Support PHC Torrance

Cecilia & Jeremiah

FullSizeRender_1I came to the Center because I saw one of your billboards, and since I thought I was pregnant, I decided to confirm it. When I came to the Center I was 6 or 7 weeks. I had my first ultrasound here, which was wonderful.

My husband and I have three children and he was not supportive about having another baby. Even though I wanted to keep this baby I was feeling pressure to terminate. From the first time I sat down with a client advocate I felt comfort from the stress I was experiencing. I realized I could walk through it with God and we would be ok.

When I was 10 weeks my husband insisted I have an abortion. At 14 weeks I had a serious car accident. I was hemorrhaging, and had very little support from my husband. My situation was delicate, but I was still pregnant. At 20 weeks the Dr. told me I had partial placenta previa and I had to have physical therapy. Still, my husband wasn’t supportive and never came to a doctor’s appointment with me. I only gained about fifteen pounds in this pregnancy, probably because of the stress, and I had a few emotional breakdowns during the pregnancy.

Finally, I told my husband: “I’m not going into labor with your negative attitude, so either support me or I don’t want you in the labor room.” He finally came around and became supportive. After the baby was born, he told me he was glad I decided to have our son. He’s been a great dad and help to me.

I had a positive experience at the Center. I got MediCal and other information I needed, and lots of support through a very stressful pregnancy. Three words I would use to describe the Pregnancy Help Center: Supportive. Caring. Informative.
