Pregnancy counselling service 

Pregnant? Young or old, you are likely to have a lot of questions. And the answers are not always straightforward. Depending on your personal circumstances, pregnancy may be a critical period in your life. Problems may arise as a result of your professional or financial situation, the attitude of your partner, your age, or worries about the responsibility of caring for a child.

From general information to specific advice for individuals or in an emergency, the City of Münster pregnancy counselling service is here to help.

Services provided by the pregnancy and abortion counselling service:

  • advice on all issues relating to pregnancy and childbirth, e.g. midwife care/ante-natal classes, childcare
  • help with claims for benefits under social security legislation (e.g. SGB II/Hartz IV)
  • information and advice on
    • statutory benefits, e.g. Elterngeld (parental allowance), Kindergeld (child benefit), Mutterschaftsgeld (maternity allowance)
    • contraception and family planning
  • arranging financial assistance, including:
    • from the Bundesstiftung Mutter und Kind
    • from the City of Münster Discretionary Fund
  • legally recognised abortion counselling. We also issue documentation confirming that abortion counselling has been given.
