Finding out you’re pregnant can feel overwhelming, especially as you think about telling your boyfriend and family. However, some strategies you take will make telling them the news easier.

Learn About Your Pregnancy Options First

It’s critical that you make your pregnancy decision for yourself without being influenced by your family or partner. 

To make an informed decision, you must learn all you can about each option and ensure your questions are answered. 

Your three pregnancy options are parenting, adoption, or abortion. At Alabama Pregnancy Test Center, we can provide accurate information about these options and allow you to explore what they might look like in your life.

Learning all you can about your options will help you have more confidence when telling your boyfriend and family. You will not only be able to tell them the news but also inform them about what option you’re considering moving forward. 

Decide When and Where to Tell Them

Where do you feel most comfortable? In public? In the comfort of your home? This is where you’ll want to tell your boyfriend and family the news. Choosing where you feel most comfortable will help alleviate some of the anxiety.

Choosing when to tell them is also vital. Choose a time when your boyfriend and family are least busy so they can give you their undivided attention for this conversation. For example, telling them on the weekend might be better if weeknights are busy due to school, work, etc.

You’re Not Alone

Telling your boyfriend and family you’re pregnant is a huge step, but you’re not alone in this process. Sometimes, it can help to talk to someone else first to sort through your feelings beforehand. At Alabama Pregnancy Test Center, we’re here for you.
