Discussing the Future with the Birth Father

If you are unmarried and have just learned that you’re pregnant, then your first thoughts are probably about the baby’s father. Should you tell him? What will he say? Will he want to be involved or even want to marry you? Every woman hopes in her heart that the baby’s father will want to be there and be a part of the pregnancy and your lives once the baby is born. But sadly, that’s not always the case.

With so much birth control readily available and all the information out there on birth control, you’d think the number of unplanned pregnancies would be way down. A new study reported on in USA Today says that at least half of all pregnancies in the 29 states surveyed were unplanned or ill-timed. That’s an astounding number when you think about it.

Many women who find themselves in that situation are not comfortable with abortion. There have been too many very sad stories of how abortion has had a negative impact on the lives of the women who have chosen it. They report years of depression stemming from their decision to abort their child.

This leaves you with the choice to simply give birth to your baby and raise it or give it up for adoption. Many women are choosing the adoption process these days because it gives them peace of mind knowing that they gave their baby a chance to live. It also gives a loving family the amazing gift of parenthood. There’s really no down side to adoption.

After learning about the unplanned pregnancy, some birth fathers are supportive and willing to be a part of the whole process. If this happens in your situation, then you and the child’s father may go ahead and decide on adoption anyway. Sometimes people just know in their hearts that they aren’t ready for parenting. It’s best to be honest with yourself and allow the birth father to be honest as well about his feelings.
