Help Your Partner
Your partner is likely facing many different physical changes and emotions right now. The best thing you can do is be there for her. Here are some practical ways you can do this:
- Accompany your partner at all doctors appointments
- Ensure she has what she needs to feel healthy—including vitamins, food, etc.
- Listen to her concerns and help her strategize what to do next.
Another way to encourage your partner is to help look out for her health and safety. No matter which option she is considering or planning to move forward with, ensuring she schedules an ultrasound is the best first step. An ultrasound can reveal important information she needs to know—including the age, location, and viability of the pregnancy (the likelihood that the pregnancy will continue). This first step of having an ultrasound and obtaining the information listed above will help her determine the next available steps
To help your partner decide what option is best for her, let her talk through her worries about each choice. It can also be beneficial to speak with a professional third party who is not financially invested in your decision so they can help answer your questions. At Your Options Medical, we offer the space and time you both need to explore your options.
An unplanned pregnancy can cause you to feel many different emotions at once, and everything you’re feeling is normal. But the most essential thing to do is stand by your partner and offer your presence and encouragement. At Your Options Medical, we provide free services and resources that can help you decide how best to move forward. Call us today at 508-251-9022 to schedule a free, confidential appointment.
