For the Dad

She called and said the test was positive!

Now What?

The Do's

  1. Listen to her. It is not just you, it is not just her. There are three of you.

  2. Be calm - your support is what she needs right now. She is not the only parent to this baby.

  3. Talk - not just to each other, but seek counsel from parents and people you respect. There will be increased stress if you try to keep it a secret.

  4. Get the facts - abortion is not as easy as it may appear. You need to make the best decision for everyone involved.

  5. Be honest - you may feel angry, frustrated or fearful. Make sure she knows she is not alone

The Don'ts

  1. Don't bail - it will just be harder to deal with if you run from this and you won't be able to think clearly.

  2. Don't pressure - pressuring her is only going to push her away. You need to work together.

  3. Don't forget - you are a part of this and it will affect your future as well.
