This morning on social media I saw the happy news – a young couple that I know had their first baby. They are incredibly happy – thrilled – excited. That’s the way we always hope it is when a new baby arrives.
Sometimes that isn’t the way it happens. That is why the Apple Pregnancy Care Center is here. Apple stands for “Aiding Problem Pregnancies with Love and Encouragement.”
For nearly forty years, Apple has been helping women, men and families in the Chippewa Valley. If you or someone you know needs help, support and education, or maternity and baby items – we’re here for you.
Our Earn While You Learn Program offers curriculum (called Bright Course) for pregnant women and moms and dads. There are lessons about pregnancy, childbirth, bringing home your baby, and so much more. As you learn, you are supported by the Center. You earn points to purchase everything we have in our Center.
We have maternity clothing, baby clothes, diapers, formula, cribs, car seats, strollers, toys – basically any item you may need. These items are all donated to Apple by people in the community. Can you imagine the relief for someone who is wondering how they are going to provide for their new baby? It feels so great to know that you earned these items as well.
This week one of our moms came in to introduce us to her beautiful baby girl. Those are always special moments for us – and for her of course! Not only did she bring her new baby, she brought items to donate back to us that she didn’t need. She had more than she needed because she had the support of her family.
If you’re struggling and need help with diapers or formula, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to call Apple Pregnancy Care Center at 715-834-5254. We’d love to meet you and help you with the Bright Course curriculum. We’re here for you.
