Pensacola, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2019 -- The number of pregnant teens in Florida is lower than other southern states. The state has a teen birth rate of 18.2 per thousand, while Alabama has a rate of 27.0 and Georgia has a rate of 21.9. Despite the relatively low rate in Florida, pregnant teens in our state have many options available to them. One of these is to place the baby for adoption.
A pregnant teen can suffer from a lot of anxiety. She might be worried about how her parents, loved ones, and friends will respond to the pregnancy. She may wonder how she will be able to finish school and move forward with life. She knows that she loves the baby, but she probably doesn't know how she can care for it. By placing the baby for adoption, she is giving it a chance to grow up in a loving home with financial stability that she might not be able to provide.
The decision to place a baby for adoption isn't easy. Gulf Coast Adoptions understands. Our unique supportive services give these women the help they need to work through the emotions and get answers to their questions. Our assistance to these brave women doesn't stop when they give birth. We offer support groups for birth parents to help with the mental and emotional impacts of their decisions.
Pregnant teens who are considering adoption are encouraged to call our supportive and knowledgeable adoption team at Gulf Coast Adoptions. They can receive assistance during the pregnancy and emotional support throughout the years after.
