Taking a pregnancy test can feel overwhelming, especially when the pregnancy is unplanned. You may have concerns about privacy or what the next steps should be if your test indicates that you are pregnant. We provide a free pregnancy test in a confidential supportive environment.
You don’t have to face this situation alone.

We provide you with up-to-date accurate information about abortion and the abortion pill, adoption and parenting.
Our trained, female support workers will listen to you and treat you with care and respect.
Sometimes, people have questions such as:
- Will an abortion hurt?
- How developed is my baby?
- If I place my child for adoption, how will I know what kind of life they will have?
- What supports are available to help me parent?
Many times, individuals and couples facing unplanned pregnancy just need a safe place to talk about their situation and feelings, without being judged or told what to do.
We are here to listen. And provide you with support.
Please note: Barrie Pregnancy Resource Centre is not a medical facility. We do not perform or refer for abortions. We provide non-judgmental, compassionate support and information on all pregnancy options. Our services are not intended as a substitute for professional counselling or therapy.
We provide you with care and support during and after your decision making process.
Taking a pregnancy test is just the beginning of a journey. Deciding which course of action to take can be a difficult process for many people. It is helpful to have a supportive and confidential place to talk about your feelings and your unique situation.
We provide ongoing emotional support to you as you take the time to consider your options. We are also happy to talk with and listen to the significant people in your life who may be helping you as you face this decision.
We continue to provide support, with whichever option you chose.
If you chose to parent, our team provides childbirth education classes and support with infant feeding and care, post-partum recovery and emotional support throughout the journey. Parenting isn’t always easy, but with positive support you can thrive!
If you place your child for adoption, our centre provides support to prepare for birth, for the adoption process and support to process the feelings you may face after placing your baby for adoption.
We also provide support if you are struggling with difficult emotions after an abortion.
You are not alone.
Information about Community Resources
We have information about a variety of different adoption agencies or lawyers. We provide you with support as you explore the option of adoption. If you decide that adoption is the best choice for you and your baby, we will provide you with support throughout the process and after your baby is placed for adoption.
We provide a safe place for you to process emotions connected to abortion losses. If you are struggling with your emotions because of an abortion, there is hope.
Some women feel relief after an abortion, while other women experience strong negative emotions. Some of these reactions may be immediate. Some occur many years after the abortion.
Whether you had an abortion last week or thirty years ago, we are here for you, if you need help.

Childbirth Education Classes
Classes are provided after 20 weeks pregnancy to help you prepare for your childbirth and the early stages after your baby is delivered. These classes are provided in small groups or individually to give you personalized support.
The centre also provides “doula” support during childbirth for women who do not have a support person, on a limited basis – feel free to ask us about this service.
After your baby is born, our centre doulas are available to provide information and support with baby feeding and care issues, and with your post-partum recovery. Our team will continue to provide emotional support and practical help to help you get the best start possible to your parenting journey!
We are here to help.
