What should I do when my friends do not agree with my decision to keep the baby?
Remember that the decision is yours, that you have many options, and it’s ultimately up to you what you decide to do.
Think about your friendships: are they judging you or just trying to look out for you? Consider what they have to say, don’t just write them off, especially if they seem genuinely concerned.
If you’re set in your choice, express your hope that you can still stay friends and that they’ll grow to accept your decision and support you through it.
People react differently to situations like this, and it’s best to remember that people process things in their own way.
If your friends have a negative reaction, give them time and don’t do anything to turn the conversation into an argument. Say you need some space, walk away, and try to stay calm. There’s enough to worry about as it is, and you deserve to have people on your side. If things do not improve, continue to focus on yourself and the health of your baby. You and your baby’s health are your number one priority now.
