As we embrace the excitement of a new year, nature is still tending to a wintery garden of ice and sleet. The cold months are often quiet, shutting us indoors to watch the powdery flakes, tugged around by the wind, fill up our yard with snow. But even if all is silent, there is still much happening around us as we huddle through the frosty season that always comes to visit. Minute by minute, the days are beginning to stretch out, the shortest one of the year passing us by as the days grow longer. It’s a change that may seem imperceptible at first, but there is often a moment where we realize for a little while, our sense of time is going to be different. This will not be forever, as the twilight lasting just a few hours longer will eventually end with the arrival of a season promising more sun. The compassionate staff at Avenue Women’s Center understands the challenges of difficult changes, no matter how temporary they may be. Our centers are committed to serving women who have found themselves in an unexpected pregnancy situation by walking beside them during this period of adjustment. We are thrilled to hear back from clients who felt safe trusting us in a time of emotional vulnerability, feeling stabilized by the comfort they found through Avenue.
An unexpected pregnancy can lead to many changes, and Avenue Women’s Center is here to work with clients to ease their nerves and help them regain a sense of stability. Through a nonjudgmental environment, we offer women the opportunity to take a free, medical-grade pregnancy test before meeting with our staff for a private consultation. Our caring pregnancy consultants can meet with women to address their concerns, ensuring they have access to reliable information so clients may feel confident about their pregnancy decision. With six centers located in Darien, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Naperville, West Chicago, and Wood Dale, Illinois, Avenue Women’s Center aims to be an accessible resource for unexpected pregnancy help.
