Common Concerns

Small Family

Some single mothers worry their child may miss out on having an extended family, or a second set of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Families today are different than they were in the past. Many children don't have a complete set of parents or grandparents, even in the closest family units. I've found in these situations that an older family friend can be just as loving and giving to a child as a grandparent. Encourage older friends to take an active part in your child's life.

Who Else Can Care for the Child?

It isn't morbid to consider what would happen to your baby if you were to become seriously ill or disabled. Plan ahead for this situation. Find a family member or close friend who can be called upon to help in case this happens. Knowing you have provided for such an event should give you peace of mind.

Together, Not Married

If you are pregnant and you are together with your partner as a couple, most people will assume you are married. You may wonder how important it is to let other people know your actual situation. If it's a sales clerk or a waitress, it probably isn't important to clarify your situation. If it's your doctor, let him or her know the status of your relationship.
