When a woman becomes pregnant, the majority of the time and attention is focused on her. This is completely understandable, but there are many other people who are involved with the pregnancy that have lots of questions and need information as well.
From the men involved to family and friends, we hope that the information listed below will help you learn more about support, options and how pregnancy can affect you.
So you think she might be pregnant?
Here is some quick advice.
- Listen: There are now three lives to think about. The situation involves more than just you.
- Stay Calm: You’re not the first couple or family ever to be in this spot. Freaking out will only magnify the negative.
- Talk about it: Hiding the news from people who can genuinely help you only increases the stress.
- Don’t bail: The more you run from this, the harder it becomes to think and act clearly.
- Don’t pressure her: Both of you would do well to work as a team. Applying pressure will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation.
- Don’t forget: You have a very active role in this situation. Listen to input as well as give your thoughts. It’s true, we’re here to help. At Pregnancy Resource Connection, we talk to many men about the options they have when they’re facing an unplanned pregnancy.
