This was a God sent place for me in my time of need. Everyone there was so caring and helpful with my needs. I was able to get an ultrasound, and lots of resources and good counsel. Because of them I had a better pregnancy and a healthy baby. I'm thankful for places like this.
Compared to other clinics I went to, I felt safer at First Care because the other clinics seemed like they didn't care.
Had there not been First Care I would have gotten an abortion.
I remember Diana welcoming me into First Care and talking to me like my mom...and telling me it's gonna be okay, it's your decision, and she told me the positive things about keeping the baby.
I spoke to Lorie, my lifesaver, and after talking with her I decided I was going to do it..she gave me all the info and all the help I needed...this is my baby, this is my gift.
As soon as she was born, the room lit up, and from that day on happiness was in my house.
At the end of the day, I look at my life and what has changed my life, and I never regret it because I was given the opportunity to change my mind.
That morning I searched for abortion alternatives and found First Care. This woman, Sarah, took me under her wing and was a mentor to me..I called Sarah every day twice a day.
While I was on the sonogram table, I prayed to God that he would open my heart and open my spirit. God touched me that day and touched my heart for my child.
First Care is there and so supportive. While everyone is telling you to abort, they are telling you this child not a bunch of cells, there is a heartbeat, and the pain of abortion is a life long regret.
I already had one abortion and did not want another but felt like it was my only way out.
I made an appointment for an abortion but Sandi kept calling me and encouraging me and loving me. I was so scared but started feeling courageous.
Once again, when I did not know what to do, First Care was there. I was able to go to 45th St. Clinic. I had never felt so special or cared for in a medical facility. This was like no clinic I had ever been to in my life.
