You think you may be pregnant and are wondering if parenting is the path for you to take. The thought of raising a child in a less than perfect environment can intimidate anyone. And when a pregnancy is unplanned it can be even more stressful. Just remember that you are capable of more than you think. Being a parent is exciting and difficult at the same time. You probably have lots of questions!
We can talk with you about all of these concerns so you can decide if parenting is right for you. There are many resources we can help you with to answer these questions.
Raising your baby alone is probably the most demanding job in the universe. If you are a teen (or a twenty-something), it can seem overwhelming. Even if you are finished with your education and working, single parenting can still seem daunting.
If life circumstances are making a decision to parent difficult, call Shared Pregnancy and let us offer you our assistance and support. You are not alone.
