Society will often tell you that as a man you have no say in a woman’s pregnancy. But the reality is that you play an important role in helping your partner make the best decision about the pregnancy you share. Your partner needs you now more than ever, and your support is important in letting her know she’s not alone during this time. In fact, having someone to support her is one of the best things for a woman who is facing an unexpected pregnancy and trying to figure out what to do.
But just like her, you can also be filled with anxiety and overwhelmed with the thought of an unexpected pregnancy. It’s not unusual to feel afraid and confused, even angry that this happened to you.
