Perhaps you’ve just found out your partner is pregnant. Even though she is the one who’s carrying the child, you may feel confused and uncertain, too. You might even be feeling a little scared because you’re not sure what the next step should be. 

Here’s some quick advice that may be of benefit to you right now:

The Do’s

  • Listen. The situation involves more than just you.
  • Stay calm. She needs your support now more than ever. She may be carrying the baby, but you are BOTH parents, and regardless of your relationship in the future, that baby needs you too.
  • Talk about it. Talk, not only with each other, but prepare to talk with parents and others close to the situation. Hiding the news from people who can genuinely help you only increases the stress.
  • Gather the facts. Get information and seek wise counsel so you can make the best decision for you both.
  • Express yourself honestly. It’s normal to have feelings of anger, frustration and fear. Make sure she knows she is not alone.

The Don’ts 

  • Don’t bail. The more you run from this, the harder it becomes to think and act clearly.
  • Don’t pressure her. Applying pressure will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation. Both of you would do well to work as a team.
  • Don’t forget. You have a very active role in this situation. Listen to input as well as express your thoughts.

Post-Abortion Trauma Support

Post-abortion stress is the inability to process the stress and emotions associated with your partner’s abortion decision. This may be an immediate or delayed reaction that can surface anytime in a person’s life. When it does resurface, it can be confusing, painful and overwhelming.

Some men experience strong negative emotions after abortion. This psychological response is known as Post-Abortion Stress (PAS). Men struggle with the fact they are systematically denied the right to be involved in decisions regarding abortion. This powerlessness takes its toll not only on the male self-image, but may bring on role conflict, excessive guilt, depression and, sometimes, the end of the relationship with your partner.

Help is available, if you are experiencing post abortion trauma. You can speak with a therapist, contact a Post Abortion Support Group, or contact FRCZ and journey through the Bible study
