We understand how sharing your pregnancy decision details with your partner right now can be stressful. You might have questions like:
- How will my partner react?
- Will he try to change my mind?
- What if he wants me to continue my pregnancy?
- Is the decision up to both of us?
These are all valid questions. While it’s important to hear your partner out, the decision is up to you at the end of the day.
Why Clear Communication is Key
It’s always best to communicate clearly about your pregnancy with your partner. He will be greatly affected by whatever decision you make next.
Give your partner space to react to your thoughts about your pregnancy decision. Try your best to take in what he says and listen well. We know your relationship may seem complicated right now, but it’s best to remain open-minded through this decision-making process.
Do You Feel Unsafe?
If your hesitancy to talk to your partner about your pregnancy decision has to do with your safety, you are not obligated to share it with him. Your safety is a top priority, and help is available.
If your partner makes you feel unsafe, contact the National Domestic Abuse Hotline. A representative can assist you with resources that will help you find safety. You are not alone.
