Our Talkline offers a free and confidential space to talk about pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption. We offer judgment-free support at any point before, during and after your experience, no matter which options you are considering, what decisions you have already made, or how you are feeling about it all.

People of all ages, genders, races, backgrounds, religious affiliations, and political leanings call Backline. Most of our callers are people who are or have been pregnant, and want to talk about their experiences. We also speak often to partners, parents, friends and loved ones who want to talk about their own feelings and/or how they can support someone in their lives.

Backline offers peer-based counseling and support. Our volunteer Talkline Advocates are not licensed healthcare providers or mental health specialists.
