Unexpected maybe, but not impossible

Even if you've decided to continue with your pregnancy, you may still feel overwhelmed or have a lot of questions. And that's okay.
Here are some questions we have been asked by previous clients as they thought through their role as parents:

  • How can I afford to raise a child?
  • How can I go about getting health insurance?
  • How can I tell my family?
  • Will I be able to continue working?
  • How can I coparent well with my baby’s father?

We can help talk through these questions with you. One of the most important factors for success is surrounding yourself with a strong support system.  We know there is a lot to consider when making the decision to parent, and you don’t have to make this decision alone.

Help is available

In addition to the many community resources available to you, the Prenatal and Parenting Program for new or expectant parents connects you with a personal Education Coordinator whom you will meet with once a month throughout your pregnancy and up to your child's first birthday.

Your personal Education Coordinator will help you navigate through topics such as:

  • What to expect during pregnancy
  • Preparing for childbirth
  • Newborn and infant care
  • Breastfeeding
  • Child development and milestones
  • Positive parenting
  • Additional helpful topics (budgeting, co-parenting, crisis-management, and more)

The Earn While You Learn program is free. Women and men who participate in this program can earn items such as maternity clothes, diapers, baby clothes, cribs, and other baby necessities.

Just for Dads

Dads have a unique and important role in their child's life.

In addition to the Earn While You Learn program, new and expecting dads can participate in our Dad Bootcamps. Held once per quarter, these bootcamps are taught by male medical professionals and experienced dads. This workshop provides education on important topics and a hands-on experience teaching newborn care. 

Pregnancy Testing

Many home pregnancy tests claim to be accurate, but you may have concerns trusting the results. This pregnancy testing service is free, and you will be provided with the result during your appointment.

Medical Screening Before An Abortion

Your health is important. That is why we offer this service at no cost so you can know how far along you are, the location of your pregnancy, and if your pregnancy is viable. Only an ultrasound can provide these details about your pregnancy.
