Pregnancy can be a time of fear and anxiety. We are here to help.
Pregnancy can be a time of fear and anxiety. Women facing a pregnancy for which they feel unprepared should have all the information they need to be completely informed before making the irreversible decision to have an abortion. They should know about the physical and psychological side effects of the surgical procedure known as abortion. Some of this information can be found here.
We encourage you to contact one of the agencies listed below. They understand what you are going through because they have helped many women facing similar situations. Some of them have been through unplanned pregnancies themselves. They are concerned with your feelings about being pregnant and are there to guide and support you during your planning and decision making. Above all, you can be assured that everything shared will be kept confidential.
The Diocese of Providence Office of Life & Family offers many programs, counseling, and material support, including: St. Gabriel’s Call (for mothers and their unborn babies); The Elizabeth Ministry (for expectant mothers); My Child…My Gift (for medically challenged pregnancy & crisis pregnancy counseling); Project Rachel (for support after an abortion).
Maternity Hope Chest assists expectant mothers and families with diapers, toiletries, clothing, bassinets, and many other needs, subject to availability. We also help mothers identify and sign-up for programs and benefits offered by other agencies, both public and private, including housing. You will find comprehensive assistance, confidential guidance, and caring support.
