Single Mamahood: What is it REALLY like?
Mamahood comes in different forms. Some mamas have a partner who may be a papa or another mama. Some mamas are separated or unpartnered for other reasons. Some mamas are single mamas by choice. We want to hear what single mamahood is really all about, and we recently received email:
I recently had a friend come to me asking about being a single mother. She just discovered that she is pregnant with someone whom she just broke up with. I would really like to give her as much information as I can so that she has some knowledge draw on as she decides whether or not to become a single parent. I can share with her my own story but I know there must be more information out there than that. I have done a umamas search on single parents but most of what I find is about single parents groups, etc. Does anyone out there know of any resources, beyond the standard WIC, Planned Parenthood and the like where my friend can get information about being a single parent, not necessarily JUST about the process of choosing or deciding against abortion? I'd really appreciate any kind of feedback that anyone has to give. Thanks again for being such a wealth of knowledge and support!
