If you’ve recently found out your partner is pregnant, you may be feeling a variety of emotions ranging from fear, uncertainty, confusion, anger, or even excitement.
Regardless of how you’re feeling about the pregnancy, we can help you process and know the best ways to express how you’re feeling. Many men are told they shouldn’t be part of the decision-making process, but your opinions are important.
If you come in with your partner for her pregnancy test, we have men on staff who can talk with you about the options available to you and your partner moving forward.
We provide education on all three options – abortion, adoption, and parenting – so you can make a fully-informed decision.
We also provide information on how you can support your partner. She’s likely feeling many of the same emotions as you and needs to know she has your support. Many women facing unplanned pregnancies feel alone or face pressure from their partner, and you have the opportunity to offer a lot of support for her as you both decide on next steps.
Most men think that supporting their partner means letting her make all the decisions. But it’s hard to make decisions when you feel overwhelmed by the many options available during an unplanned pregnancy. The best way to help her is to offer your opinions, let her know your desires, and specific ways you’ll support her for each option.
If you and your partner decide to parent, we offer individualized coaching and classes for both of you as you begin this new phase of your journey together. You’ll both face different challenges, but we can provide encouragement and training to help you overcome them and thrive in this season.
Not everyone knows how to be a good dad, but we can help. There are men who are ready to coach you: in relationships, parenting, life skills and more!
If your partner is facing an unplanned pregnancy and you aren’t sure what to do, we can help. Please contact us today to set up a free and confidential appointment where you’ll learn about all of your options from our caring and informed staff.
