Are you feeling anxious about breaking the news of your pregnancy to your parents? That’s completely natural. An unexpected pregnancy can bring a flood of questions and leave you feeling overwhelmed.

It’s normal to worry about how your parents will react, but sharing the news sooner rather than later can make a big difference. Keeping it to yourself can feel like carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders.

When you finally tell your parents, it can relieve this feeling, allowing you to feel lighter and more at ease. Let’s discuss some tips on how to break the news.

Mentally Prepare

First, take a deep breath and remind yourself that you can handle this.

Understand what you’re experiencing and what you need. Are you looking for their advice, emotional support, or just someone to listen?

Clarifying your own feelings and expectations can help steer the conversation in a positive and constructive direction. Remember, their initial reaction will likely be shock. Be prepared for this, but don’t put too much stock in it; they may need time to process.

Take this time to get informed about your options, such as abortion, adoption, and parenting. This is something you don’t have to do alone. We at the Southern Ohio Pregnancy Center can help you get information about these different paths.

Choose The Right Setting

Picking the right time and place is crucial to fostering a comfortable environment that can help promote a better reaction.

Visiting your parents at their home may be the best choice, as you can leave if you need to take a break to revisit the conversation later.  You could also choose a public place if you’re more worried about how they’ll take the news.

The timing is also essential. If your parents work, it’s best to choose a day and time when they’re off and don’t have to worry about everyday stressors. 

All of these factors will give you more control when it comes to delivering the news.
