We can help with diapers, clothing (newborn to 4T) , baby food, blankets, toys, baby accessories etc. Baby supply pickup is every Thursday between 9-4pm. An appointment is required.
Refuge offers free pregnancy testing. We will help you process the news and navigate how we can support you in your journey.
Refuge offers options counselling to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy who are undecided about how to proceed. We discuss all of the options: (abortion, adoption, parenting).
Women are provided with evidence based information and supports so that they can make an informed decision.
Refuge is not a medical clinic and does not provide medical referrals.
Refuge has partnered with the Doula Collective of Chatham Kent to offer a comprehensive pregnancy and labour support program called "Walk with Me". If you have little to no support, you don't have to do this alone. We would love to help you find joy in the journey and have a positive birth experience.
Post Abortive Counselling
Some women struggle emotionally after having an abortion and need a safe space to process their experience. Our post-abortive sessions with a registered psychotherapist are FREE and completely confidential.
