Men need support too. With an unplanned pregnancy comes so many questions as you seek to understand and support your partner. It’s nerve-racking and sometimes overwhelming. Our caring staff at Alpha Omega Center are here to support men every step of the way. Even if your partner is not interested in making an appointment you are welcome to get in touch with us and schedule an appointment.
How Do You Support Your Partner?
Listen. The situation involves more than just you.
Offer her support. She needs you now to be in her corner looking out for her best interests.
Talk about it – not only with each other, but prepare to talk with parents and others close to the situation. Hiding the news from people who can genuinely help you only increases the stress.
Gather the facts. Get all the information and seek wise counsel so you can make the best decision for you both.
Express yourself honestly – it’s normal to have feelings of anger, frustration and fear. But make sure she knows she is not alone.
Don’t bail. The more you run from this, the harder it becomes to think and act clearly.
Don’t pressure her. Applying pressure will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation. Both of you would do well to work as a team
Are you parenting a child?
We have a Fathers in Action program! This is a free mentoring program where men have the chance to talk with an experienced dad; someone who has walked the road and has great advice to offer. Men can enroll in this program alone or along with New Beginnings. Through Fathers in Action, dad cash can be earned to help get items for children.
