Did you know that 50% of pregnancies in the United States are unplanned and that number rises to 85% in women under 20 years of age? Why does this matter, you ask? It matters because having an unplanned pregnancy may put you and your baby at risk for developing a complication during pregnancy that could have been prevented. It means that you may not be able to meet your goals and make your dreams come true. It means that you are leaving your future to chance instead of taking control of your life.

We are all different, but we all have hopes and dreams. Start making a plan to help yourself achieve your goals instead of leaving things up to chance. The first step is to think about how you want to see your life headed in the next five years.
