She said she might be pregnant…
1. Make an appointment to find out if she really is pregnant
A positive pregnancy test (including those taken at home) suggests a high probability that she is pregnant. However, the result should be confirmed by a limited obstetric ultrasound. This can answer three major questions:
- Is the pregnancy in the uterus?
- How far along is she?
- Is there a fetal heartbeat?
This information is critical regardless of what options you both may be considering.
2. Come with her to the appointment
Our trained male client advocates are available to meet with you and provide answers to your questions.
3. Support her.
Be available. Don’t “check out”. Stay involved. Listen.
Allow her to talk about her feelings and fears. Assure her that you hear her and are there for her.
