We have all felt overwhelmed by the thought of bringing a little one into the world.  Frankly, circumstances and situations are never perfect to have a baby, no matter one's status in life. Life is always complicated! 

As parents, we have left the hospital with our little bundle of joy, only to realize that there is no instruction or owner's manual. Yet, we have figured it out one step at a time. Unexpected people have come alongside us with resources to help. We cannot imagine life without our little one –who too soon grows up! 


Parenting is truly an amazing journey with ups and downs. There is nothing as rewarding.


It's completely normal to feel a mix of excitement and apprehension about becoming a parent. Many parents have challenges, regardless of age, financial status, or background. Questions that are often asked include:

Do I have the support I need from my family or partner?

Should I continue school or further my career goals while parenting?

What if I don’t have insurance or medical care?

Our team can help you navigate through all these questions. We want to help equip you to be a great parent. We know this takes resources, but free and confidential material support is available. You can feel safe to talk to us in a comfortable environment with no pressure.

Here are some tips that might help you find peace of mind during this time:


Educate Yourself: Knowledge can alleviate fears. Take the time to read about pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. Attend prenatal classes. Understanding what to expect can help you feel more prepared.


Build a Support System: Surround yourself with supportive friends and family who can offer guidance and encouragement. Share your feelings and concerns with people you trust. Having a support system can make the journey feel less overwhelming.


Communicate with Your Partner: Open and honest communication is crucial. Discuss your expectations, fears, and hopes for parenthood. Working together as a team can strengthen your bond and provide mutual support.


Take Care of Your Mental Health: Pregnancy can bring about various emotions. It's essential to prioritize your mental health. If you feel overwhelmed, consider talking to a mental health professional or joining support groups for expectant parents.


Plan and Prepare: Creating a plan for the practical aspects of parenthood can help reduce stress. This includes preparing your home, discussing parenting roles, and making arrangements for support after the baby arrives.


Celebrate Milestones: Celebrate and cherish the special moments during your pregnancy. Documenting milestones and creating positive memories can help you focus on the joy of parenthood.


Practice Self-Care: Take care of yourself physically and emotionally. Get enough rest, eat healthily, and engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Taking care of yourself is crucial for both your well-being and the well-being of your baby.


Be Flexible: Understand that parenting is a learning process. Be open to adapting and adjusting as you go along. No one has it all figured out from the start, and it's okay to seek advice and learn as you go.

Remember that it's normal to have mixed emotions about parenthood. Seeking guidance, being open about your feelings, and taking steps to care for yourself can contribute to a sense of peace and confidence as you embark on this exciting journey. If you have specific concerns, don't hesitate to consult with us for additional support.
