Without Support, How Do I Raise a Child?

One of the biggest concerns you may have dealing with an unexpected pregnancy is the lack of support available in your life.

You may be worried because your partner left or will leave when they discover your pregnancy. You may not have a network of extended family or friends ready to help.

The good news is that you don’t have to face this alone. There are many resources available and people who will support you—all within your community.

What Kind of Support is Available to Me?

Many programs and resources are in place nationwide to empower those who are pregnant and those with children to finish school, pursue their careers, and continue with their lives and dreams.

Some of these programs and resources include: 

  • Government Assistance: this can range from programs to pay for medical care to programs that assist with proper nutrition and basic necessities for your pregnancy and beyond.
  • Nonprofits: Many nonprofits help pregnant women thrive with programs aiding in life skills and career building as well as material resources you may be looking for. More than that, they provide a strong support network of other women committed to seeing you succeed.
  • Schools: Many schools understand the changing needs of their students and have specific resources to allow pregnant women or young moms the ability to continue their education and career goals.
