Parenting

Being a parent can be one of life’s most exciting and gratifying experiences. Yes, the thought of being a parent can be overwhelming at any time and especially if the news of your pregnancy is unexpected. We can connect you with the resources you need. Caring for a new life is a big responsibility but you don’t have to face it alone!

Many people would like to be parents at some point in their lives. Although the timing and your current situation may not be what you pictured, your pregnancy still offers you the opportunity to experience the joy of becoming a parent. We can help you understand and realistically evaluate your options and also explore help and services available to you.

Taking good care of your baby means taking care of yourself. Starting before your baby’s birth, your physical health and emotional well-being are important, as is a healthy lifestyle. We provide referrals to local agencies that can help you with prenatal care and childbirth. We can refer you to newborn and parenting support programs. We can also assist you to access a wide range of community resources available to you and your family.
