If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy, one option you may be considering is parenting. It’s okay to have questions and still need more information! Maybe you’re concerned you won’t be a good parent, or wonder if you’ll have support if you choose to parent.
Parenting is a brave choice, especially if the pregnancy is unplanned. We offer counseling to help you carefully consider this option and answer any questions you may have. We’ll walk with you every step of the way, providing material resources and support along the way.
Common Parenting Concerns
- My husband or boyfriend doesn’t want the baby but I do
- I’m too young
- I can’t afford a child
- I don’t have health insurance or resources
- I can’t tell my family
- Where will I live?
- How will I finish school?
Even when the pregnancy is planned, people often struggle with these same concerns. You’re not alone! At Hope Women’s Center, we can talk about all these points with you so you can decide if parenting is right for you.
Many people choose to parent who did not initially feel equipped or prepared. But just because the pregnancy is unexpected doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
You Have Options
The most important thing to remember is that you have options. If you want to parent but are afraid of this option because you have questions or lack support, don’t let that keep you from pursuing parenting. Yes, there are many challenges on this path, but there are many rewards as well. We offer resources and support along the way to help you feel empowered in this choice.
