It’s okay to change your mind

We planned to have a baby in a couple of years but my partner begged to start trying now. He promised he’d be by my side and we’d raise our our baby together. I thought why not if we were going to have one together anyway. When I instantly fell pregnant, it all changed. All of a sudden, it wasn’t the right timing and I’d be raising our child on my own. He was hinting abortion without wanting to be the “responsible” for that decision. I’ve always been pro-choice for everyone else but pro-life for myself. I took the precautions not to get pregnant unless it was planned. I cried at the thought of termination but realised it’s okay to change your mind, even if it’s planned. Things change. People change. And situations changed. If I couldn’t depend on my partner then how could our future child? I’ve decided to own my decision, my choice and my body.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
