||Where Am I Going to Live?
Do you know where you and your baby are going to live? Can you stay at home with your parents? Live with your partner's parents? Find a place of your own? These are all questions that you will need to discuss before the arrival of your baby. Depending on the situation, involving your parents/guardians, your partner, and his parents in the decision-making is a good idea.

Hungry? Where to get Food
During pregnancy it is important for you to eat right. And sometimes eating the 'right' foods seems like it costs a lot of money. You can visit your local food shelter for you and your baby. For more information: Emergency Food Programs
There is also a program called Good Food for a Healthy Baby for young pregnant moms to drop in once a week, have a snack, see a nutritionist, talk to a Public Health Nurse, cook with other mothers and receive dairy and produce vouchers.
