How to Handle Being a Pregnant Single Mom

Show Notes: Episode 011

In this episode I discuss the difficulties and importance of making choices. I also talk about what to expect during your pregnancy journey as a single mom and how to best prepare for your baby. Making the right choice can be hard. Some choices come easier for some than others. Making the pro-life choice when you know what lies ahead is tough.

When finances are already tight, is abortion really an option and could you really give up your baby? Choices. Making the right one can feel impossible. Especially if the decision you're making in the long run isn't what you truly believe in.

Making THEE Choice

Maybe you're someone who just recently found out you are pregnant and you and your boyfriend just broke up because you couldn't agree on the same choice or you broke up later in your pregnancy because maybe he changed his mind about wanting or being ready for a baby.

Making the right choice can be hard. Some choices come easier for some than others. Making the pro-life choice when you know what lies ahead is tough. Finding out you're pregnant and you suddenly have three choices: be a single mom, have an abortion or adoption.

When finances are already tight, is abortion really an option and could you really give up your baby? Choices. Making the right one can feel impossible. Especially if the decision you're making in the long run isn't what you truly believe in.

The Journey Ahead

So if you're a mom who made the choice of keeping your baby regardless of the outcome of your relationship with the father, now it's time to prepare for the journey ahead. You need to understand that you could probably end up going through this alone especially if the father is not 100% on board.

This is something you will need to be prepared for. Do not spend the bulk of your pregnancy trying to bring him on board.

So spend what time you can at the beginning of your pregnancy knocking off tasks to help make sure you're prepared for your baby AND life after baby.

Suffering from Depression

A pregnant woman may not realize that she is suffering from depression. At first, the many other symptoms that are typical of pregnancy may not seem different from depression.

Part of the reason for the lack of treatment is the fact that many obstetricians are not screening for it. On the other hand, this is probably because of hormonal changes during pregnancy.
