Being a mom is one of the most meaningful things you can do. But becoming a mom at the wrong time can be difficult– for you and your child. If you are sexually active but not using birth control, ask yourself:
- Can I afford to support a child? Will I have enough money for food, clothes, diapers, and childcare? What about emergencies or illness?
- Is my body ready to go through physical changes? Have I talked to my doctor? Am I committed to eating healthy foods and avoiding tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs while I’m pregnant? Has it been at least 18-24 months since my last pregnancy?
- Is my relationship ready for a child? Have we talked about having a baby? Are we both ready for a life-long commitment?
