couple is given an educational brochure from the agency or individual they met with to help support their decision.

She is meeting with various groups and individuals (i.e., medical doctor, Planned Parenthood, pastor, adoptive parents) to help her make an informed decision about the pregnancy. She is given an educational brochure from the agency or individual she met with to help support her decision.

Address the questions below within the brochure.

Important Factors: What can the couple or single female expect during the pregnancy both during conception and prenatal period of development? What are some important factors that the parents should take into consideration during this period (e.g., environmental influences, diet, medications, drugs)?

Support Systems: Provide information about the individual or agency the couple or single female met with (e.g., Planned Parenthood). Include local contact information and a brief description of the agency or individual support they received (i.e., describe what the agency support includes).

Options and Resources: What counsel was the couple or single female provided? Outline all options the couple or single female were given and offer a brief description of each. Provide statistics for the couple or single female to help them decide. Provide additional resources for the couple or single female (e.g., support groups, clinics) should they need to follow up with a specific agency or doctor.
