Am I Ready To Parent?
That’s a big question as no one is fully ready for the things that come with parenthood. Many times you simply learn as you go.
Maybe you feel too young, unequipped, and fearful about the responsibility of becoming a parent. You are not alone and there is support and resources available to you. Whatever you decide to do, we’re here for you. We’ll provide information on what becoming a parent will look like, and also offer resources and support if you decide this path is right for you.
Pregnant & In School?
Are you in school or college and not sure how to make this work? You may have many other questions running through your head. That’s very normal. It’s essential to be honest with where you’re at while also reach out for advice from others. Consider asking yourself questions like…
- Will I receive support from my partner or parents?
- Can I support a child financially?
- How will parenting impact my job or education?
- What resources are available to help me raise my child?
- Where will I live with a child?
You will have questions that you can’t answer on your own. Talk to someone you trust for advice and support. At First Choice Georgia Pregnancy Clinic, we have a team of client advocates you can come to and ask questions at no cost to you. You are not alone.
