Just because your pregnancy was unplanned doesn’t mean parenting is impossible. Many couples who plan to get pregnant also feel overwhelmed once they’re expecting, so know you’re in good company if that’s how you feel, too.
As you consider this option for your unplanned pregnancy, you may have a lot of questions. We’re here to help as you consider this option and navigate the choices in front of you.
Am I Ready to Be A Parent?
This is an important question to consider, especially if the pregnancy is unplanned. Here are some questions to help you take inventory:
- Do you have a support system in place?
- How does your partner feel about the pregnancy and parenting?
- Do you have childcare options through your parents or your work?
- If you’re in school, can you put your education on hold if you need to?
As you think through the answers to those questions, we’re happy to help you learn more about community resources that may be available.
