Refuge offers free pregnancy testing. We will help you process the news and navigate how we can support you in your journey.
Refuge can help with a wide range of maternity & baby supplies for those who are in financial need or having a tough month. We can help with diapers, clothing (newborn to 4T) , baby food, blankets, toys, baby accessories etc. Baby supply pickup is the second and fourth Thursday of the month.
If you have recently found out that you are expecting and are unsure what to do, we can walk you through all of your options. We will provide you with information to help you make an informed decision and not a decision based in fear.
Refuge offers FREE prenatal, postpartum and parenting workshops every first and third Thursday of the month at 1pm, (with the exception of July and August). Workshops are lead by certified birth doulas and other professionals in our community. Join us in our comfy meeting room with snacks and good conversation as we learn together. We have giveaways at every workshop.
Refuge has partnered with the Doula Collective of Chatham Kent to offer a comprehensive pregnancy and labour support program called "Walk with Me". We would love to help you find joy in the journey and have a positive birth experience.
