*Rochelle came to our west center for a pregnancy test. She had taken a home PT and wanted to verify that she was pregnant. Rochelle stated during her consultation that she was not at a place in her life where she could support a baby. She didn’t have a lot of family support or support from the father of the baby. Her mind was pretty made up that abortion was her only option.
Our Nurse manager Amanda proceeded with an Ultrasound to determine how far along she was and they were both surprised to see TWINS. Rochelle was shocked but also excited to learn she was carrying twins. She still felt that abortion was a better option at this time.
She was very early on in her pregnancy and agreed to come back for a second scan to better determine viability and gestation.
Rochelle came back for her scan and shared with nurse Amanda that she had decided to keep her babies and presented a gift of flowers and a card to our nurse thanking her for her help.
Rochelle had planned to tell her family about her pregnancy and has agreed to stay in contact with us throughout her pregnancy and birth.
