We believe fathers are so important in the lives of their children. At Heart of Tioga, we are here to support you, the expecting father, too. We have caring, nonjudgmental men and women who can answer your questions and guide you and your partner as you make your pregnancy decision.
If you think that she is pregnant, here are some tips that may help:
Listen: the situation involves more than just you.
Stay calm: she needs your support now more than ever
Talk about it: not only with each other, but prepare to talk to your parents and/or others close to the situation. Hiding the news from those close to you only increases the stress.
Gather all the facts: get all the information and seek wise counsel so you can make the best decision for both of you.
Express yourself honestly: it is normal to have feelings of fear, frustration or even anger. But make sure she knows that she is not alone.
Bail: the more you deny or put off talking about it, the harder it becomes to think and act clearly.
Pressure her: applying pressure may only push her away. You will do well to work together as a team.
Forget: you have a very active role in this situation. Listen to input and don’t be afraid to share your thoughts.
