Birthright sees nearly 1,000 women each year with an unplanned pregnancy.
We are here for any pregnant woman no matter her age or personal situation. When a pregnancy is not planned it can affect the relationship with your baby’s father, your living situation, your emotions, your budget, your family and the way you look at your future.
It is normal to have many questions especially if this is your first pregnancy. It is normal for your thoughts about your pregnancy to frequently change. It is important for you to care for yourself and make decisions that are the healthiest for you and your baby.
If you have shared the fact that you are pregnant with people, you are likely hearing many opinions on what you should do.
You may be feeling afraid to tell anyone.
Either way, Birthright St Louis is a safe, confidential place to talk to someone who will focus on you.
We will support you in navigating through your pregnancy and map out the best plan for you.
52% of pregnancies in the United States are unplanned or have unexpected complications.
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.
Monday-Friday 9:00-4:00 (all locations)
Saturdays 9:00-1:00 (Brentwood office)
What to Expect
You won’t be asked to provide a lot of information. Everything you say and any information you give is kept confidential. No one will be able to get information about you without your written consent.
Birthright is staffed by trained professionals. 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 with you or a friend or family member to accompany you. It’s up to you if you want them to sit in with you when you meet with your counselor.
You can meet with the same counselor as often as necessary through your pregnancy and after your baby is born. You can call, text or email her as well.
Birthright will provide translator services for non-English speaking women.
