What help is there in raising a baby?

There will never be a ‘perfect’ time to raise a baby. Whether a pregnancy is planned or not, your mind is likely spinning with questions like:

  • How can I get by financially?
  • What about school?
  • What about my career?
  • Where will I live?
  • What if I have to be a single mom?
  • Are there services in Toronto to help me?
  • What medical appointments need to be scheduled? And if I don’t have OHIP?
  • What about the child’s father, my parents, my friends?
The Pregnancy Care Centre can assist you with community resource referrals for each of these concerns. We also offer in-house resources such as prenatal education, various support and planning courses, as well as mentor support for mothers and/or fathers.

Free Parenting 101 Program

The Pregnancy Care Centre offers a program called LifeBoat designed to help you plan for the birth of your baby and consider changes you want for your future. It is also an opportunity to address the goals you had before your pregnancy, setting long and short term goals, and identifying any areas you feel you may need more support. Topics include: making good decisions, realities of parenting, and financial budgeting.
