At a Women’s Care Center (WCC) we simply love. It is in a loving environment that pregnant women (and anyone else in relationship her baby) recognize their value and the value of her baby.
We opened our first Women’s Care Center in 2012 in Hammond. We opened our second in Merrillville in 2017. Each day we welcome women who are pregnant into a relationship that normally leads to a mother who is ready to welcome a healthy baby.
We offer these women counseling, pregnancy tests, the amazing experience of seeing their baby thanks to 4D ultrasound equipment, and as many classes on child birth, parenting, communication, planning, goal setting, and more as they care to take. Oh, and we gladly accompany them not merely through the birth of their baby, or the child’s first birthday, but until that child starts school. We are blessed to witness the transformation that happens when a woman chooses to be a mother. (And a man chooses to be a father!)
Our two centers are staffed with highly qualified counselors and ultrasound technicians (sonographers). Their training has prepared them to accompany women who are making lasting decisions with huge implications.
We invite you to learn more about this marvelous ministry by calling us and arranging a visit. If you are pregnant and feeling uncertain, call us today, please!
