I Think She’s Pregnant, Now What?

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.

If you need help dealing with the realities of an unplanned pregnancy, we are hear to listen and answer your questions regarding your rights and pregnancy options.

Whether you are considering abortion, adoption or parenting, please contact us for free and confidential services.

What do I need to do?

The first step is to make an appointment with your partner to find out 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?

Call or schedule an appointment online for a free laboratory-quality urine pregnancy test & OB Ultrasound.

She’s Pregnant, How Do I Support Her?

Stay Calm

Come with her to the appointment. Even though she’s the one who could be pregnant, you’re both in this situation together. Being stressed or angry isn’t going to benefit either of you.

Slow Down & Listen

One of the worst things you can do is be pushy or overbearing. Instead, try to slow down and take things one step at a time. Listen to her concerns and her feelings without being judgmental.

Get Outside Advice

We offer appointments with a trained advocate who can meet with you, listen to your concerns and provide answers to your questions. You can meet together or separately – whatever you’re most comfortable with.

Be Available & Supportive
An unplanned pregnancy may feel like a major roadblock for both of you. Pressuring her will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation. So be available – don’t check out. Work together as a team.
