Profemina Draws on Many Years of Counseling Experience

Our Profemina counseling team relies on relevant professional qualifications in counseling women who are conflicted about their pregnancy, as well as many years of experience passed down from one counselor to the next.

Most of the content on this homepage has its source in our counseling work.

An Interdisciplinary Approach

Our editorial team is comprised of staff members with a variety of qualifications and talents. Our content is enriched by this wide range of socio-educational, journalistic, linguistic, and digital perspectives. All content is reviewed by several editors and, in some cases, also subjected to an external check, e.g., legal or medical.

Rigorous Research

We research all information with great diligence. It is important to us that you are comprehensively informed and have access to information that is not readily available elsewhere.

Monitoring and Updating

When we publish a text on our site, the work is not over: We continuously update our texts based on new facts or your feedback. For example, all texts containing information on social services are checked twice a year by default to see if they need updating — reflecting official adjustments in benefit levels.

Translation and Cultural Adaptation

Translations are tailored to the target language and culture, to meet the readers’ specific needs within their local context.

Cutting Edge Counseling Technology

All technical features are regularly tested regarding performance and are continuously optimized. Our expertise in counseling, linguistics, and technology ensures the continuous enhancement of our digital coaching services. We aim to make counseling available in a low-threshold and effective format — even without the need for personal interaction.
