Baby Can Wait has been created for you.  We know you want straightforward answers to questions about your body, sex, and relationships but don't always know where to go to ask.

We highly recommend you talk to your parents, guardians, or trusted adults.  But, if you're not comfortable with that, this site is here to give you some answers to your questions.  Pregnancy is a big deal, don't let anybody tell you it's not.  So, check out this website to find out more about body development, the locations of health care providers, or straight up learn more about sex and how it can affect your life.


October is Let's Talk Month

In October, we encourage parents and caregivers to talk to the young people in their lives about sexual health. Parents and caregivers are the most important sexuality health educators in our children's lives. Children want to talk to their parents about sexual health, but often don't feel comfortable bringing it up. In fact, forty-six% of teens said that their parents most influence their decisions about sex, that's over friends, religious leaders, siblings, TV and teachers. Eighty percent of those teens said that it would be much easier for them to delay sexual activity and avoid teen pregnancy if they were able to have more open, honest conversations about these topics with their parents. Many parents and caregivers want to start the conversation, but don't know how. We're not talking about a one and done birds-and-the-bees type conversation.

Conversations about sexual health should start when children are young and continue throughout their teen years. And we've got you covered! Download a copy of our Family Communication Toolkit below, or order a hard copy. It includes all the information you may need (and some that you might not need) to start talking. Don't be overwhelmed by the amount of information included, use it as a guide and use only what you need.
