If you are undecided about your pregnancy, parenting is a natural option to think about. Parenting can be a challenge, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Your child, no matter what stage of pregnancy development, is already half made up of you. Parenting allows you to watch as your child grows, takes her first steps, laughs, and develops his own unique interests.
There are a number of different types of parenting, ranging from parenting with a spouse, co-parenting with joint custody, to single parenting. The important thing to remember is, parenting can look very different for each family, and that’s a good thing! You have many parenting options, and thinking through them can help you create a plan for your future that fits in both a child and other important goals you may want to pursue.
