Your partner has just told you that she’s pregnant and she is weighing out her options. What are your responsibilities? How should you help? You have a lot to think about.

Here are some Do’s and Don’ts to help you through this:


  • Do make her health your top priority.
  • Do encourage her to get a sonogram.
  • Do talk openly and honestly about all the options.
  • Do stay involved if she does decide to parent.


  • Don’t assume your opinion doesn’t matter.
  • Don’t pressure her into a decision.
  • Don’t assume her decision won’t affect you.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Remember the decision is ultimately hers to make, but you should be able to express your opinion. Real Options provides trained male patient advocates to educate you and offer support. Schedule an appointment with your partner today.

We are here for you.
