Parenting can seem like an impossible journey for some women (or men), especially if you are alone or lacking support.

Parenting can be challenging with the many responsibilities that come with it, but raising a child can be a wonderful lifelong experience.

When considering the option of parenting, many women look at their life as it is now and question how a baby would fit in.

  • What will my parents of family say? Will they support me?
  • How do I tell my family?
  • How will pregnancy affect my education?
  • How long can I continue to work?
  • Where will I live?
  • What if I don’t have medical insurance?
  • Am I too young?
  • What if I don’t have enough money to support a child?
  • What if I have a mental health issue?
  • What if I have been using alcohol or drugs?
  • What if I’m in an abusive relationship?
