Last Sunday, Nov 8th, we were able to connect with more than 70 expecting mothers here in the Midlands! Half of them were new to Birthright. It was such an incredible day for them, and for us. With all the hard work that goes into this shower, seeing it come to life and having the opportunity to bless so many families in such a big way is really as blessing to us as well. Thank you to everyone who helped make this a success, and thank you to all of our guests who showed up to receive these gifts. We hope you know how much you and your baby are cared for and loved. If you see yourself or a friend, please feel free to tag them! CC: University of South Carolina Nursing

#DidYouKnow Birthright maintains a 24/7 Helpline? Call us at 1-800-550-4900. Over the years, the Helpline has assisted those who have been forced to leave their home or faced with peril once their pregnancy is discovered. Unfortunately we see this often. But our Helpline enables someone to talk to a caring person and obtain help immediately, even when our office is closed. #WeAreHere #pregnancyhelp

😱 🤩 Our donors have been unbelievably generous and our staff, University of South Carolina Nursing interns and volunteers have worked incredibly hard. And in just a couple days we will finally get to shower our well deserving moms-to-be with all these amazing items! 🥰

Even though we can’t celebrate the way we usually we do, we still plan to spoil these ladies just as much as in previous years. We even have “to-go” snack bags for each of our guests! We hope you’ll join us this Sunday. If you need more details please send us a message or give us a call! 😀

The first interaction we have with our clients is typically followed by a test to confirm their pregnancy. #DidYouKnow Birthright offers free, confidential pregnancy testing for anyone? In addition we offer support, education and materials needs for new moms - but the first step is sometimes the most important.

So contact us today if you think there is a chance you might be pregnant. Right now, our office is open Tuesday through Friday, 9am-5pm. We are here to help!

Here in the Birthright office we love to show off all the babies we’ve supported and cared for, since before they were even born. These photos of our miracle babies are a testament to the work we do each day, and has such an impact on newly pregnant moms who come to us for help. Seeing these sweet babies, with their 10 ten perfect fingers and 10 perfect toes, reminds them that even though it may feel like a struggle right now, the blessing will all be worth it in the end. #chooselife #welovebabies 💙💕💙💕

At Birthright, we realize the importance of education. Not just in educating our clients on how to be the best parents, but getting an actual education to set them up for better success in life. We are proud to offer assistance to moms AND dads in obtaining their GED. Birthright works with @richland.one to make this possible, pays all of the expenses involved and continues to support our clients along the way. Our clients are so grateful to have someone in their corner, pushing them to achieve more! #educationispower

October is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. 1 in 4 women will experience the tragic loss of her baby, due to a variety of circumstances.

At Birthright we do everything we can to make sure every baby has the best chance at survival - through education, access to prenatal care, basic necessities. But sometimes, it’s out of our hands. These sweet angels that we never got to meet are #NeverForgotten. 💜 Share your story so others know they do not walk alone.

PREGNANT MOM'S INVITED TO BIRTHRIGHT BABY SHOWER 2020

Our Executive Director, Hank Chardos, sat down with local radio personality during “On air with Talk Show Host, Koko!” to talk about our mission and our upcoming baby shower, hosted by University of South Carolina College of Nursing.

This event has typically been face-to-face, and has always brought so much joy to our clients as well as everyone participating. But like everything else, our event looks a little different this year. Take a listen to hear Hank discuss the details of our “modified for safety“ drive-through baby shower on November 8th! https://youtu.be/sdM0Eep7Vig

In addition to so many other things that we give our clients during their journey, we have this enormous selection of Lula Roe leggings provided to us by one of our sweet and generous donors.

These leggings are buttery soft and the perfect loungewear for anyone, pregnant or not! But our moms really love picking out a pair of these for their growing baby bumps. #maternityclothes #babybump #lularoe

Destiny came to us at 15 year old, when she believed she might be pregnant. Turns out she was, and with the help of our staff and volunteers, she went on to become a mom to a healthy baby boy!

Birthright was Destiny’s first stop, and we were there for her through her entire pregnancy. Are you pregnant? Think you could be? We are here to help. #hereforyou #youmatter #teenpregnancy

Have you heard of a Prayer Pocket? These precious gifts are hand made by St Ann’s Church in Hoboken, NJ. Each one bears a cross, outlined in pink or blue, which we give to moms once their baby is born. It’s a tangible reminder that people are always keeping them and their baby in their prayers. Our clients are always so moved and comforted by this seemingly small gesture of kindness. The instructions read, “If you are in need of some comfort, just put your hand in your pocket and know that you are in our prayers.” We have been so blessed by the members at #StAnnsHoboken who continue to share these with us. #powerofprayer #GodLovesYou #chooselife

God loves you before you are even born. We feel the same way about our client’s babies! We have some of the sweetest donors, who hand knit the beautiful blankets and hats seen here for every mom-to-be that we see. Her baby comes into this world loved by people who haven’t even met him or her. How special is that?

We are forever grateful to the generous volunteers and donors who help us share the love with our clients each day, and give them hope for their future. #babiesareablessing #chooselife

Anything we can do to help you become your best self and the best mom- we will. Have questions about the services we offer? Give us a call or send us a message.

The University of South Carolina Nursing students have been partnering with Birthright for 6 years now. Each semester 8-10 students volunteer to learn about the operation of our crisis pregnancy center. They get hands on experience with case management, client interaction, finances, donor management and so much more.

These students also work on a project for the entirety of their semester with us: planning and executing a baby shower for pregnant moms. They do such an amazing job creating this blessing for expecting mothers who otherwise may never have experienced the joy of celebrating their baby with friends and family. This partnership has meant so much to us, and we hope it continues for a long time. #UofSCpartnership #UofSCNursing #ItTakesAVillage

We could all use a little prayer from time to time. One of the greatest assets of our organization is our prayer chain. Our clients are so moved by knowing so many are joining together in prayer on their behalf. We pray specifically and with intention for each and every soon to be mom we counsel.

Do you have a prayer request? Or would you like to join our team of prayer warriors, who prays daily for these courageous women? #powerofprayer #prayerwarriors #LetUsPray

Hear from one of our clients, who came to us pregnant and lacking any family support. Birthright was simply there for her during a challenging time, and was able to guide her through her pregnancy and into motherhood.

In addition to other gifts and services, Birthright presents all of our clients with two gift bags. Thanks to our generous donors and volunteers we have large gift bags, nearly overflowing with all the basic necessities for baby.

The first one includes sleepers, outfits, bibs, washcloths, pacifiers, socks and hand knitted blanket & booties. The second bag is full of much need health care items like diapers, wipes, ointments, lotion and baby shampoo. It means so much to these expecting mothers just to know how much we care, and that someone is supporting them during what can sometimes feel like an overwhelming time. #supportmothers #expectingmothers #giftoflife

There is no greater gift on earth than the gift of life. Some of our clients, due to varying circumstances, decide that raising a child in their current situation is not what’s best for their baby. But thankfully their pregnancy journey doesn’t end there. ❤️❤️

Birthright is proud to assist our clients through the process of adoption, when adoption is the best choice for mom and baby. Adoption isn’t an easy choice, but sometimes it’s the right choice. We would love to help you navigate this process, and it can begin at any point during your pregnancy. #chooselife #adoptionislove #adoptionsaveslives
