Am I ready to be a parent?

At some point in time, when you saw the positive pregnancy test result, you might have thought about parenting. You might have also thought it would be impossible, but we’re here to tell you that with determination, it is possible.

Parenting is one of the most challenging but rewarding jobs you will ever have. Children don’t come with operating manuals, so every parent-and-child relationship is new, exciting, and demanding. We’ll be by your side to offer the assistance and encouragement you need.

How Do I Know If I Can Parent?

At Aspire Women’s Center, we can help you create an individualized plan to assist you in parenting. You need to answer some vital questions first to determine your specific needs.

  • Will my parents or partner help me?
  • How do I tell them I’m pregnant and want to parent?
  • Where will I live?
  • Can I finish my education or continue my career?
  • How will I afford medical care?
  • Is there someone who will assist me with child care?
  • Who can provide the emotional encouragement I will need?
  • Can I learn to take care of a baby?

When you answer these questions and others, you help us know the services you require.
