APPOINTMENT

Medical Consultation

At the appointment, she will be provided a lab-quality pregnancy test first. If positive, you will be offered an ultrasound. A free ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along the pregnancy is. If considering abortion, an ultrasound will provide important information that will tell you more about the pregnancy and available abortion options. All services are free and confidential.

→ Talk with her

Ask her how she’s feeling and listen for ways you can help. Most importantly, simply be there for her. Sometimes, the best way to help is to just present with her.

→ Talk to someone you trust and respect

In addition to keeping the lines of communication open between the two of you, it can also be helpful to discuss the situation with parents and others who are invested in your lives. In some cases, keeping the pregnancy and your emotions a secret can add stress in a time where staying calm is necessary.

→ Be Open and Honest

Be honest with her and yourself. Own and share at all times how you feel. You’ll be surprised at how much it will help her to know that you may share the same concerns.

→ Get Help

Learn about where she can go for help during her unplanned pregnancy. Encourage her to explore all of her pregnancy options before making a decision. Lowcountry Pregnancy Center provides free pregnancy options counseling to women and men in our community. Offer to come with her to the appointment if she would like you to.

Know your options. Be educated.
