“My partner doesn’t want the baby, but I do.”
“How will I finish school?”
“Where will I live?”
“I can’t afford a child.”
“I’m too young.”
The thought of being a parent can be overwhelming, especially if the news of your pregnancy is unexpected. Caring for a new life is a big responsibility. Being a parent can be one of life’s most rewarding, yet challenging experiences.
Many people would like to be parents at some point in their lives. Although the timing and your current situation may not be what you pictured, your pregnancy still offers you the opportunity to experience the joy of becoming a parent. We can help you understand and realistically evaluate your options and explore help and services available to you.
At times parenting will require personal sacrifice and you may need to delay some of your goals. By making a long-term plan and finding solutions to your challenges, you may find that you have the confidence to face the future as a parent. Starting before your baby’s birth, your physical health and emotional well-being are important, as is a healthy lifestyle.
Our trained support workers are available to discuss with you any questions you may have regarding parenting. We are here to help you understand all your options so that you can make an informed decision. It is your pregnancy, your right to know, and your decision. We are committed to providing you with caring emotional support, no matter what you decide.
