Are you facing an unplanned pregnancy with your partner? Right now you may be feeling powerless. You might be feeling angry, scared, depressed, or numb. Culture says, “It’s her choice, not yours.” However, it is important to share your feelings with your partner and also listen to hers. Together, you can talk through your situation and make an informed decision together.
Sometimes people make a hasty decision and they try to please their partner, but they end up regretting their decision. Take the time to talk to people who can help. At Azar House, we are here to listen to you. We have male counselors on staff who can give you their perspective, as well as information on your options and how your opinion fits into her decision-making. You deserve to be heard, too.
Everything might be moving so fast, but remember, you have the time to step back and consider your next steps. This is a lifelong decision, so it’s important that you and your partner reach a decision that you are both confident in and can live with for years to come.
When you make an appointment at Azar House, we can give you information about abortion, adoption, and parenting. During this appointment, you and your partner can ask questions, talk about your opinions and feelings, and come to a decision that’s best for your unique situation. This is a great opportunity to understand the mental, emotional and physical changes that your partner is going through and it may help identify any mental or emotional changes you’re going through as well.
Dedicate yourself to helping one another during this time. You were both there in the beginning, why not continue to be there for her? Contact us today to schedule an appointment with a trusted staff member.
