The Teen Pregnancy Center cares for pregnant and parenting teens, their families, and their babies in a safe and respectful environment.
We use groups to support teens and their families during their pregnancy and once they become parents. Our team of health care providers, nurses, social workers, and other staff, as well as parenting teens, helps moms and dads become the best parents they can be to their babies.
We have prenatal care and education groups every week, and we offer a Teen Dads support group. We also hold monthly New Moms support groups for families who have had a baby in the past year.
Our teens are supported by our staff and Peer Assistants, graduates of the program who come back to group to provide support and "real" advice from a teen mom' s point of view.
We talk about everything in group - how mom's body is changing, how to make healthy choices during pregnancy, setting goals for after the baby comes, figuring out how to deal with all the advice people want to give - and so much more! Moms and dads can earn "Baby Bucks" to shop for baby items, and books to begin to read to their babies.
