Do Research – We commend you for taking the initiative to read this page. Use us as a resource. Know your options and checkout the Fatherhood Initiative too.
Discuss It Together – Be honest and listen to each other without interrupting. Listen to how she is feeling, but then tell her how YOU are feeling, too!
Be Honest – Decide together how will you tell the people closest to you. Keeping secrets will only add stress to your situation.
Don’t Bail – You are in this together already. No matter the outcome, you will need each other for support.
Don’t Pressure Her – You may not come to terms with this at the same time. You may not want the same option, but be respectful during the process.
