Welcome to Birthright of Schenectady

At Birthright, we understand the challenges related to  pregnancy. We know that it can be an overwhelming and often scary situation. However, we also know that there can be a great future 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  woman needs as she navigates trough her pregnancy and upcoming motherhood.

Birthright is available to women for as long as they need help. We offer love, friendship, and support to women who are pregnant,  think they may be pregnant and are new mothers. 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 unique, and 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 help and ensuring that she is not alone during this new chapter of her life.
