Pregnant? Need Help?
The Island Pregnancy Centre is here to help.
We are here to assist teens, women and families with unexpected pregnancies.
We provide caring and non-judgmental support throughout the pregnancy decision making process and afterwards. Our approach is to provide each client with care tailored to their unique situation. If you are interested in our services, feel free to contact us or drop by. All of our programs and services are free and confidential.
We also provide free access to material goods including diapers, wipes, clothes, toys as well as larger items such as car seats, strollers, infant swings and much more.
If you find yourself in the midst of an unexpected pregnancy, know that the Island Pregnancy Centre is here for you.
We provide accurate information on all options; however we are not a medical facility. We cannot medically confirm pregnancies nor can we provide or arrange for abortions.
Response to COVID-19:
We are continuing to work hard to keep our staff and clients safe, but we also understand the important role we play in many of our clients' lives. We will be continuing to offer essential goods to our clients in the form of diapers, wipes and formula. However, we are not allowing anyone other than essential staff in the building at the moment. If you are in need of these items, feel free to give us a call at (902) 370-3700 and we can process your request and have it ready for pickup. You can also come directly to the Centre and request items at our back pickup window. Your order will be processed right then and there. If you have other needs we encourage you to reach out and we will make arrangements to assist if possible.
We also understand that for a lot of our clients, our services are more than just coming to get material goods. We are lucky that we are able to build meaningful relationships with our clients and walk alongside them throughout their pregnancies or through parenting. While we are not a substitute for professional services, we do offer peer-counselling in our normal, day-to-day operations. This is a key area of service of the Island Pregnancy Centre, and it seems like now, more than ever, we don’t want to lose those valuable connections. If you would like to chat with our staff regarding a pregnancy related concern, options counselling, a parenting issue or just a general check-in, feel free to reach out to us. We are in the process of setting up virtual peer-counselling and would be happy to set up a time and date where we could meet with you online. This is open and available to anyone in need - not just current clients!
