So you think she might be pregnant…
Stay calm. She needs your support now more than ever.
Talk about it. Talk with each other and prepare to talk with parents and others who are close to the situation.
Gather all the facts. Get all the information and seek wise counsel so you can make the best decision for both of you. The staff at Outreach Clinic is here to help you make a plan and explore your options.
Express yourself honestly. It is normal to have feelings of anger, frustration and fear. But, make sure she knows she is not alone.
Get involved. She may be carrying the baby, but both of you share the responsibility for this situation.
The first thing you need to do is find out if she is really pregnant. Then you need to learn about your options. Outreach Clinic provides free pregnancy tests and ultrasound that will provide answers to many of the questions you have right now.
You need to stay calm. She needs your support. To help show your support, go with her for the pregnancy test appointment. If she is pregnant, she is already being overwhelmed by hormone changes that can have a great effect on her. Having your support will reassure her that you care. She may be carrying the baby, but you are BOTH parents, and regardless of your relationship in the future, that baby needs you too.
This is a difficult and overwhelming situation. You need accurate information on all your options in order to make an informed decision. We are here to provide that information on abortion, adoption and parenting.
