We know right now seems like a whirlwind and that questions and doubts seem to be coming to you left and right. Know that you matter, and so do your emotions as you and your partner face an unplanned pregnancy.
Support is not only available to women facing pregnancies but also to men. Find the help you need to support your well-being and your partners as you figure out what’s next.
Get the Support You Need
Support may mean the world to you right now, and rightfully so. You may have never dealt with an unplanned pregnancy or a significant life decision like this. Remember, you are not alone.
When navigating your emotions and questions, confide in those you trust, like a friend, mentor, or family member. Sharing what’s bottled up inside is important for clarity and improving your emotional state.
Once you’ve confided in someone you trust, talk to a professional, like your local pregnancy center, about all your questions and concerns. At Birthright, our knowledgeable staff will walk you and your partner through all your options and give you the information you need about available resources.
How to Support Your Partner
Your partner is most likely having similar questions and concerns as you. Do your best to consider and ask how your partner is doing. Listen to her needs and give her space when needed.
Be open and honest with your partner. If you need to, ask her what she needs, offer her food, and drive her to her appointments. All of these care efforts will go a long way and keep you both on the same page.
Determine Your Next Steps
Pregnancy confirmation is a major part of your partner’s pregnancy journey, as it confirms the health of the pregnancy and what’s next.
Though the pregnancy decision is ultimately up to her, your input and say in the decision-making process are vital to voice.
At Birthright, we have an entire community behind you and your partner! Talk to us today to get support for you as a man, pregnancy assistance, pregnancy services, referrals, and options consultation. We can help you make the best next step forward!
