For the

Guys

Starting June 30 all locations by appointment only

What do you do when she tells you “I’m pregnant”.

It’s normal to feel nervous or unsure if you just heard the words “I’m late” or “I might be pregnant”. Lots of guys don’t know how to respond well in this situation – you might have a bunch of different thoughts and feelings like; how did this happen or what should we do now?

When it comes to pregnancy decisions, the choice is ultimately up to her – but you can have a big influence on her decision. If you need help you have come to the right place – we are here to listen and answer your questions.

Did you know?

Telling her "it's up to you" makes her think you want her to have an abortion or that you don't care. Your questions, concerns, fears and ideas are just as important as hers.

Next Steps.

Is she actually pregnant?
Find out for sure before either of you starts to panic. You can come in with her, or she can come on her own, to take a free pregnancy test and learn more about all the options. It's free and confidential.

Do you understand all the options?
If she is pregnant then get all the information before making a decision. Explore the risks, benefits, alternatives and consequences here.

How do you feel about maybe being a dad?
You might be excited...but scared. Maybe you feel unprepared...but want to figure it out together. Perhaps you have always wanted to be a dad...but didn't think it would be now. This may have been a casual relationship...or you really love this gal. Help is here for you no matter the situation.

Staying calm and helping her understand all of the options is one of the best things you can do. Real support means caring, listening and letting her know you are there for her no matter what. Do not pressure her into making a quick decision - she needs to know she is not alone in this.
