Pregnancy Counseling & Coaching

If we can offer you any encouragement at all, it would be that you could make your decision based on your future and not based on what others expect of you or think you should do. We believe you owe it to yourself to get all the answers and facts about your unplanned pregnancy and to give yourself time to sort this through.  If necessary, we can get you connected to other resources in our community to assist you along the way.

 

EWYL Prenatal Classes

The earn while you learn program offers classes for expecting parents and each lesson includes what to expect during each trimester of pregnancy and it encourages parents to be connected with what is going on in the pregnancy to be able to discuss any changes or concerns with your doctor. Each class is under 30 minutes and can be done at any time from the comfort of your home; there is a printable simple worksheet after each video as well as the option to do a one-on-one Q&A with one of our volunteer counselors. Each class that is completed earns you points to be able to shop from our baby boutique. Classes are available in English and Spanish from Prenatal to the toddler years. Call GWCC for further inquiries. 

 

Parenting Education (Earn While you Learn)

Through a variety of topics that include videos and worksheets and one-on-one mentoring, you will learn important, relevant, and interesting information on how to care for your baby. While participating in the program, please make arrangements if you have other children, as on-site childcare is not available. If child-care is a concern please call our clinic as we understand all circumstances are different and we want to be able to help you, there is flexibility and we can work out a more suitable option for you.

 

Medical Referrals

We offer free referrals for medical services to prenatal care. We also offer referrals for social and housing services.

WIC & Medicaid – We give our mom’s a WIC application, a Medicaid application, including a letter with proof of pregnancy, so they can successfully apply to both services.

Baby Closet (maternity and infant supplies)

As you participate in our Earn While You Learn program, you can earn points that enable you to “purchase” practical items like, baby clothes, blankets, diapers, formula and other supplies for your newborn. Based on received donations we could have items available like cribs, strollers and other baby furniture on most occasions. Baby items are distributed based on a first-come-first-served basis.
