Generally, people consider pregnancy a "woman's issue." However, the Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center recognizes that men need education and support before making important life choices regarding a pregnancy. Your partner is looking for your support now more than ever. Support does not mean silence - assure her you will stand beside her. Research your options and pregnancy information together. Your voice is important.
Our services to you:
- When you come in for a pregnancy test, we have men on staff who are willing to meet with you and talk through what you are facing. It is common to feel afraid, frustrated, discouraged, and even angry. We take time to discuss your options with you and answer any questions you may have.
- If you choose parenting, we have a Fatherhood program through our LifeSteps outreach. Referrals can be made to our LifeSteps program for parenting support from the time you realize you are expecting a child until the child is two years of age. We offer parenting classes and lessons just for dads - as well as classes you can take with your partner. Through your participation, you can earn a free crib, carseat, baby clothing and other baby necessities.
- Some STDs can cause a lot of damage and can be passed to your partner without your knowledge. You do not have to have symptoms to be contagious; you can spread the disease at any time. The Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center offers free testing and treatment for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. HIV screening will be available starting Fall 2014.
