You are not alone in this situation. We can help the two of you get through this. Your partner needs your support now more than ever.
It’s vitally important that you provide her with the emotional and physical help she needs. Here are some tips on what to do.
What To Do
- First, before anything else, confirm her pregnancy. Schedule an appointment for both of you to come to Hope Pregnancy Center. She can take a free pregnancy test, and if necessary, we can schedule her for a free limited ultrasound.
- Talk with her and listen to her. Keep the lines of communication open between the two of you at all times.
- Share your thoughts with her. Ultimately, the choice is hers, but she should hear what you’re thinking.
- Talk with the important people in your life. Discuss the situation with your parents and others who will be directly affected. Keeping this a secret will only add to the stress – yours and hers.
- Educate yourself about all of your pregnancy options.
- Be honest with her and yourself. You’ll be surprised at how much it will help her to know that you share the same concerns.
What Not To Do
- Don’t run away from your responsibilities.
- Do not close yourself off emotionally because you are not the only one involved.
- Do not pressure her. You both need to work together.
- Do not stop communicating. Express your feelings and add your input whenever it’s needed.
