Disclaimer: Counseling is not just for people with diagnosed mental health problems. Our professional counselors are ready to listen no matter how big or small you think your problem is. Stressful situations affect us all differently. If you do have something going on that is bigger, Birthright’s counselors have the knowledge, training and experience to help you.
Our pregnancy help counseling program includes crisis, individual, group, post-partum, post-abortion, and fathers’ counseling.
Our counselors are experienced in the areas of trauma, domestic violence, mental health, substance use, housing, support systems, community resources and perinatal and post-partum anxiety and depression.
Birthright’s Pregnancy Help
Birthright is a positive place. You won’t be asked to provide a lot of information. Everything you say and all of your information is kept confidential. No one can call in and get info about whether you came to Birthright or what you said. You will meet with a pregnancy counselor.
She will listen to you, answer your questions and tell you about Birthright’s services and programs.
You can bring the father of your baby or family member with you to Birthright. It’s up to you if you want them to sit in when you are talking to your counselor.
You can meet with, call or text your counselor as often as you need during your pregnancy and after your baby is born.
Where Do I Start?
Call, text or walk in to one of our three locations.
If you need a pregnancy test we can do one right away. If not you can just talk. You can give as little personal info as you want. If you would like to talk a while or have a lot going on, making an appointment may be best.
