Parenting can seem intimidating, especially if the pregnancy was unplanned and unexpected, but it can also be extremely rewarding. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you owe it to yourself to consider raising your child. We provide a caring, non-judgmental environment for you to learn whether being a parent would work in your unique situation.
Is parenting right for me?
Parenting may be new to you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it and do it well. As you think about whether parenting is right for you, there are some key questions to ask yourself.
- Do you have a support system to help you raise a child?
- How will you financially support your child?
- Are there resources in your community to help you?
- Are you in a safe and stable situation to raise a child?
- Will you be able to continue your education or career if you have a child?
Answering these questions will give you a better idea if being a parent is a viable option for your unplanned pregnancy.
