Facing pregnancy without the support of your partner can create feelings of isolation, anxiety, and uncertainty. These feelings can be magnified because you’re going through a pregnancy and are experiencing hormonal changes as a result.

It’s important to recognize the emotional complexities of this situation and to approach your next steps with compassion for yourself and a clear focus on what you can control.

You don’t have to do this by yourself. FirstLook Pregnancy Center is here for you to feel supported during this crucial time. We offer free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, STI testing, and more. Reach out to us today.

Open A Dialogue

It’s likely your partner’s natural reaction was shock and surprise, so consider giving them a little space before starting another conversation. 

When you’re ready, try to honestly discuss your feelings, expectations, and fears with your partner. Sometimes, initial reactions can change with open dialogue and time.

Connect With Loved Ones

If discussions become unproductive with your partner, it’s time to consider your loved ones. Building a strong support network is crucial during this time.

Friends, family members, or community support groups can offer emotional backing and practical assistance. These networks not only provide a sense of belonging but can also offer diverse perspectives and advice on handling unsupportive partners during pregnancy.

Get Informed

Learn about your options regarding pregnancy, parenting, adoption, and the resources available to you. Knowledge can empower you to make the best decisions for you.

Let us be the first step for you. We can point you to community referrals for needs such as housing, material items, and more. We’re also a community partner with Medicaid, which may be able to help you with financial and medical support.

Remember: The choice of how to proceed with your pregnancy is ultimately yours, and it should be made based on what you feel is best for your well-being and future.
