What are some ways to support a friend during a surprise pregnancy?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes things just … happen.  An unexpected pregnancy can be very difficult to deal with, which is why it’s crucial for you to be there for your friend almost every step of the way.  Here are some ways for you to give them that support:

1. Get excited:  There’s nothing you can change now, so you might as well look at it in a positive light.  Even though your pregnant friend might not be in the best situation to be having a baby, you can still be happy for them.

2. Help her do some shopping:  New baby means new things.  She’ll need new maternity clothes as well as baby supplies.  By helping her shop, it will be comforting knowing she has you there for her.

3. Stay over for a while:  There will be times in the pregnancy when your friend will need all the help she can get.  Stay over a couple nights of the week,  as she’ll know you’re there to help her out even with little things around the house.
