It is NORMAL to feel scared and wonder what you're going to do. It's ok to feel that you don't want her to be pregnant.
The two of you can do this. The woman in your life needs you to support her by talking to her and letting her know she has options. You can help her make positive decisions that both of you will be comfortable with. We can help you. Give us a call!
- LISTEN: She's scared too.
- STAY CALM: She needs your support big time right now.
- TALK ABOUT IT: Not only with her, but you will probably need to talk with her parents and yours. Think about other people who you trust.
- GO SLOWLY: Get all the information you need to make an informed decision. You've got time. Don't be in a rush to make a big decision. Seek out a spiritual leader or a person who gives wise advice.
- TALK ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL: It's normal to be scared, overwhelmed, be angry or frustrated. You are not alone and she needs to feel she is not alone.
- COME IN TO TALK: At the Hope Clinic, we can give you facts, let you talk about your situation.
- DON'T BAIL: Running from this just makes it harder to think and act in everyone's best interest.
- DON'T PRESSURE HER: Now is the time to talk and work through this together.
- DON'T FORGET: That you played a role in this situation.
