5 Steps That Need to be Taken When You Are Considering Leaving Your Abusive Partner While Pregnant

5 Steps That Need to be Taken When You Are Considering Leaving Your Abusive Partner While Pregnant

Staying healthy is an essential part of being pregnant.  If your spouse is abusive, whether verbally or physical, you need to consider your options of leaving. Stress is not good for you or your baby and there is a great chance that things will become worse.

1. Getting Back to You

In order to get “you” back, you have to be willing and ready to walk away from the situation. Although you may feel that things will get better with time, these chances are slim to none. You need to be able to walk away from the situation for the health of you and your unborn baby.

2. Setting the Limits

Emotional outbursts and criticism can take an extreme toll on you. In this instance, you will need to let your partner know that you are willing to discuss any concerns that he has, but there is no need to attack you to get your point across.

3. Consider All of Your Options

A lot of women are concerned about everything else but themselves. There is nothing wrong with being concerned about your partner because a relationship requires two people. In the same instance, he will need to understand what you are going through and the things that you are currently feeling.

4. Talk to Someone

Talking to someone can help a lot more than you imagine. Hopefully, you and your mate are able to come to a conclusion about the events that are taking place. Keep in mind that while being pregnant is stressful upon you, it is stressful for your spouse as well.

5. Letting Go and Moving On

In the event that you have taken several different steps to stop any physical and emotional abuse and nothing seems to work, make plans with a relative or close friend to move and have a place to stay. Take one to two days to only pack your essential needs. Items such as clothes, toiletries, and little odds and ins will need to be taken. If you decide to return for any reason, your spouse should undergo therapy or some form of counseling.
