“There are Wonderful People at Sac Valley Pregnancy Clinic (Sacramento Life Center)!

When I began to suspect I might be pregnant, my boyfriend and I couldn't afford much; sometimes not even food, so buying a pregnancy test was a little out of the question. We looked for a place to go for free pregnancy testing and stumbled upon Sac Valley Pregnancy Clinic. I was so nervous making the appointment and then coming in, but the patient advocate I met with made me feel comfortable; I didn't feel judged at all. Turns out, I was pregnant. 

I am so grateful for everything Sac Valley Pregnancy Clinic did for me. Thanks to them, I found out about getting government support and applying for WIC. All the information about my pregnancy, the prenatal vitamins and the wonderful handmade baby blanket, were far more than I had expected.

 When my boyfriend and I came back for the ultrasound, I was just in tears. I was so happy! My boyfriend met with one of the male patient advocates. We are both so thankful for all the help that gave our baby a healthy start in life. 

We ended up moving away from Sacramento and wound up back in Dallas, Texas. We had a perfect baby boy and he is named after his dad, we call him CJ. Every time I wrap him in his blanket, I think of everyone who helped us in the clinic. Again, thank you so much!”
