Parenting

Another option for your unexpected pregnancy is to choose to parent. If you’ve considered parenting, you’ve probably got a lot of questions.

Am I Ready To Be A Parent?

No one thinks, “I am ready to be a parent” because no one is ever really ready. Parenthood is one of life’s greatest treasures and difficult journeys. Children don’t come with operating manuals so each experience is different yet exciting. 

As you consider parenting, you may be thinking about the financial, emotional, and physical support you will need. Our supportive staff is ready to help you through your pregnancy and on into your parenting journey. These resources will help you gain the knowledge and confidence to be the best parent you can be.

Together, you and your personal parenting advocate will create a plan based on your individual situation and needs. The community assistance for mothers is incredibly helpful. We’ll connect you with resources for:

  • Financial assistance
  • Material assistance including clothing and diapers
  • Low-cost cribs and car seats
  • Parenting classes
  • Emotional support
  • Insurance information
  • And more

Is Parenting Right For You?

Making the decision to parent your child isn’t easy. We promise to give you the support and assistance you need, but only you know if parenting is the right choice for you. Are these some of the questions you’re thinking about as you consider parenting?

  • Will my parents and partner support me?
  • How will parenting impact my job or education?
  • Can I be a single parent?
  • What if my partner or parent(s) don’t want me to keep the child, but I do?

These are all valid questions. We want to assure you that it is possible for you to parent. In fact, you might be quite surprised to learn what you’re truly capable of.
