Whether their pregnancy is planned or not, many women have fears about parenting when their pregnancy is confirmed. They may be worried about carrying the pregnancy, labor, delivery, or newborn care.
These doubts don’t mean you won’t be a good mother. In fact, considering the best options for you and your baby are a sign that you have the courage to be a great mother. While parenting your child might initially feel overwhelming and scary, we believe you have the strength to succeed.
You probably have questions like:
- How will I tell my family?
- What if my partner doesn’t want to be involved?
- Can I continue pursuing my education or career goals?
- How will I afford to support my child?
- How will I find housing?
These questions are expected. Our mentors can assist you in discovering the answers to these questions and any others you might have so you can determine if parenting is the right option for you.
Put your worries to rest by speaking with a knowledgeable mentor. Armed with resources, they can refer you to the appropriate programs and agencies to get the support you need.
