Your partner just told you she’s pregnant and your whole world feels like it stopped. Now what? You may feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, feeling responsible for what happens next. You may have questions like…
- Is the baby really mine?
- Can I support a child?
- What are our options?
- What will our parents say?
- Where will we live?
- How does adoption work?
While it feels like a lot of pressure right now, you are stronger than you know. Our team is here to help support you in this journey ahead. You are not alone.
Your Feelings Matter
An unplanned pregnancy not only impacts women, but men too. You may doubt your part in this journey, wondering if you should get involved. The answer is simple: yes! Your opinion and support matter during this time. Talk to us today for extra support and to get any of your pressing questions answered. We are here for you.
How Do I Support My Girlfriend?
One of the best things you can do is listen! Everything works out better when you sit back and listen to how your partner is feeling. Your presence matters to her right now, even if she doesn’t say that to you. Give your partner time to process her own emotions, as you do the same. Let her know you are there for her and that she is not alone.
Be Sure She’s Pregnant
It’s essential to confirm that your girlfriend is indeed pregnant. Though at-home pregnancy tests are very accurate, there is always a chance for inaccuracy if taken incorrectly or at the wrong time. Double-check with lab-quality pregnancy testing at our center, followed by an ultrasound to determine what your options are.
Learn Your Options Together
Once you have confirmed that your partner is pregnant, it’s time to learn about all your pregnancy options. Be informed about each one to determine the risks and benefits of each. Talk to our team today to learn about all three of your options: abortion, adoption, and parenting.
The choice is ultimately up to the both of you, but we are here to educate you about all your options. Schedule a no-cost appointment to get started and learn more about our resources and support.
