How Do I Support My Friend Experiencing an Unexpected Pregnancy?

425-1980

The fact that you are searching for ways to support your friend experiencing an unexpected pregnancy online shows that you care. We want to offer some advice as your friend is facing a rollercoaster of emotions right now. Communicating that you are there for her is one of the greatest ways to show your support. 

Here are more tips when navigating this unexpected time with a friend. 

Have a Listening Ear

After hearing the news of pregnancy from your friend, you may feel like you want to respond with something comforting right away. While that can be tempting, try your best to listen and ask questions about her unique situation before chiming in.

 

Feel the situation and her body language to see if she’s ready to talk more or if she simply just wants to express how she’s feeling. Listening is more important than anything. 

 

If she does ask for your input, encourage her to the best of your ability. If she has pregnancy questions or questions about her options, direct her to a pregnancy center like ours, where she can explore all her options in a non-judgmental environment.

 

Go the Extra Mile

You know your friend best, and you know her favorite things. Cheer her up during this stressful time with kind gestures and things she loves. Maybe she loves dinner, movie nights, or a park walk with her favorite latte. Here are some more ideas:

  • Bring her flowers and dinner

  • Make her a spa basket 

  • Pick up her groceries/essentials for her

  • Spend quality time with her
