For Men

If you think she's pregnant, here's a bit of advice that may be helpful to you right now

What you can Do: 

  • Listen and Keep Calm. This is the time she will need you most and you can give her the emotional and physical support she needs.  There are three people to consider now and she needs your support more than ever. If she is pregnant, your baby will need you, too.

  • Talk about it and Get the facts. Talk with each other as well as parents and others this situation will impact. People closest to you will genuinely want to help you and this can dramatically reduce your stress levels. Hear her out and get all the information.  Help her call and schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test.  If she is pregnant, you will want to seek wise counsel so, together, you can make the best decision.

  • Be open and honest. It's normal to feel angry, scared and unprepared.  Sharing your feelings openly with her will show her that she is not alone.

What You Don't want to do: 

  • Don't run. Your first thought might be to run.  Don't!  Trying to avoid your responsibility only makes it harder to think and act clearly.

  • Don't pressure her. Pressuring her will only push her away, and potentially result in a decision you may both regret. Working together is the best approach.

  • Don't forget. You have a very active role in this situation. Listen to input as well as share your thoughts. Your thoughts are valuable and important in making a good decision for you and her.
