You aren’t alone! You can get through this! It’s vitally important that you receive the support you need emotionally and in a safe environment where your concerns can be heard.
Try to slow down. You have time to understand exactly what your challenges are and you can successfully overcome them with support and education.
Speak with the mother of your baby and listen to her heart. Keep the lines of communication open with her. Allow the mother of your baby to have a voice. She carries your child in her womb and the impact on her is as overwhelming to her as it is to you, if not more.
It’s important for you to know there is someone here for you and for her. We want to listen to you and help you. Clearly, she will need to know you’re supportive of her and with honest and open communication, you can help her understand this is true.
If you’re concerned about your parents or her parents finding out about the pregnancy, you’re concerns are valid. Abel is a place where we can give you tools which will help you navigate this very delicate situation with everyone involved.
Abel offers a plethora of information which will help you make an educated decision about the choices you are facing. Seeking this information will empower you and give you tools you may not have at this point in time.
Please Remember: Pressuring the mother of your baby may not be the most productive way to deal with your current situation. You are in this together and the changes coming are going to affect you and her. The responsibilities are now equally designated to you the father, and her the mother of this brand-new life. And please do remember, we are here for you.
