Just thought I would post this for people who might live in the Chicago area. I am the Director of Development for a non-profit organization in Inverness, IL (northwest Chicago suburb) called Society for the Preservation of Human Dignity (PHD). We are a counseling center for women who are pregnant or parenting children under the age of three. We specialize in pregnancy and parenting counseling as well as postpartum depression and grief and loss of a child.
All of the services are completly free of charge regardless of ability to pay, geography, religion, marital status, etc. Our PPD specialist is amazing! It's a great agency with lots of support services and referrals to other community agencies.
If you live in Chicago or in north/northwest suburbs and need counseling I strongly suggest you contact PHD. The number is 847-359-4919. Call and they will get you all set up with an appointment. No strings, nothing. Just wanted to pass along the information!
Best of luck to all of you who are struggling with this issue. I can't imagine how hard it is but I can tell you there is help out there!!
