Fathers – you play such an important role in the life of your partner and baby during the pregnancy.

You may be feeling worried too. If you are unsure how you can best help your partner, our male HOPE Advocates are here to help you start to talk about it. 

They can offer information, answer questions and help you think through your responsibilities and the help available.

If you feel that you have no say, that is very difficult. However often a partner wants you to be involved.

When relationships are difficult, it's easy to pull away and not talk. We can guess what the other thinks or feels, and get it wrong.

Where possible: 

  • Listen to each other – do you know her thoughts and feelings? She may assume what yours are.

  • Get more informed –  on abortion and your baby, to reflect on how a decision might impact you all. 

  • Find support – perhaps someone can help you both talk it through. (We offer to help find some local support.)

 God is a Heavenly Father to all those who come to Him. He is full of patience, love and forgiveness.

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him; for He knows how we are formed, He remembers that we are dust. Psalm 103:13-14, the Bible
