Parenting

Learning you’re pregnant can be overwhelming. It may seem impossible to become a parent right now. A lot of questions can come up as you wonder if you might be able to make it work.

We can help you process through concerns such as:

  •       I want to have the baby, but I’m scared about how it might change my life.
  •       My boyfriend doesn’t want the baby, but I do.
  •       My parents will be upset if they find out I’m pregnant.
  •       I want to have the baby, but I can’t afford it.
  •       I don’t have any insurance coverage.
  •       I want a baby, but not right now.
  •       I need to finish school.
  •       I’m married and the baby isn’t my husband’s.
