Receiving the news that your partner is unexpectedly pregnant can hit you like a ton of bricks. You may feel the pressure of responsibility, anxiety about the future, or concern for your partner. The most important thing to remember is that your partner is likely feeling all this as well, so your biggest job is to be there for her.

Willowbrook Women’s Center offers a supportive environment where your partner can get all her questions answered. Scheduling a no-cost appointment guarantees that our compassionate team will assist both of you throughout this period.

Put Your Feelings Aside

At least at the beginning, you should stay present in the moment and concern yourself with your partner. It’s counterproductive for both of you to overreact emotionally. Your first job is to be a rock for her to feel safe and not judged.

There is a lot to think about with pregnancy, such as your options: abortion, making an adoption plan, or parenting. Take a moment to register how each will change your life and affect your partner.

It’s best to get as much information as possible beforehand to be calm and collected when you start talking.

Take Your Time to Discuss Your Options

Rather than having one big conversation where you feel you need to make every decision right now, have shorter conversations. Emotions are probably running high, and you want to talk calmly, if possible.

Start by actively listening to your partner’s feelings and concerns. Tell her you heard what she said and relay her words back to her so she knows you understand. Then, be ready to share your feelings and thoughts on what you can do.

Be a Pillar of Support

Even the little things you do can make a big difference. Whether going to appointments, running errands, or helping with chores around the house, small acts of kindness will help uplift your partner and destress the situation.
