Parenting may seem like something people always embark on intentionally. However, the CDC reports that nearly half of all pregnancies are unplanned. You are not alone. Despite not planning to become a parent at this point in your life, we are here to help you explore parenting as an option for your unplanned pregnancy. 

How do I know if I am ready to be a parent? 

Only you will be able to answer this question. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you might not know where to start when considering parenting as an option. At Alpha Center, we are open to this conversation and to answer any questions you have about what parenting might look like for you. 

Questions to Consider

If you are starting to think about parenting, there are some key questions to ask yourself to help paint a clear picture of what your experience could be. 

  • How will parenting affect your education or career path? 
  • Does the father want to be involved? 
  • How do you plan on financially supporting a child?
  • Which people in your life can help support you in parenting? 
  • What resources are available in your area to help make parenting more accessible?
