So you just found out she is pregnant…what should you do? You may feel like you have no say in her decision, but you do. Yes, it is her choice in the end but you have the responsibility to speak up and be involved in the decision-making process with her. The fact is, her choice will affect you as well.
So what can you do?
A lot of guys think that she wants you to say “it’s up to you, whatever you choose.” What she likely wants to hear from you is “We can do this together. I will stand by you and be the best dad that I can be.”
We are here for you. If you need someone to talk to, we have volunteers who are willing to sit down with you one-on-one and help you sort through all of your options. We are also here for on-going support, no matter what choice you decide to make. Give us a call today at 941.408.7100. All of our services are free and confidential.
She is pregnant and you are shocked. Stop and breathe before you react. Your initial response will play a huge role in your daughter’s decision and in your relationship with her. It is normal to feel upset or disappointed but try to put yourself in her shoes and try to understand her fears.
We provide free, confidential, high-quality, and compassionate care. You do not need insurance to receive our free services. Just bring a photo ID with you to your first appointment.
