Dealing with an unplanned pregnancy can be a stressful time for a man. You may feel stressed, emotional, angry or upset.
- You might have told your family or friends and not got the reaction you had hoped for.
- You may not have spoken to anyone about it at all.
- You may not feel involved in the decision-making around the pregnancy.
- You might be confused about your rights and responsibilities.
Sometimes it can be more difficult to talk to those closest to you.
Talking to a counsellor can help.
