Whether you are pregnant and trying to make a decision about what to do, or you just need a place to talk about a past or current experience with abortion, adoption, parenting, infertility or pregnancy loss, you’ve found the right place. Call Backline toll-free at 1-888-493-0092 from anywhere in the United States or Canada!
Our Talkline offers a free and confidential space to talk about every pregnancy and parenting turning point. 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 pregnant or have been pregnant and want to talk about their own experiences. We also hear from 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. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency or having thoughts of hurting yourself, please call 1.800.273.TALK (in the US) or 1.800.SUICIDE (in the US or Canada), 24 hours/day.
