Important topics for life are partnership, sexuality, family planning and pregnancy. Different institutions can help and counsel you with all questions and problems you may have (for instance the Women centre Schleswig e.V., Diaconal Institution, Guardian Angel etc.)

Help for pregnant women in distress:

The phone-number 0800 40 40 020 provides support if, for instance, a confidential birth is taken into consideration.


A woman who is thinking about having an abortion in Germany (it is irrelevant whatever the personal reasons may be) always needs a certificate. However, she does not need one if not previously a so called medical (endangerment for the life of the pregnant) or criminalistic (pregnancy caused by a sexual offence) indication was attested by a doctor. Approved pregnancy conflict counselling departments (for example Women Centre Schleswig e.V, Diakonic Institution.) can, after that a personal conversation took place, issue this certificate. In Germany, the abortion can be done until the end of the 12th week of the pregnancy after the conception took place (surgical, instrumental or by means of medication).

You can find additional information here.

There is a information leaflet available, made by the pregnancy counselling departments from the county of Schleswig-Flensburg which include addresses and was translated in multiple languages:

Counseling when in a pregnancy conflict Arabic

Counseling when in a pregnancy conflict Farsi

Counseling when in a pregnancy conflict French

Counseling when in a pregnancy conflict Tigrinya

Federal Foundation / Onetime grants for the pregnancy and upon birth

The Federal Foundation has put aside extra funds for pregnant women who find themselves within a so called financial hardship. When filing an application for this kind of aid, for example at the Women Centre Schleswig e.V. or the Diakonic Institution, funds can be granted after a personal conversation. Subsidies given by the Federal Foundation are only possible, if other social benefits do not suffice or do not arrive on time (secondary priority principle). For a conversation such as this, the following documents are needed:

  • maternity log
  • ID Card from the mother
  • All proofs of monthly income and expenses from the mother (also from the father, if present) that means ,for example rent, secondary costs, insurances, loans, etc)
  • Approval- or denial notifications from the application for first time outfittings by the social centre (Priority as it is a statutory social benefit!)
  • Preferably an own bank account because the calculated entitled sum will be transferred approximately two months prior to the predicted birth date of your child.

The grants given from the foundation are not added as income!
