At Birthright, we understand the challenges related to unplanned pregnancies. We know that it can be an overwhelming situation. We also know that there is hope for the mother and her child. Birthright believes that “It is the right of every pregnant woman to give birth, and the right of every child to be born.” Birthright is here to be the friend that a pregnant woman needs as she navigates an unplanned pregnancy. We offer love, friendship, and support to women who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant. Birthright services are always free, non-judgmental and confidential. We can also provide information, referrals, and resources to help the woman help herself. Birthright is available 24/7 through our toll-free helpline. Birthright is not involved in any religious movements, political activities, or lobbying. Birthright’s focus is on loving the mother, reminding her that there is hope and ensuring she is not alone.
All are invited and encouraged to come to our office this Friday, July 14th., 2:00-3:00 pm and learn about Birthright while also considering how you may be able to volunteer. All you need is a couple of hours a week to give to the mothers in need, a little training, and a LOT of LOVE :)! Please consider coming to our get-together and learning about what we do and how you can be a part of this beautiful ministry. No commitments are expected on Friday, just come and see :). Thank you!
I attended the annual June convention this year. We were provided with a lot of great, continued training and help in how to best serve mothers in need who come to our centers. I have been sharing this information with all of the volunteers at the our office and we will continue to review it at are fall staff meeting.
