It’s OK to be overwhelmed. No matter what your relationship is like now, you’re in this together. Once you have all the facts, then you can make an informed decision together.

Make an appointment at Metroplex Women’s Clinic for your partner to have a free laboratory-quality pregnancy test to confirm the pregnancy.
