Finding Out Your Girlfriend Is Pregnant
Two days have passed since your girlfriend told you she was pregnant. You spent the last two days angry about the situation, thinking about what to do next. This was not part of your plan and you are feeling the pressure. Not only do you have to consider your own future, but also your girlfriend’s and now a child’s. You consider all this as you and your girlfriend sit in the waiting room at Advice & Aid Pregnancy Centers. You came to be supportive, but you have no idea what to do. Your girlfriend is scared and you want to be there for her but honestly, you’re scared too. Someone who called themselves an advocate, led your girlfriend into a counseling room and now you are sitting alone with your thoughts.
Someone To Offer Help To You As Well
Shortly after, a man walks in and asks how you are doing. He listens as you share some of your concerns. He shares similar information with you that your girlfriend is receiving. He gives accurate information about the effects of abortion and shares adoption and parenting as alternative options. He confirms what you already knew; you need to care and be present during this difficult time. Finally, he lets you know that you are not alone. The pressure seems to subside a little bit as he assures you, “you don’t have to go through this alone.”
Through the information and compassion you both received at Advice & Aid, you decide to join the Journey’s program which allows you to ask questions, learn, and receive support through the pregnancy process. It is here that you and your girlfriend decide to be parents. You learn how to better support your girlfriend during this emotional process and how to prepare to be a dad.
Your Place For Support
After your beautiful child is born, you enroll in the Bridges program. At Bridges you and your girlfriend find great information about parenting, budgeting, and health. You also get to know other moms and dads with similar stories. You and your girlfriend earn points that allow you to “buy” much needed baby items. You find support and encouragement from the male volunteers and your peers. With the help of Advice & Aid, you won’t have to go through this process alone.
If you are a man who finds himself in a situation where your girlfriend is pregnant and you don’t know where to turn, let us help. We have a male advocate on staff who is here specifically for guys just like you – to listen to, give you options, and provide support for both you and your girlfriend.
