“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!”

Amber started her day at the Gathering Inn Homeless Shelter complaining she was not feeling well. She had no health insurance and seemingly no support of any kind. The shelter had provided her a place to sleep for the night and a social worker to assess her needs.  With the social worker’s help, Amber was seen by a doctor at the St. Vincent De Paul Medical Clinic...

Amy did not plan to get pregnant again… after all, she had just delivered a baby boy last year. She was barely making ends meet as it was. At the Life Center, she talked with her Patient Advocate about her situation and how she was planning to terminate the pregnancy.

Just five months after I had given birth to my second son, I suspected I was pregnant again. I was fearful of what another pregnancy would mean – the high cost of daycare services, perhaps having to quit my job and the strain on my family’s finances.
