Parenting might not seem like a feasible option for you when you were not planning on becoming a parent at this point in your life. What you may not realize is that the CDC reports nearly half of all pregnancies are not expected. We want to stand by you as you explore parenting as an option for your unexpected pregnancy. 

Am I Ready to Be a Parent? 

If you just discovered you are unexpectedly pregnant, you likely have many questions running through your mind. Take a deep breath. There is no need to make a rushed decision. You have plenty of time to evaluate what the best choice is for you.

There are a few key things to consider when you are considering becoming a parent. 

  • How you plan to support a child financially 
  • If the father will want to be involved
  • Who can help support you and raise the child
  • What resources are available in your community to help you
