- She's Pregnant, Now What? -




For Guys

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?

  • Decide to speak up and participate in the decision making process. Let her know that you do care and that you want to help her not feel alone in this.
  • Determine to educate yourself on all of the options and share the facts with her as well. Whatever choice she makes could have lasting effects on both of you.
  • Dedicate yourself to supporting, encouraging and standing by her. This will likely be a difficult time for both of you and she needs you.

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.

For Parents

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.

Remember...

  • Your daughter needs you to support her right now. She needs to know that you guys will get through this…together.
  • You can be her advocate. As people find out they will have their own advice and opinions. Stand beside her and be a voice for her, looking out for your family’s best interest.
  • You can get through this. Although this may have come as a surprise to you, be encouraged – many families have been through this and have come out stronger on the other side.
  • We are here to help. Don’t face this alone. We are here with the resources and support you need to determine your next steps. Call us today at 941.408.7100.
