There are many resources available to you. A good place to start would be a visit to your local pregnancy care center.
The volunteers there can give you important information about medical care, housing, food, child support, day care, employment, as well as legal and financial assistance. They will guide you through the process and support you for as long
as you need them. They will not try to make your decision for you. Most pregnancy care centers offer free maternity clothes, baby clothes, and diapers.
One of the hardest aspects of single parenting is the feeling of isolation and loneliness. If you are not receiving emotional support from your family or the babyís father, you should really seek out where your support is.
