Am I Ready to be a Parent?

Even thinking about parenting might overwhelm you when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. We totally understand, and we are here to help. Becoming a new mom or dad is challenging, but it also comes with great rewards. Here is more information about your option of parenting so you can feel confident about your decision.

Your Parenting Option

Whether you are pregnant for the first time or have kids already, rarely does any woman or man feel ready to bring a child into the world. It can be messy, exciting, fun, and full of surprises. You may even be a single parent, wondering if you can really do this on your own.

Choosing to parent is a big decision and one of great responsibility, so it’s essential to take a step back and think over your options. Just know, parenting is not impossible, and there are all sorts of resources and people available to you who can help.

Deciding to Parent

There is so much joy and hope that children bring into a new parent’s life. You will see that the good days outweigh the hard ones. If you do decide to say yes to the parenting journey, you are not alone. You may ask yourself:

  • How am I going to work & take care of a baby?
  • How do I support my child financially?
  • What resources can I get to help?
  • Will my parents/friends support me?

These are all common questions that come to mind with any woman facing an unplanned pregnancy. We want to help.
