How do you support your partner through an unplanned pregnancy?
Finding out you’re pregnant when it’s not planned can certainly be a shock. Here are some ways to support your partner when the event isn’t part of your calendar:
1. Make plans: You may not have had plans to have a baby in the first place, but now that you’re having one, it’s time to nail down some plans. Talk it over and encourage your pregnant partner to calm down and get organized.
2. See a therapist: This may sound extreme, but it never hurts to unleash your feelings to an objective third party. Just letting out your fears about this unplanned period of time will help you cope.
3. Be supportive: Perhaps this may seem obvious, but being supportive every step of the way through an unplanned pregnancy is priceless. Just knowing that you are there for her to lean on will help immensely.
