for friends“I’m pregnant…”

How will you react when your friend finds out she’s pregnant?

An unplanned pregnancy can be scary. She needs to know she is not alone. She can get through this, and you will be there to help along the way.

Here’s how you can help your friend, family member or girlfriend know she’s not alone:

What to do:

  • Talk with her and listen to her. Ask her how she’s feeling. Sometimes, the best way to help is to just be with her.
  • Offer to support her as she shares the news with the baby’s father and/or family members.
  • Learn about where she can go for support during her unplanned pregnancy. Call Real Options today.

What not to do:

  • Don’t judge her. Be a safe person for her. Stay positive and encouraging!
  • Don’t pressure her. She has difficult choices to make and she needs to know you’ll be there for her.
