Pregnant: How Do I Take Care of a Baby? – Ripley, WV
Do you feel inadequate in motherhood? You may have just found out you’re pregnant, or many months in. Perhaps you have glanced at pregnancy and parenting resources but the sheer volume overwhelms you. You might just feel like you don’t know where to start, or maybe you’re already convinced that you don’t have what it takes to raise a child. We can help.
Being pregnant can seem insurmountable, the idea of having a person wholly dependent on you can seem impossible and instill a great deal of fear. Wherever you are on the emotional journey of pregnancy, you aren’t alone. We want to help you. You may feel overwhelmed and incapable, but our feelings are not final: they can be wrong, or circumstances can change. You may be unprepared now, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. You may feel like you don’t know what you’re doing, but you can learn. Our trained staff and volunteers are here for you to share your concerns and fears. We have numerous resources for you to educate yourself on pregnancy, labor, and newborn care. You don’t have to go into your pregnancy or parenting unprepared, and you don’t have to be overwhelmed. Come in and meet with us and we will help you sort through all your fears and connect you with resources that can practically help, so that you can thrive in your pregnancy and parenting.
