Do I have to tell my partner I want an abortion?
The decision of abortion is an important and serious choice to make as you navigate an unexpected pregnancy. It can sometimes be difficult to talk about this issue with a partner. Because of the sensitivity of the topic, we have some tips that can help guide you in this important conversation.
“I just need someone to talk to.”
We know that information about pregnancy, reproductive health, abortion, adoption, and all the options available to women can be very overwhelming. We’re here if you also just need someone to talk to.
A Safe Space
“I’m scared and confused…”
“I can’t do this alone…”
“I have no support and no one who understands…”
These are just some of the many thoughts you may be having if you think you’re pregnant and it wasn’t planned. You’re pretty sure you don’t want this, and you’re almost certain the father of the baby doesn’t want this either.
Co-Parenting the Healthy Way
Co-parenting is a term that describes more than one person caring for a child. Typically, those who choose to co-parent were together at one point, but are now separated or divorced. These people still interact with each other to raise their children. Even when sharing the responsibility of parenting may seem impossible, there’s hope.
Financial Stress and Pregnancy
One of the most common pregnancy worries is money. It’s usually the first place your thoughts go when you find out you’re pregnant. The Chequamegon Pregnancy Center can help you through this process.
Health and Wellness During Pregnancy
The word “health” may make you think of drinking water, eating vegetables, or going for a run. While these things are important, being healthy is so much more than this. Our bodies are complex, and there are actually six areas of health and wellness that every person has. Each area should be taken care of to make sure that someone feels their best. All of these areas can completely change in exciting ways once pregnancy (whether it was planned or unplanned) occurs.
All About Adoption
Although adoption isn’t always an easy decision, learning more about it can help you decide if it’s the best choice for both you and your baby. You will always be the parents that gave your child life, but sometimes choosing a life for them that you know you cannot provide is the best way to show them how much you care.
How Do I Tell Others About My Pregnancy?
Whether your pregnancy was planned or unplanned, it can seem frightening to tell others about it; your parents, friends, family members, or even your significant other. Maybe you’re worried about how they will react or how they will treat you after they find out. The good news is there are ways to make this process easier for everyone.
What Can Our Pregnancy Center Do For Men?
It can be easy to assume pregnancy centers only exist to help women and children, but it’s not always the case. Men can benefit greatly from our services at the Chequamegon Pregnancy Center (CPC).
What is an Ultrasound? And Three Reasons You Should Have One
You may have heard the word ultrasound before, and know that it sometimes relates to pregnancy, but what exactly is an ultrasound? An ultrasound is a device that uses sound waves to produce images of the inside of your body. These images are used to diagnose and treat different conditions, and in the case of pregnancy, to see your baby.
