Is Parenting For Me?
So – you are indeed pregnant and you’re trying not to freak out. You could be feeling excited about a new baby on the way or you may be struggling with the idea of parenting. Choosing to parent can seem like a massive undertaking. Know that it’s not impossible when you get help and support along the way. You may be asking questions, like:
- What will my parents think?
- Will my partner stay with me or support me at all?
- What will my friends say?
- How do I raise a child?
- Can I financially support a child?
- Can I finish school and have a child?
All of these questions are normal and important to consider as you move forward. Our safe and compassionate team at Next Step Pregnancy and Family Resources are here for you. You are stronger than you know.
What If I’m Young & In School?
We get it – being in school is hard enough and then you receive a positive pregnancy test and your world feels like it’s been flipped upside down. There are many young women who have been in your situation and chose to parent!
