-Miscarriage-

Many lives affected by miscarriage

You’re not alone in your grief. Around 15% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. There’s probably someone you know who has experienced a miscarriage—even though you may not have been aware of it.

Grieving is natural

God has established our ministry to help meet the practical, emotional, and spiritual needs of women and young moms in our community. We want to share God’s supreme love and mercy with every woman we meet! Understand How God sees you.

Talk about your miscarriage

Miscarriage is sometimes grieved silently. Maybe you think that if you don’t say anything, then it won’t hurt as much. Maybe the thought of talking about it is scary, because it makes the loss seem more tangible. But it often helps to talk with someone about it.

We’re here for you

If you need someone to talk to, please Contact us. We don’t want you to think you need to do this alone. We want to help you discover hope!

-Thinking about abortion-

Pregnant and scared?

We know that sometimes women feel very scared when they find out they’re pregnant and for different reasons, they don’t want to go through with the pregnancy. Are you in this situation right now? Have you thought about abortion? We want you to know that we care about you and we understand that it can be a lonely and stressful time, especially if you’re keeping your pregnancy a secret from friends and family.

Why we don’t provide abortion

Alpha Women Center doesn’t offer abortions. Abortion involves ending the life of an innocent person which is a sin and forbidden by God.

A person made by God

God has given us the Bible to educate us about everything to do with Him and life. Our Creator gives us clear instruction that no one is here by chance or is a mistake. Just as God planned you and made you, He has also chosen to give life to this baby growing in you. God tells us in the Bible that life begins at conception, so any form of abortion at any stage of pregnancy is morally wrong.

We would caution you therefore about abortion providers who have a contrary way of looking at things and don’t believe in this truth from God.

“For You formed my inward parts;

You knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well.

My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance;

in Your book were written, every one of them,

the days that were formed for me,

when as yet there was none of them.”

Psalm 139:13-16

Don’t panic

We understand that you may be in a state of panic and don’t see your pregnancy as a blessing from God. Maybe you see it as something that needs to be fixed. You may not have planned to get pregnant. Your circumstances may be VERY hard.

God cares for you

God sees your situation and He cares for you. He knows if you’re a teenage girl who’s scared of telling her parents, He knows if you’re a college student trying hard to get good grades, He knows if you’re a young mom who doesn’t have any money, and He knows if you’ve been sexually assaulted and He grieves at what was done to you. He knows better than any person – how difficult and confusing this situation may be right now.

Trust God with your pregnancy

If your pregnancy feels like an impossible situation—know that nothing is impossible for God! God can take the hardest and most painful parts of our lives and turn them into something amazing if we are willing to trust Him. God asks that you don’t run away or cover up the reality of your pregnancy and try to deal with it in a sinful way. There are always terrible consequences to sin, and the decision to have an abortion will negatively impact your life and others close to you in ways you may not be able to see right now.

-Life after an abortion-

Hard to think about?

Are you someone who has had an abortion? We know it might be extremely painful for you to even think about it, never mind talk about it. Many women who’ve had an abortion may find it difficult to even say the word.

Lasting impact

We understand that it may have seemed like the right choice to you at the time, especially when abortion providers or other people make it out to be no big deal. But it is a big deal – not only because of the baby’s life, but because of the effects on your life also. We see firsthand how abortion deeply and negatively impacts women’s lives.

Post-abortion syndrome

Have you been traumatized by having an abortion? Do you have toxic emotions about it? Is it affecting your life, your relationships, your sleeping and eating habits? These may be symptoms of Post-abortion syndrome.

Peace and joy are possible

We want you to know that the rest of your life does not have to stay like this. Change is possible! You can leave this dark place and find peace and joy. We have helped other women in our community heal after abortion.

Run to God

We take a spiritual approach, because abortion is really a spiritual issue. Sometimes women can be very afraid thinking about God because of their abortion, but God does not want you to run away from Him. On the contrary! Because of God’s lovingkindness, He wants to forgive you and help you if you turn to Him.

-Adoption-

Unplanned pregnancy

Have you found out that you’re pregnant? Is this an unplanned pregnancy for you? You might feel like your world has been turned upside down, and we understand that you’re experiencing a lot of worry about the right thing to do.

Informed decision making

We know that sometimes it’s not possible for a woman to keep her baby. Usually women in these situations consider either Abortion or adoption. We want to provide you with true and trustworthy information so you can make an informed decision for the baby and for you.

Warning about abortion

We strongly urge women not to choose abortion. Though this is legal in our state, it’s considered morally wrong in God’s eyes to end a pregnancy. According to God – new life and new personhood start at conception and not at birth. We have prepared a Thinking about abortion section to give you more information.

Consider adoption

You may or may not have considered adoption. It may seem like a strange thing to you right now to go through a pregnancy and not keep the baby – but adoption can be a great choice and it can work for you and the child. You might not know much about what’s involved in adoptionand that’s okay. We are here to share information with you, and help you feel more comfortable deciding whether it’s right for you.

2 surprising facts about adoption

  1. It’s your right to pick out the parents and home-style for the baby
  2. You get to choose whether the adoption plan is an open, semi-open or closed plan
