Since 2004, we have provided comprehensive services to survivors of abuse (including birth related trauma) during the transitions to parenting. We provide information and support to family and friends in need of resources, and care-providers looking for information and training to better meet the needs of clients in their care.
We support women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse, trauma within interpersonal relationships, sexual violence, familial violence, and/or trauma from a previous pregnancy and/or birth experience(s). We also provide services to male survivors of abuse as they become fathers. As an organization, we are politically committed to challenging & changing the institutional policies and practices that contribute to the re-victimization of individuals and communities, and to questioning normative ideas about how individuals ‘should’ feel about becoming pregnant, giving birth, and the experience of mothering or fathering.
