How do I tell my same-sex partner I am ready for a baby?
Having a baby is a big step in any relationship. Consider yours and your partner’s current situation (i.e. financial, living, working, the quality of your relationship) and whether or not a baby would be a good addition right now.
Think about how your partner handles conversations like this and about how receptive they’d be to having a child.
Tell them you’ve been thinking of the future and have become excited about having a baby together.
Ask to research your options together and visit a health care provider about finding something that works for you both.
If the time isn’t right, ask when they’d be open to talking about it—if they are at all. Give them time, and consider the next steps for your relationship if your partner doesn’t want a baby.
