Who are Your People?
There is a saying that goes something like, “A good friend will bail you out of jail. A true friend will be sitting next to you in jail saying, ‘That was awesome!'”
Now, I’m not condoning behavior that winds a person in jail! But, the sentiment is real.
Something powerful happens when we walk with those who need love and support, not just show up in a pinch. When we sit side by side, no matter what comes next.
When facing unintended sexual health events like an infection scare or unplanned pregnancy, everyone needs a safe place to seek help. A non-judgmental, compassionate encounter with someone who doesn’t benefit from someone’s reproductive choices can make all the difference!
Help Before a Pregnancy Occurs…
Even before a person becomes sexually active, Connect is available to answer questions about sexual health and fertility awareness education. We believe in informed consent; everyone deserves to understand the risks and benefits to their health before deciding to engage in sexual activity.
If think you could be pregnant, you may be feeling alone and afraid, and not sure who you can turn to. You do not have to go through this alone!
Please consider making an appointment with one of our nurses. We can connect you to resources and people who can walk with you every step of the way.
Your life matters and you can have hope!
