I had just finished school and started a new job when I found out I was pregnant. This was not something I had planned for at all, and wasn’t exactly “good news.” Coming home from the doctor on a Toronto subway, I was very concerned about what my next step would be. I saw the ad on the subway and quickly scribbled the number down. As soon as I got off the train, I called the Pregnancy Care Centre and booked an appointment.
I had a lot of preparation to do – especially considering the fact that I thought having a baby was just like babysitting. Watching moms come in and out of the centre really brought reality close to my eyes. I was worried, but PCC helped me prepare mentally, emotionally and socially for my baby. I learned to be open with my friends and family about my pregnancy, and best of all, I learned to be confident without feeling ashamed. PCC got me back on track and now I am able to handle being a mom, a wife and a soon-to-be working woman.
That’s the peace I received from the Pregnancy Care Centre: being able to gain control of something I feared would destroy me. I am thankful to God for leading me into their hands.
