Help and Services for Men
When she comes to you and tells you she could be pregnant, it's natural to feel nervous or unsure. But whatever your situation, there are a few things you should always to do help. After all, you play a critical role in the next few days, weeks, and months. Your choices could have a big impact, so make sure you take them seriously.
How to Help
Make an Appointment
Call or (601) 799-2668 or schedule an appointment online for a free pregnancy test & ultrasound.
- We offer laboratory-quality urine pregnancy tests with immediate results.
- A positive test (including a home test) is an indication of pregnancy, but not a confirmation. The test result should be confirmed by an ultrasound exam.
- The exam will answer 3 important questions that are critical regardless of what options you both are considering:
- Is the pregnancy viable – that is, is the pregnancy in the uterus?
- Is there a heartbeat?
- How far along is she?
Come with her to the appointment. Even though she's the one who could be pregnant, you're both in this situation together. Being stressed or angry isn't going to benefit either of you.
Slow Down & Listen
One of the worst things you can do is be pushy or overbearing. Instead, try to slow down and take things one step at a time. Listen to her concerns and her feelings without being judgmental.
Get Outside Advice
We offer appointments with a trained advocate who can meet with you, listen to your concerns and provide answers to your questions. You can meet together or separately - whatever you're most comfortable with.
Be Available and Supportive
Unintended pregnancy may feel like a major roadblock for both of you. Pressuring her will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation. So be available – don’t check out. Work together as a team.
When facing an unplanned pregnancy, your concerns and decisions are important. We offer a safe, caring and confidential place to talk. Pregnancy Support Services experienced staff will listen and answer your questions whether you are considering abortion, adoption or parenting. Please contact us for free and confidential services.
