Do You Want To Parent?
The idea of parenting may seem impossible, but you’d be surprised at the many services and resources available. The Southern Ohio Pregnancy Center and your local community are ready to help you in any way possible.
How We Assist You
We want to discuss your situation to help you decide if parenting is the right choice for you. You have many questions and concerns, but we’re here to help you move forward.
There is no better way to prepare for parenting than to learn about pregnancy, childbirth, and the care of a newborn. We offer Brightcourse, a program to help you understand the basics online.
Our classes include lessons on proper nutrition, breastfeeding, labor and delivery, infant development, and more. We want you to be a successful parent, and our classes offer the instruction to assist you.
Earn While You Learn
As you complete each course, you earn “Baby Bucks,” which can be exchanged for items in our Baby Boutique. We offer diapers, wipes, formula, infant and maternity clothing, and other necessities.
You can also earn strollers, car seats, and other larger items as they are available.

Is Parenting Right For Me?
Only you know the best choice for you, your child, and your future. Consider some of the following questions as you consider parenting:
- Can I finish school or continue working as a mother?
- Where will I live?
- Can I afford to raise this child?
- What if my partner doesn’t want the child?
- Will I have the support of my family and friends?
- Am I too young or too old to be a mother?
All of these are essential questions to consider, and we can help you find a solution to each one.
