Is Parenting Right For You?
Did you know you can be a good parent? Whether you choose to parent independently or co-parent with a partner, we have the resources and information you need to parent well. Parenthood is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. It is full of adventure, love, and frustrations, but we promise you will not be alone. We’ll take this journey with you. Let us show you how.
If you are thinking about parenting, you probably have questions. Do any of these sound familiar?
- How will I afford to parent a child?
- What will happen to my schooling/job while I parent?
- Do I have the support of anyone close to me?
- Where can I learn what to do as a mother?
Get The Answers You Need
At the Pregnancy Resource Center, we offer pregnancy and parenting help at no cost to you. We have knowledgeable staff who offer prenatal education. You can set up an appointment to meet weekly with one of our team members to learn about pregnancy, nutrition, and childbirth. Quality educational programs are open for both women and men during pregnancy and until your child turns three years old. You can choose the topics you would like to learn and schedule lessons at your convenience.
Our Baby Bucks program is a great way to get the essentials you need for the first few years of your baby’s life. While you are taking different educational classes, you are also earning Baby Bucks for your participation. You can “spend” those bucks in our boutique for diapers, wipes, toys, clothing, etc. Items vary with availability.
Unfortunately, babies don’t come with instruction manuals. How to raise a child is different for every person because every child is unique and special. Many women choose not to parent because they feel they won’t have the support they will need. Sometimes finding support to parent your child is just one awkward conversation away. You may be amazed where your support comes from.
In addition, the Pregnancy Resource Center will be with you at every stage of your pregnancy and parenting journey. We want to give you the tools and advice you need to step into parenting confidently. Our peer consultants will be happy to answer questions and help you find the community resources you need.
