Pregnant in Prague.

5 years ago I was living in Czech Republic. I found out I was pregnant. Unplanned to a Travel fling. Being an Australian in Eastern Europe, I had three options. Stay in Czech Republic and have the baby, fly home to Australia and have an abortion, or seek out one of the few Czech doctors who would perform an illegal abortion. I looked at affordable surrounding countries, Poland I could access an abortion if I could prove I was RAPED (I wasn’t) England and Scandinavia were my only options but it would have cost a fortune. I ended up rearranging my travel plans. I  already had flights booked to the US.. so I just brought that leg of the travel forward a couple of months and I was able to access a safe, affordable abortion in NYC. I 100% made the right decision for myself. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I went through with the pregnancy. The stressful part was the uncertainty. Carrying this foetus around not knowing. Wondering if I would run out of time and options. I’m one of the lucky ones.
