She’s Not Alone. And Neither Are You!
You want to “do the right thing.” You want to support her as best you can, but you aren’t sure what that looks like. Guess what? You’re not alone in being confused, overwhelmed, and maybe even afraid. AbbaCare is here for BOTH of you. If you plan to come with your partner for her pregnancy options appointment, let us know when you book, and we’ll have a men’s coach on hand to talk with you as well. That way you can BOTH decide what’s best.
What Not To Do:
Don’t run and hide. You have responsibilities, and we can help you meet them.
Don’t pressure her. You’re a team. Becoming educated on the pregnancy options is the first step.
Don’t be silent or uninvolved. It’s your right and your responsibility to care for her, and to be a part of these important changes in your lives.
Don’t let your fear of the unknown overwhelm you. Talk to us. We have male counselors who can listen and help.
What To Do:
Communicate. Listen when she talks to you about her pregnancy options, and let her know your thoughts and concerns. Our trained client advocates and men’s coaches can help you think through options together.
Take responsibility. Advise her to take a medical test to confirm her pregnancy. At AbbaCare, we offer free pregnancy tests provided and read by our registered nurses.
Educate yourself. Learn more about pregnancy options in order to make an informed decision. At AbbaCare, we will provide you with all the information at no cost. We do not profit from any decision the two of you decide to make.
Protect Yourself and Her From Medical Complications. Before you make any pregnancy decisions, it is essential to have an ultrasound to find out for sure how far along she is and to make sure the pregnancy is viable and in the uterus. It’s also important that she has been tested for any possible STDs. Unknown STD’s can increase the risk of medical complications during or after an abortion. AbbaCare provides free STI/STD testing and treatment – for BOTH of you.
