You are not alone. You decided to have sex with a girl who now may be the mother of your child. “WHAT DO I DO NOW?”
Before you freak out, here are a few steps to get you started.
- Find the nearest free, confidential pregnancy center. Go with the girl to obtain a free pregnancy test.
- Obtain ALL the facts before making any decision. A pregnancy center can provide BOTH the father and mother with information and resources to help you make an informed decision – a choice that you can both live with for the REST OF YOUR LIFE!
- Take some time to figure out what to do. DO NOT RUSH into any decision. This is a choice that will affect the REST OF YOUR LIFE, so you want to be sure it’s the right one.
- Help the pregnant girl apply for Insurance or Medicaid and make her first doctor’s appointment. Remember, pregnancy affects a woman’s body, so you want to be sure she is being cared for. Encourage her to drink plenty of water and begin taking prenatal vitamins, regardless of what outcome you choose for your baby.
Many thoughts are racing through your mind. So make sure you are educated on your choices.
