The decision to keep or terminate an unwanted pregnancy is a massive one. Before you make this life-changing decision, you should get all the facts. In the book we suggest that you firstly have your pregnancy confirmed by a doctor. If you’re an unmarried teen, take along an adult you trust—whether that’s a parent, older sibling or a mature Christian friend—for support.
Before you make any decision, it’s helpful to find out more about the baby’s development. Even at 5 weeks, the developing baby's heart has already begun to beat and pump blood.
