At Birthright of St. Charles, part of assisting you in making an informed decision is the option to meet with a Masters Level, clinical counselor in a comfortable, judgement-free space to discuss your unique situation and needs. All counseling is provided confidentially and completely free of charge. Meeting with a counselor can occur on a one-time basis at your first visit or as an ongoing form of support based on what you feel is best for you.
We know that facing an unplanned pregnancy can be intimidating which is why we have caring, trained counselors on staff to talk with you and provide up to date information on all of your options, resources for medical help and to address any of the questions, worries and emotions you may be feeling. This is not something you have to go through alone.
We also understand that you are more than the pregnancy. We want to hear about your individual goals and needs. We value you as an unique, valuable individual.
