Dear @Faga0206,

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us.

Did you actually contact the pregnancy counselling office of the Diakonie in Meissen? As I read on their website (please follow the link for the contact details), they are offering support in applying for the so-called "Erstaustattung" for pregnant women. With this money, women are supposed to be able to afford the most essential equipment. 

According to section 3 and 6 of the "Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz", this allowance should be granted by the Landkreis in Meissen. The Diakonie can also support women in applying for financial support by the foundation "Mutter und Kind - Schutz des ungeborenen Lebens".

I would recommend you to contact them (again) and to ask for a counselling appointment and please let us know if this is not working out and we will try to make some further research.

All the best,
