Once she’s missed a period, everything can change – quickly! An unplanned pregnancy can leave you feeling surprised, scared, and trapped. She needs to hear from you. What happens next may be her decision, but most women really care where their guy is coming from. Give us a call to understand your options and how you can help her make the best choice.
Here are a few steps to making the best choice for both of you – together.
Make sure she’s pregnant. Offer to go with her to the appointment.
Learn about your options. She’s carrying the baby, but suddenly you are both parents. What does that mean?
Listen to her thoughts and feelings. What excites her? What does she fear?
Do share your thoughts and feelings. Consider talking with others who are close to you.
Take your time and ponder all of the options. Don’t pressure her about the pregnancy or check out. Instead, commit to exploring your options together and getting whatever help you need to make your relationship better than ever.
Let her know how important she is to you.
If you choose to parent, we have a fatherhood program (led by men) that can help you prepare to be a dad.
