Would You Like to Parent?

Your pregnancy came as a surprise. You may have never dreamed you would be pregnant now, much less parent a child. However, parenting is possible with the right support and a lot of determination.

No one is ever completely prepared for parenthood. It doesn’t matter how many books you read or podcasts you listen to. Every parenting experience is different because every child is unique. That doesn’t mean you can’t learn a thing or two.

Let’s discuss your situation and the available resources to see if parenting is right for you.

Choosing to parent is filled with challenges, but there are also rewards. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Will my partner or parents support me if I decide to parent?
  • Where will I live?
  • Can I continue my education or my career?
  • How will I financially support my child and myself?
  • Do I have emotional and physical support?

If the answers to these questions seem overwhelming, we can help you. Schedule an appointment for free and confidential pregnancy counseling.

By sharing your needs with us, we can determine the best way to assist you. Here are a few of the ways we can help:

  • Emotional support and assistance speaking with your partner or parents
  • Transportation to and from medical appointments if you live in the Bryan/College Station area
  • Assistance with health insurance such as Medicaid
  • Assistance in finding safe housing
  • Job training and placement through the Texas Workforce
  • Help in acquiring food, clothing, childcare, etc.
  • Life skills and parenting education

Just because something is unplanned doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Like all of your options, choosing to parent is a big decision. You need the support of others.

Parenting requires a willingness to sacrifice and work hard, but raising your child can be very rewarding. Schedule an appointment to speak with one of our caring pregnancy counselors. We want the best for you and your future.
