Avenue Women’s Center Reviews, May 2023

At long last, May has come and is already passing on.  Memorial Day, the gateway to summer, is just around the corner as I sit down to write this blog!  Have you been busy with graduation activities or family events, making plans for this promising next season?  We all deserve a little rest and relaxation too after enduring the harshest months of winter and reaching this year’s halfway point!  But maybe the season of an unexpected pregnancy is just beginning in your life as your community celebrates the dawning of summer.  Warm days and vacation plans can seem pretty trivial when it feels like difficult circumstances are shaking you to your very core.

Our expert staff at Avenue Women’s Center has your back.  We’re a first-step pregnancy clinic with six convenient locations in Chicagoland.  Avenue has been around since 1981, providing free early pregnancy services to persons coping with the many challenges of an unexpected pregnancy.  We have a strong track record of compassionate, confidential care.  And we’re here to offer the emotional and practical support you need to take your next steps with confidence!
