How can men support their partners ?
  • Listen to your partner. Almost everyone will have an opinion about her pregnancy. Make sure she’s had a chance to express her thoughts.

  • Help her to think through the pros and cons of the pregnancy.

  • Let her know what you think and feel.

  • Encourage her to go to an appropriate agency that will help her to make up her own mind about the pregnancy, free of pressure

  • Accompany her to speak to her GP or family planning clinic so that she can talk to a professional. Remember that most professionals will want to spend some time talking to her on her own.

  • Help her break the news of her pregnancy to other family members if she is worried about their response.

  • Encourage her to make the decision that is right for her.

  • Find out relevant information about her options.

  • Be realistic about what support you are able to give her
