You think you may be pregnant and you are wondering if parenting is the path for you to take. Being a parent is exciting and challenging. You probably have lots of questions!

At PRC Grand Rapids, we can talk about all these questions with you so you can decide if parenting is right for you.

Is parenting the right choice for me?

Before you decide if parenting is the right choice for you, you want to carefully evaluate your situation. Asking yourself a few key questions can help you organize your thoughts and think about parenting as an option.

  • Does the father want to be involved?
  • Do you have a support system to help you?
  • How do you plan to financially support yourself and your child?
  • What resources are available in your community?

These are just a couple of questions to think about, but when you make an appointment at PRC Grand Rapids, we guide you through this process and ask you critical questions to help you decide.
