A Letter to the Editor

A Letter to the Editor

A brave former pregnancy centre client responding to a letter to the editor…   Dear Editor: I must respond to Jim Zimmerman’s letter (Let them be honest, Sept. 8) disapproving the Centre Wellington Pregnancy Centre. I had an unplanned pregnancy four years ago at age 19 and have been a Crisis Pregnancy Centre (CPC) client since. The outcomes of my first-hand experience discredit Zimmerman’s projected accusations. CPCs are not “anti-choice agencies.” Entering my first counselling session I favored adoption. Despite this, all three options were discussed with an identical level of deliberation and unbiased guidance. I was consistently reminded that I could change my mind and never felt pressured to choose life. They are not “anti-abortion counselling centres” – 99.9% of the time a CPC’s website has post-abortion grief support on the main page as one of their top three services. Although he stated that post-abortion syndrome is not a medically recognized condition, this does not render it non-existent. It is an honest grief, like post-adoption grief (which I experienced). One cannot dispute others’ feelings unless they have experienced it themselves. Lastly, online information and family doctors do not render CPCs unneeded. Relying on the internet would be the least dependable way to wholly aid a vulnerable woman. Doctors are not always sufficient either. I found out I was pregnant at the doctor’s and was given one pamphlet for an abortion centre and was not offered a follow up appointment or referral to a university counsellor. Not all women are aware of a CPC like I was, which stopped me from rushing the biggest decision of my life. CPCs...

Mom to Mom

Mom to Mom

Our Spring 2017 Mom to Mom mentorship program ended recently and what an amazing journey it was! We had the joy of loving and serving twelve moms and eight babies over the course of ten weeks.  Each week we engaged a new topic, and clients wrote a specific goal to work on with the support of their mentor mom.  This team of eight mentor moms encountered many joys as well as challenges ‘doing life’ with their clients.  During the ten weeks, two clients gave birth and two clients had their babies apprehended.  These moms continued to come out and received unconditional love and support from the group and from their mentor.  We took a class ‘field trip’ to the Children’s Needs Distribution Centre and moms filled garbage bags with clothing, books and toys for their kids.  We also cooked and ate a delicious meal together.   Our final class was filled with many tears as mentor moms each presented their client with a handmade blanket (donated to the centre) and the most beautiful affirming message of hope and love. Thank you for your support.  It is a joy to serve the moms in our community and watch them grow as parents and as individuals....
