How to tell your boyfriend you’re pregnant unplanned?
- Don’t wait too long to inform your parents, partner or ex-partner. The longer you wait, the harder this becomes.
- Indicate in advance that you want to discuss something important and make sure that you are somewhere where you will not be disturbed.
- Sometimes it is easier if a friend or other family member is present during the conversation . Sometimes it can even be someone from outside: a trusted person or external care provider. The emotions often flare up less when a ‘stranger’ is present. Initial responses or impulsive comments that people regret afterwards are less likely to be said.
First the emotions, then the practical matters
There is a good chance that your (former) partner and your parents might respond surprised or even indignant as the first reaction. They may have to get used to the idea, which is understandable. First give them the opportunity to express their emotions .
