Pregnancy Help

Here are a bunch of resources I've found for parents, mostly through pro-life blogs or through the child development course I took at university. External links will open in a new tab. I hope someone finds this helpful! Resources geared specifically towards Christians are marked with a ♱. If you would like to recommend a resource for this page, please refer to my info page.

Life Canada's parenting resources (Note: the "How to talk to your kids about identity" resource suffers from the common "culture war" problem of not quite understanding what "the other side" believes or how they use terminology. As a result, the resource comes across as quite shallow and confusing to me, and I would not recommend that parents of kids with gender dysphoria use it as a major source of information. However, the other resources seem to serve their purpose well.)
