Am I ready to be a parent?

You might not have been planning to become a parent right now, and it can be overwhelming to think about or even scary. At Helping Hands, we understand where you are and we want to support you.  We are here to help you navigate and explore the possibility of parenting.

Am I ready to parent?

If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you likely have not considered becoming a parent before now. You probably have a million questions that you are asking yourself. To help you gain peace and begin processing, we suggest starting with a few basic questions.

  • Will I be able to continue with school or my career?
  • What support systems do I have to help me raise a child?
  • What resources are there to help me financially support a child?
  • Am I in a safe or stable situation to raise a child?

These are just a few questions to help you start organizing your thoughts. Our staff at Helping Hands is here to help you process your options and answer your questions about parenting.

What resources are available to me?

Parenting can seem daunting. We want to help you and give you access to the material things that you will need to begin parenthood. You do not have to start this journey alone.

If you want to parent, we will set you up for success. We have a network of resources for the women and men we serve.

If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you are not alone. Our staff is here for you. If you are unexpectedly pregnant, reach out to Helping Hands and make an appointment today!

Today is the perfect time to start again.
