Parenting

Parenting is not an easy choice to make. You will have many days where you might not think you can make it. Even though we’re glad you chose life, we want to make sure that you are not putting yourself into a stressful and harmful situation. Remember to learn about all of your options! Our peer counselors are ready to assist you in discovering all the support services that exist in our area. We exist to support you throughout your pregnancy and beyond!

Here are some questions to consider about single parenting:

If I can’t afford to live on my own, where can I live with my baby?

We can help you explore your housing options before you deliver. Most single parents need to work. Consider your childcare options in each situation:

  • Living with a friend or relative
  • Staying in a group home for single mothers
  • Living with your parents or the birthfather’s parents
  • Finding an apartment in public, subsidized housing

Can anyone help me with baby items, maternity clothes, etc.?

Life Choices Pregnancy Care Center has many material resources for you and your baby. We can help you with maternity clothes, baby clothing, child birth and parenting classes, etc. Our Services

How do I get support from the father?

The father’s legal responsibilities include providing financial support for your child. Most states have a child support enforcement agency that will withhold money from his paycheck if he is unwilling to pay. If the father is unable to provide child support, you need to plan how you will care for your baby without him. A birthfather’s support record may influence court decisions about custody and visitation rights. You and the father should also discuss your individual rights and responsibilities. A child’s needs are best met when you and the father work together.

Can I still choose adoption later if parenting doesn’t work out?

If single parenting becomes too difficult and you decide to consider adoption, making an adoption plan is still an option. It takes courage to realize that by yourself you cannot provide all that your child needs. But separating from a child with whom you have bonded can be difficult. We will be happy to connect you with several adoption agencies in your area that can help you.
