Why St. Elizabeth
The St. Elizabeth Foundation is devoted to helping birth mothers in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, New Orleans and around Louisiana make adoption plans for their unplanned pregnancies or crisis pregnancies. We do everything we can to support and care for the birth mother.
Our caring adoption professionals can help you explore your options in planning for your child’s future without the burden of outside pressure. We also provide pregnancy assistance in living, medical, legal, counseling, and education costs. All our resources are provided free of charge to our birthmothers and birthfathers.
And, of course, our adoption services are confidential.
quotes from birth mothers
St. Elizabeth’s was awesome. I love Ms. Teri. I love Ms. Kristin. Anything I needed -- they were there. I could call them for anything. Without them, I don’t know what I would have done.
Did you learn anything about yourself through the adoption process?
I really found out that I was so much stronger than what I thought. I did not think that I would be able to do things like this. I learned that I was a very strong person.
quotes from staff
I haven’t met a young woman yet here who didn’t have something she wanted to be. And so our goal becomes to help them get there. Sometimes it’s as little as I want to have a driver’s license. Sometimes it’s as big as I want to have a career. And so we just try to find what she’s hopeful for. And help her to get there.
