(Washington Stand) Women — young and old — who experience an unplanned pregnancy are typically very emotional. But how could we expect anything else? More often than not, these women are terrified. “I’m not ready to be a mom,” they think. “I just can’t afford it, especially on my own,” others cry out. The sad reality is that many women who get pregnant unexpectedly do not have any form of support system.

Either their families are disappointed, their partners threaten to leave them, or they’re too ashamed to reach out for help. As such, a lot of women turn to the government. And especially under the current leadership, the government only offers one choice: abortion. This, of course, is precisely what fuels the pro-life movement to vigorously spread the true message that abortion is not the only way. But sadly, too many of these emotional, vulnerable, and scared women are unaware of the alternatives.

That is why Stan Yeatts, a practicing board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist, created Stork Advisor. Yeatts has worked with pregnant women for years, offering them help before, during, and after their pregnancies. It was through his one-on-one interactions that he realized how many women there are who don’t have easy access to help. “I don’t think anyone in the world had any idea about the problems that would continue to worsen each year,” he shared with The Washington Stand. But “the maternal mortality rate has [only] increased each year.”

Yeatts continued, “There just doesn’t seem to be anything [getting] done,” and “I wanted to make a difference.”
