Sharing the News About Pregnancy 

Thinking about what you want to say to your partner will help you feel more prepared for the conversation. Some things you might want to consider:

What pregnancy option are you considering and why? 

Your partner will have their own feelings and opinions about the pregnancy, so knowing what you’re thinking will help you understand where you both differ.

Will your partner support your decision? 

Giving your partner time to process the news is critical, but you will eventually want to discuss where your partner is at with his thought process.

If your partner doesn’t support your pregnancy decision, how will you respond? 

Thinking about this will help you feel more emotionally prepared in case your partner doesn’t support the pregnancy choice you’re considering. Learn about his point of view, especially if you value his opinions.

If you have any hesitations about your safety when sharing about pregnancy and what options you’re considering, bring a support person or tell them over the phone if needed. If you ever feel unsafe in a situation, contact the National Domestic Violence hotline
