Deciding what to do about an unplanned pregnancy can be difficult. You are likely thinking about what’s best now, but you also need to think about your future. The good news is, the decision is totally up to you. 

No one can force you to choose one thing over another. Learn what’s available to assist you when you decide to parent your baby.

What Help Is Available If I Parent?

Start by meeting with a member of our knowledgeable and professional staff. We won’t judge or lecture you. Our goal is to help you get the resources and skills necessary to parent well.

We can help you answer questions like the following:

  • Where will I live?
  • Will my parents support me?
  • How will my job/education change with parenting?
  • Can I support my child financially and emotionally?
  • What resources are available to me?

Once we discuss your situation, our team can come up with suggestions, free resources, and referrals. 

What Free Resources Are Available?

BsideU for Life offers free parenting education. Our free classes teach you about your pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn care. We can also assist you with free courses on potty training, discipline, and healthy foods as your little one gets older.

Enroll in our Earn While You Learn program and earn points by attending classes. Then, redeem those points for maternity and infant clothing, diapers, wipes, and other necessities. It’s easy and fun. Plus, you’ll learn so much about the joys and challenges of parenting.

Are There Other Resources Available?

  • GED and eSchool Support

What About My Partner?

Remember, you are the only one who decides how to handle your pregnancy. Are you concerned about how your partner will react once you tell him you are parenting? If you are fearful, please contact the Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They can offer advice and solutions.

If your partner has a change of heart, bring him to our parenting classes. He can also apply to receive Life Skills Education.
