I have been working with Birthchoice since 1992, and have watched the organization grow, grow, grow! Having the ultrasound machine has been such a blessing! Birthchoice is a vital part of our community. The organization has brought hope to hundreds of women and their families though their wonderful volunteers and staff.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the efforts of the donors to make Birthchoice available to the community and in the wonderful leadership of the CEO!!!

Birthchoice is a vital and necessary part of this community, helping young mothers and fathers make the right choice. I only wish that my wife and I would have had an establishment like Birthchoice when we were young.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

participating in a prayer group outside of an abortion clinic.

With my last child, I was able to receive a free ultrasound which allowed us to see for sure that it was only a single pregnancy. Additionally, it allowed our other children to meet their new sibling. It is financially costly to have a simple ultrasound and without Birthchoice we would have just had to forgo the opportunity. The staff were so welcoming and supportive and the office was family-friendly. We choose to support Birthchoice with our financial donations because we know firsthand the valuable service they offer to women and families. We plan to return to Birthchoice for our newest addition as well.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

supporting women to bond with their unborn children and getting the help they may need to carry and care for their children and themselves.

Birthchoice truly helps pregnant (and sometimes non-pregnant) women of all ages, races, and religions. The caring, friendly, and dedicated staff of volunteers empower these women by providing valuable and truthful information about pregnancy, adoption, and abortion, and suggest local resources who can help financially, materially, and emotionally—including Medicaid, Catholic Parish Outreach, Gabriel Project, New Leaf Behavioral Health, Project Rachel, various housing and employment options, and many more. All of Birthchoice's services are free to clients, including pregnancy tests and ultrasounds (they even pay cab fare when a woman has no form of transportation to the clinic!). Men and families are welcome at appointments to support the women, and the facility is cozy and welcoming.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Clients are most appreciative of a volunteer's caring and listening ear. They are thankful for the resources Birthchoice provides, and that there's never "a catch." Women's hearts and minds open to what THEY ultimately want, not someone else's wishes.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the other volunteers -- their ever-inspiring dedication to providing women with accurate information on pregnancy and abortion.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save many, many more women from a lifetime of potential heartbreak and regret.

During my pregnancy with my son Andrew, I was able to receive a free ultrasound at the Raleigh Birthchoice clinic to help me better place my due date. This was a mutually beneficial appointment because Birthchoice was in the process of training on their new ultrasound equipment with a beautiful flat screen imaging. My husband and two older children were welcome to see the results also and the professional staff was warm and supportive. The clinic is a very special place where I know women and families can come for supportive and confidential assistance during their pregnancy. I would encourage friends to seek the clinic for its resources as well as return to volunteer time, talent and treasure to support them in their mission to help other women and babies. We continue to support Birthchoice by contributing time and money to the effort. Thank you Birthchoice!
