Am I ready to be a parent?

Deciding to parent is the first step of a long, wonderful journey. It is only natural to have concerns about parenting – even families who plan their pregnancies have fears and worries. You might be nervous about parenting for any of these reasons:

  • You want to have the baby, but the father or your parents are unsupportive
  • You think having a child will make your future plans impossible
  • You worry about what people will think
  • You don’t know how you would care for a child financially
  • You feel too young

These are normal reasons to be nervous, but they don’t mean you aren’t capable of parenting. At Options for Women East, we can offer you a variety of programs at no-cost to help you every step of the way.

Education and life coaching

We want every new parent to be confident when they begin their parenting journey. That’s why we offer education and life coaching to new and expecting parents completely at no-cost. You’ll learn about pregnancy, infant care, and many more topics that will help you become the best parent you can be. By participating regularly in our programs, you can earn items to meet the needs of you and your baby.

Prenatal Care

Any woman who recently discovered she’s pregnant is eligible to join our prenatal program at no-cost. Prenatal care is important to the health of both the mother and the child. We offer this program because we want to walk with you throughout your pregnancy journey.

At Options for Women East, we understand the worries you have when faced with unexpected pregnancy. We offer no-cost resources to prepare you and help you be confident as a parent. Contact us today for more information on parenting resources or to sign up.
