If your pregnancy was unplanned, you have a few options. Parenting is one of them. Maybe you’ve always wanted to be a mom and this pregnancy just sped up your timeline. Or maybe parenthood isn’t something you’ve thought about a lot but are now considering it for the first time. Whatever your reasons, we want you to know we’re here and can offer support if parenting is the path you choose!
What You Should Know About Parenting
As you think about this option, you likely already have a good idea of the level of commitment required. Parenting isn’t a one time decision you never have to think about again. Instead, it’s a lifelong commitment that will bring challenges but also much joy.
Here are some questions to consider if you haven’t already:
- Do you have support from your partner or parents?
- How will parenting impact your job or education?
- Can you financially support a child?
- What resources are available to help as you raise your child?
At Pregnancy Resource Center, we will come alongside you to offer resources and support as you embark on your parenting journey. We provide counseling services to help sort out your options and can make community referrals. We also offer parenting education so you feel equipped and ready as you prepare to give birth and raise your child.
In addition to counseling and education, we provide baby supplies like diapers, wipes, baby clothing, maternity clothing, bottles, cribs, car seats, and more. You should never feel alone as you parent your baby — we are here for you!
If you’re considering parenting and need help understanding this option and making a plan, please contact us to schedule an appointment today. All appointments are always free and confidential and we’d love to help as you pursue this path!
