Parenting can be a positive choice for anyone who feels prepared to take on this role. It is important to consider that the choice of parenting will affect every aspect of your life, from your present social and economic lifestyle to your future goals.
If you wish to continue the pregnancy you may want to seek medical, nutritional and emotional support as soon as you can. This is important both for your own health and the health of the fetus. If parenting is an option for you and you would like more support in this area, you may also want to find birthing classes, prenatal support programs, breast feeding support, parenting supports, and financial support. Some of these services can be found in our booklet Pregnant and Undecided or, you can send us an email for a list of current providers in these areas.
