Who Chooses Abeyance and Why?

Abeyance is a healthy choice for a variety of families who have a wide range of needs and concerns. One element that prompts parents to choose abeyance is their career. Many parents want to establish themselves in their field before settling down to have children. In fact, 1 in 5 women in the United States gives birth to her first child when she is 35 or older.* Since both women and men typically see a decrease in fertility after age 30,* this delay can make it difficult to conceive a child at all. If a child is conceived after  the mother is 35, then the baby faces more health risks than a child who is conceived when the mother is 25. Chromosomal birth defects, gestational diabetes, and placenta previa all become more common as mothers age.* However, Family Abeyance Inc allows mothers to be pregnant when they are at their healthiest and most fertile, yet delay having a family until they are ready.

Another factor that draws parents to Family Abeyance Inc is readiness at the time of conception. If parents are surprised by a pregnancy, they might not be in a secure financial or emotional situation and thus could be unwilling to bring a baby into that environment. Whatever the reason, if parents do not feel that they can provide for a family in their current position, they can come to Family Abeyance Inc and be welcomed, not judged. We have helped many families find the guidance and resources they need to raise a baby by allowing them to delay the moment that they must take responsibility for that baby. A child raised in a home where the parents are unready often faces a range of psychological and developmental issues,* that could be entirely avoided if the families were to choose abeyance.
