Childbirth & Development Classes
Childbirth, Infant Development and Infant Massage classes prepare expectant parents for the birth of their child through multi-session classes. Parents also receive knowledge about the growth stages from infant to toddler.
In addition, the Infant Massage class is designed for new parents and their babies to promote communication and bonding through loving touch. All of these classes are taught by a certified RN or therapist.
Trained volunteers and staff offer hope and healing through counsel, aid and education. When you face challenges in parenting, relationships and life in general, compassionate women and men are here to help and offer support.
Our Baby Boutique is open to women and men who participate in the Bridges Program. By attending Bridges classes and/or meeting with a life coach, you will have the opportunity to earn “Baby Bucks.” These vouchers can in turn be used to “purchase” new and gently used baby items in our Boutique.
Potentially available items include:
- Infant clothes
- Baby care items (lotion, wash, shampoo, etc.)
MOMS (Moms Offering Moms Support)
Our 8-week parenting class is taught by a certified professional. It focuses on specific family and childcare issues up to the first three years of a child’s life. The goal is to provide the positive foundation for parenting, thereby reducing the likelihood of abuse or neglect.
Our MOMS Group (Moms Offering Moms Support) provides support and discussion on “Hot Topics” from a spiritual and Biblical perspective. Topics include:
- Child Safety
- Domestic Violence
- Wellness and Prevention
Through Malachi Men and the individual mentoring program, we will show men a new perspective on what it really means to be a responsible father; one who leaves a legacy of love for his children to remember him by. With fatherless children rates at an all-time high in America, we will EQUIP men to take a stand for manhood, and be all the fathers they could be for the next generation.
Healing Effects of Abortion Related Trauma (HEART)
HEART is a caring and confidential, seven-week support group that offers understanding and healing to women and men who are experiencing the painful effects of a past abortion.
Our mission is to assist women and men in their personal journey towards healing from the emotional and spiritual trauma of abortion, by providing caring support, education, and guidance.
Health care professionals have identified the emotional trauma experienced from an abortion as Post Abortion Syndrome. The aftermath of an abortion may bring thoughts too painful to deal with, and often individuals choose to repress or deny that it is the abortion that is causing them to feel badly.
Tears of Hope
Tears of Hope is a confidential, six-week program designed to assist individuals dealing with the pain associated with miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant death. Peer counselors guide individuals through the specific steps of emotional healing and restoration.

- How can God help me with the loss of my baby?
- Where do I go to find the truth?
Where does life come from?
There is hope and healing for you!
