For Men

You may have mixed emotions. We’re here to help you.


Specifically for Men to Think About

So you've just found out she's pregnant...

We understand that an unexpected pregnancy can leave you feeling overwhelmed, scared, depressed, happy, excited, confused and upset all at the same time. Perhaps you and your partner have been together for a long time or just met. It’s hard to know how to support her when you’re still trying to process the situation yourself.

Keep in mind that telling you may be one of the hardest things she has to do and she is probably facing mixed emotions like you. If she has chosen to include you then realise your support is extremely valuable to her.

Depending on your situation there can be all sorts of questions:

  • Is she really pregnant? Am I ready to be a parent?

  • Is the baby mine? How connected do I have to or want to be?

  • What are the choices now?  What say do I have in those choices?

  • Can our relationship last though this?  What exactly is our relationship?

  • What are my legal rights? Is this going to cost me?

  • What kind of support is there? What’s involved with adoption?

  • What does she expect or want from me? 

  • What’s the process with choosing an abortion? For her?  For me?
