Philosophy of Pregnancy Assistance

Underpinning the concept of Pregnancy Help (now known as Pregnancy Assistance) is the realisation that if women are to be encouraged not to abort unplanned pregnancies, some form of practical and emotional support service is essential to sustain them while availing themselves of alternative options. Pregnancy Help (Bunbury), therefore is concerned generally with enhancing the experience of pregnancy for pregnant women and their families, especially where their pregnancy has occurred in adverse circumstances. Further, Pregnancy Help is concerned with supporting the welfare of people affected by pregnancy and alleviating their distress; or, in many circumstances, celebrating their joy.
