Am I Ready for Parenting?

We know how difficult it is to make a pregnancy decision, and we are here to help. Choosing to parent can be challenging, but it comes with great joy and rewards. If you are considering parenting, here is more information about this option so you can feel confident and informed about your decision.

The Parenting Option

Many women and men feel too young or unequipped to parent. Know that there is practical support available to you. You may be surprised at the amount of community help available for mothers and fathers.

Whether this is your first pregnancy or you already have kids, rarely does any woman or man feel ready to bring a child into the world. You could even be a single parent, concerned if you can do this on your own.

We understand the pressure and questions with this pregnancy option, and your concerns are valid. Deciding to parent is a big responsibility, so it’s important to take a good look over your options. With support, parenting is very possible. We can help.

At Pregnancy Help Center of Chesterfield, we have trained client Advocates who work with pregnant clients and new parents on a weekly basis. These Advocates will select the pregnancy or parenting class that best suits your needs for that week. They will check on how you are doing, offering support and resources. Our Baby Boutique is filled with items that parents need for their children. We really mean it when we say we are here to help.
