She’s Pregnant…Now What?
Men & Partners
When she comes to you and tells you she could be pregnant, it’s natural to feel nervous or unsure. You might feel scared, confused, or angry. That’s why we welcome men at our pregnancy center.
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 dealing with the realities of an unplanned pregnancy, we are here to listen and answer your questions regarding your rights and pregnancy options.
Gather the Facts
Before you begin worrying what decision she is going to make, does she know if she is really pregnant? A positive test (including a home test) is an indication of pregnancy, but not a confirmation. The test result should be confirmed by an OB Ultrasound exam.
The OB Ultrasound exam will answer 3 important questions that are critical regardless of what options you both are considering:
- Is the pregnancy viable – that is, is the pregnancy in the uterus?
- Is there a heartbeat?
- How far along is she?
Make an appointment for a free OB ultrasound and learn more about your options.
Staying calm and helping her research all her options is one of the best things you can do. Offer real support by letting her know you are there for her no matter what. She needs to feel heard, respected and to know she is strong enough.
