Tips for Single Pregnant Women

Being pregnant can be one of the most satisfying experiences that a woman can have as long as she feels supported and secure about her situation. Some single pregnant women are lucky enough to have the father of the baby present during the pregnancy while some aren’t so fortunate. here are few tips:

Get prenatal care – it is so important for you to be aware of what is going on with your body and your baby’s developments. Also, don’t just settle for the doctor that the clinic provides you – “shop” until you find one that you feel will fit your personality and suit your own needs. My first OB-GYN was a bit too cold and impersonal then I met one that was more warm and a bit granola, which was more suitable to my personality and needs.

Find a social worker – they will help you find the resources that you need; whether if it’s adoption agencies or single parenting groups. The clinic that you go to for prenatal care will usually provide you with a social worker but they just pick at random so make sure you keep meeting with social workers until you find the one who you feel will answer all of your questions and concerns. They can act as an advocate and therapist for you.
