Pregnancy Testing and Options Counseling
In most cases, we offer free pregnancy testing to students who have paid the health fee.
If you are pregnant we can meet with you to discuss your options and provide appropriate referrals. You can also refer to Pregnancy Options Information, an online resource that provides accurate and non-biased information on all the options available so you can make an informed decision about your pregnancy.
Legally, adoption means surrendering your right to parent your child and giving someone else the permission to take on the legal right and responsibility of parenting your child. Adoption isn’t giving away your child, giving up on your child, or selling your child. It is making a plan for your child’s care when you are unable to care for your baby yourself.

The nearest abortion provider to UNH is the Joan G. Lovering Health Center in Greenland (12 miles from campus). They provide confidential and safe surgical and medical abortions, including pre and post abortion counseling/education. They can also refer you to another agency that is closer to your home or location, even if you are outside of New Hampshire.
Keeping the Baby
Although Health & Wellness does not provide prenatal care, we can work with you to find a clinical provider in the area who can guide you through your pregnancy. You can also make an appointment with one of our Wellness Educator/Counselors or Nutrition Counselor to discuss wellness and nutrition self-care.
Counseling and Support
Finding out that you are pregnant can be an overwhelming experience, but you don't have to go through it alone. UNH has many counseling and support services available to assist you through finding out your pregnant, deciding what to do and coping with your decision, whatever it may be.
