What Can I Do if My Partner Doesn’t Support My Pregnancy?

Discovering that your partner does not support your pregnancy can be emotionally challenging.  You may feel like this complicates your pregnancy options and your future plans. 

You should know you don’t have to do this alone. HeartReach Center is here every step of the way during this time with free and confidential services, support, and information.  Reach out to us today to start your journey.

Continue reading to learn more about what you can do in this situation.

Open A Dialogue With Your Partner

Try to have an open and honest conversation with your partner about your feelings, fears, and expectations. Sometimes, the lack of support may stem from worries or misunderstandings that can be resolved through dialogue.

You may not be able to change your partner’s mind, but clarity and closure will come from this.  Ultimately, you may need to make a decision about your relationship and its future. Consider what’s best for you and your pregnancy, both in the short and long term.

No matter what the outcome, remember that this is your pregnancy, and no one should make you feel any other way. 

Finding Support Systems

It’s possible you already have people in your life who can lift up your situation.  Family and friends can offer a great support system. 

Whether it’s just talking through your issues or offering a little financial assistance, you’d be surprised how much your friends and family may already want to help.

Even if you don’t have a good network of family and friends, you can look to support groups, counseling, or your spiritual community. To start, HeartReach Center offers classes and mentoring with trained volunteers. 

These are great ways to meet others like you and get guided discussions to address your feelings and answer your burning questions.

Navigating The Road Ahead

Without the support of your partner, you may be wondering what to do next. You have options available to you: parenting, adoption, and abortion. You’ll want to be informed about all these choices with a medical staff. 

It’s best to start by confirming your pregnancy and receiving an ultrasound scan. This process will give you critical information such as your pregnancy’s viability, gestational age, and location. It’s a great starting point to clarify your medical condition and open your options moving forward.

HeartReach Center offers these services and more free to you. Our trained medical staff can prepare you with all the information you need to make an informed decision. You can also discover medical referrals, educational opportunities, and resources available.
