- Birthright of Rochester
Since 1971, Birthright of Rochester has offered free and confidential pregnancy support to any woman regardless of age, income or ethnicity. Birthright’s focus is on the distressed mother and her baby. Our guiding principle is: “It is the right of every woman to give birth and the right of every child to be born.” Staffed almost exclusively by volunteers, we understand that each woman's situation is unique and our objective is to help her understand that she has options. We then provide support and advocacy to her through our follow-up program. With the help of generous donations of our community, we provide maternity clothes, layettes for newborns and infant clothing along with our advocacy. Emphasizing accessibility, Birthright offers multiple locations throughout the greater Rochester area, and a 24-hour hotline so that assistance is always only a phone call away.
