How Do I Decide if I Should Parent?

Ultimately, a pregnancy decision is yours to make. It is important to be informed. Weigh all your options. When thinking about parenting, take some time to consider whether this is the right path for you. It may be helpful to ask yourself some key questions:

  • Am I financially stable enough to be a parent?
  • Will I need to work or stay home to care for my child?
  • Will the father of the baby help with parenting?
  • Do I have a robust support system in place?
  • Can I provide a safe environment for my child?
  • What resources might I need?

Parenting has its challenges but is also filled with love and joy that is hard to replicate elsewhere. And you may be more prepared than you think. There are people on your side who are ready to help you through any parenting-related difficulties.
