She’s pregnant. Now what? Here are three tips of what NOT to do:

1. Don’t bail. She needs you and you need to be a man. Running will only make the situation worse. 

2. Don’t pressure her. Applying pressure will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation. You will do well to work together as a team. 

3. Don’t forget. You have an active role in this situation. Listen to input as well as give your thoughts.
