Leah Jacobsen on Cradle My Heart Radio week of August 28
Pregnancy help centers have been offering women a better choice than abortion for decades, first through peer counseling and free pregnancy tests, and now many with full medical staff and post-natal support. These organizations currently outnumber abortion providers in the US.
Yet, women who find themselves facing an unintended pregnancy still may feel left alone and without resources, thinking abortion is their only feasible option. Resources that they need are often unknown to them and can be difficult to find and time-consuming to access. Multiple services are rarely located in a single location.
The next generation of pregnancy help is comprehensive. Guiding Star‘s approach is to offer healthcare for women which recognizes the greatness and the gift of femininity and help us to function at our healthiest. Founder Leah Jacobson says, “When women are affirmed in their femininity and are honored for who they are, then we will be empowered and have true equality.” Guiding Star envisions ‘one-stop shop’ centers providing support for natural means of family planning, fertility care, childbirth, breastfeeding, and family life, including childcare. These Centers will meet the needs of everyday people in holistic, life-affirming ways. We will facilitate cooperation between many providers to better serve women and families in one convenient, professional, welcoming location.
