What About parenthood?
Do you feel like you have more questions than answers right now? It’s understandable. Choosing how to handle your unexpected pregnancy is a big decision. Are you asking yourself these questions about parenting:
- How will I finish school?
- Can I continue working?
- What if my partner doesn’t want a baby, but I do?
- Where will we live?
- Can I afford to parent?
All of these are valid questions, and the answers may surprise you. We can talk about these issues to help you decide if parenting is right for you.
Should I Parent?
Knowing whether to parent or not requires thoughtful research. We offer a variety of programs and classes, as well as peer counseling, to help take you from pregnancy to parenting.

Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center offers an educational program called Earn While You Learn (EWYL), providing education on various topics from prenatal care to child-rearing to help guide you through this journey.
The program is facilitated through videos, discussion lessons, and homework. Participants earn Baby Bucks that enable them to “purchase” baby items from our Blessing Boutique.
Many of our clients struggle with purchasing baby clothes and other baby items, so we offer a Blessing Boutique with baby clothes up to size 2T and other baby items to assist you in providing for your baby.
All items in our boutique are free when you enroll in our Earn While You Learn program and earn Baby Bucks to spend in the Blessing Boutique.
In an effort to reach out to birth fathers, we designed a program specifically for them. The program includes opportunities to receive one-on-one mentoring, participate in group classes, and complete individual lessons designed to help guide men in being good fathers and developing other life skills.
