Our Foundational Principles
profemina is an independent, highly qualified, non-profit counseling service for women facing unintended pregnancies. We facilitate self-determined and independent decisions by providing pregnant women with judgement-free resources, such as objective information, excellent and increasingly diverse life coaching, as well as practical support. Having counseled over 100,000 women, we have learned that external pressure from circumstances and people is the leading cause for abortion decisions.
We therefore hold it as our primary task to come alongside women experiencing unintended pregnancies with radical solidarity, offering support for THOSE WHO DESIRE an alternative to abortion - thus making a FREE decision possible.
Our goal is to encourage you NOT to be intimidated, pressured, or coerced by external circumstances or people. We want to create an environment in which you can act in accordance with your values and convictions, face adversity courageously, and grow with each challenge you face in life.
SHOULD YOU SO DESIRE, it would be a privilege for us to walk alongside you as you discover your deepest desires for life and liberty.
Our work is financed solely by private donors, who desire to support women experiencing unintended pregnancies. We are therefore able to offer our services completely free of charge to any woman seeking advice and support.

Our Counseling Standards
Excellence: In order to provide quality counseling services, profemina’s counseling team consists of highly trained members: psychologists, doctors, educators, and social workers - many of whom additionally possess degrees in counseling. When the need arises, we consult lawyers, specialized physicians, or financial consultants on your behalf, at no cost to you.
Empathy and Esteem: Our highest values in counseling are listening, respect, and understanding. When you turn to us for help, we will do everything in our power to live up to your expectations, hopes, and needs. We commit to listening to you. Together, you and we will gain an understanding of your current situation and strive to find solutions that work for you.
Trust: Dialogue is the prerequisite for successful counseling. A trust relationship is necessary for dialogue to happen. Strong mutual trust is also the foundation upon which to make a good and truly autonomous decision. Therefore, we offer our services to any woman - irrespective of her situation, race, or religious affiliation – free of charge, confidential, and, upon request, also anonymous.
