The Birthline/Lifeline Pregnancy Care Program promotes the sanctity of life and offers pregnancy care services at its pregnancy care center locations. Services are offered free of charge to all clients who meet basic criteria. At the pregnancy care centers, women coping with an unplanned pregnancy can access compassionate counseling regarding adoption, alternatives to pregnancy terminations and more. When a client who is abortion-minded sees her baby with an ultrasound, she has a change of heart and chooses life!
Below is a list of services we provide through our three pregnancy care centers:
- Free ultrasounds and pregnancy testing
- Prenatal care referrals
- Pro-life education
- Abortion alternative counseling
- Adoption referrals
- Parenting Classes
- Fertility Awareness Education
- Material assistance
- Assistance may include maternity clothes, baby apparel and layettes. When available, car seats, strollers, cribs, baby food, formula and diapers are provided.
- 24-Hour Support Hotline for clients: 561-278-0880
Clients are provided with contact information and necessary documentation for Medicaid/medical coverage, referrals and other available services within the county and/or Catholic Charities.
Other programs of the Birthline/Lifeline Ministry include our Adoption Project, Speakers Guild and Style for Life. We also have a partnership with several local schools to provide internships for students studying to become nurses or ultrasound technicians.

Catholic Medical Association
Because physicians need a support group to adopt Church teaching and go "Pro-Life" with their patients, there is a chartered guild of The Catholic Medical Association within the Diocese of Palm Beach. Membership is open to physicians, nurses and lay people.
As the need for medical ethics and clarity on Catholic teaching for health care and the preservation of the sanctity of human life continues to escalate, forming a chapter of like minded physicians and medical professionals is a powerful way to serve the culture and maintain and affirm a "Culture of Life" mentality.
Birthline/Lifeline recommends membership in the CMA, however, the Palm Beach Physicians CMA Guild is not a Catholic Charities Program. For more information about the guild, please email us.
