If you are faced with an unexpected pregnancy, the decision about how to move forward is yours alone. However, telling your partner what you’re considering can be important, especially if you plan to stay together.

 Continue reading to learn more about things to consider when determining if telling your partner is the right choice. Or, if you’d like to talk to someone in person about your pregnancy options or find free resources, contact Hope Women’s Clinic to schedule an appointment free and confidential. 

Do you and your partner plan to stay together?

 If you and your partner plan to stay together, it’s essential to keep honesty and open lines of communication. This means telling your partner what you’re thinking and letting them share their feelings about your decision.

 If your partner does not agree with an abortion, it is essential to listen to their reasons so that they feel heard and understood. While only you can make the pregnancy decision that’s right for you, listening to your partner will help you understand where they’re coming from. 

Are you afraid for your safety?

 If you fear for your safety, telling your partner may not be the best idea. Or if you tell your partner, it will be essential to tell them in public.

 If you are considering abortion because you are in a dangerous life situation, there are resources available to help you choose parenthood and adoption (your other pregnancy options) and keep you safe. Contact us today to connect with one of our caring team members and learn more. 

Have all your questions been answered?

 Learning everything you can about your pregnancy options is essential before making a final decision. At Hope Women’s Clinic we provide free resources and services to give you the information you need to make an informed decision. 

Some questions to consider include:

 Do I understand the physical and mental health risks associated with abortion?

What would my life be like if I choose to be a parent or adopt?

How would I feel if I chose abortion? Adoption? Paternity?

Do I know what resources are available to help me if I choose to become a parent or adopt?
