Am I ready to be a parent?

This is a question many ask themselves when facing a pregnancy. There is a lot to consider when it comes to being a parent. However, many will say that no one truly feels equipped to step into that role, and taking a look at the thoughts and circumstances influencing your decision can help you move forward with confidence.

Choosing to parent

Parenting is difficult, no matter what your age, financial situation, or background. You can read books and talk to different people, but no one is actually ready to be a parent. Are you asking yourself these questions?

  • Can I parent without support from my family or partner?
  • Can I continue school or further my career goals while parenting?
  • What can I do if I don’t have insurance or medical care?

We can help you process through these questions and we’ll work on finding the solutions to equip you in your next steps. Many women choose not to parent because they don’t feel they have the help they need. However, there are more resources today than ever before for women who choose to parent on their own.

How will I get the help I need?

Avenue Women’s Center is here to provide the education and support you need. Meeting with one of our knowledgeable and compassionate pregnancy consultants, you will have the chance to safely ask any questions you might have. Then, we can connect you to resources to parent with confidence. We’ll ask you questions such as these:

  • What is your relationship with your partner like?
  • Tell me about your support network?
  • What are your goals and dreams for the future?

Once we have your answers, we’ll work on finding the solutions to make your dreams for you and your baby possible.
