For over 50 years, Birthright has been helping women with unplanned pregnancies.
Birthright began in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1968 when Louise Summerhill, a busy housewife and mother of seven children, felt something should be done to help women facing unplanned pregnancies.
By offering love, hope, support, and resources, Birthright has grown to become a pregnancy support service with hundreds of centres throughout Canada, the United States, and Africa.
Birthright Regina opened in 1971 and has been helping women and their families ever since.
We at Birthright are committed to providing confidential, non-judgmental support to any woman who is pregnant or thinks she might be pregnant, no matter her age, race, circumstances, religion, marital status, or financial situation. Birthright is a charitable organization that relies on the dedication, time, and talents of volunteers and the generosity of donations to ensure it can persevere in supporting pregnant women.
