An unplanned baby can wreak havoc on your life and your relationships for a number of reasons, some more personal than others. Generally, the problems and issues that arise from unplanned pregnancy are associated with the following:

  • Relationship with the father
  • Education If your pregnancy, birth and childcare interferes with school, don’t let this fact emotionally overwhelm you. Realize that there’s always a way to get things done. The solution may not be entirely obvious initially, so take the time to consider all options and outcomes.
