If you are pregnant and considering parenting, likely, you’ve never been faced with a decision like this before. First, know that you are not alone. Many women have been in your position before, and many will be in the future. Second, know that while no one can make this decision for you, there are many resources dedicated to helping you along this journey.
Is Parenting For Me?
While parenting is not for everyone, it may be a great fit for you. You may have questions like…
- Can I financially take care of a child?
- Will my parents or partner support me?
- Do I continue school/college?
- How do I raise a child?
These questions are common, but we are here to help you navigate them. Talk to our staff to get clarity and learn more about the parenting resources available.
Our B3 program at Heartbeats strives to help equip new moms and dads with the tools to become effective parents. Your mentor will send you educational videos to watch before you come in and then you will discuss them together when you meet. You get to choose which topics you want to focus on so the program is customized to your needs. We have videos on everything from prenatal care and parenting to healthy relationships and budgeting.
As you complete your education videos, you also get to stock up on goodies for your baby from our on-site store! We also offer monthly group events for our clients and their families, such as a Tea Party, CPR Training, or a Parents Night Out!
You can earn many of the items you need for your child with our B3 program. Diapers, Wipes, Clothing, Food, and Furnishings are available. You just attend education classes and earn points to spend in our beautiful on-site boutique. Most of the items available are new or like-new. So, when it comes to cost, financial support is readily available if you are willing to participate.
