Healing for Body, Mind, and Soul

Haley knew she needed to get tested for an STD, but where could she go?

After a quick search online, Woman’s New Life Center popped up. She wasn’t familiar with this place, but after scrolling through some positive reviews, she decided this was a place she could trust, a nonjudgmental place where she could feel comfortable.

At her appointment with our nurse Maureen, Haley found the help and attention she needed as well as a message she didn’t expect to hear. Maureen spoke to her about living a healthy lifestyle and about her fertility. She recommended that she learn more about her fertility and gave her the card of one of our fertility care instructors.

Haley lit up. She had been thirsting for this and didn’t even know it.

“I have a lot of friends who could benefit from these services,” she told Maureen. As she left, Haley expressed her gratitude for the kindness and help we gave her.

Did you know Woman’s New Life Center offers STD testing?

This fits with our mission to promote the sanctity of life, the dignity of women, and the sacredness of sexuality because it allows us even more opportunities to speak to women of their dignity and encourage them in healthy sexual practices. It allows us to have the conversation about healthy lifestyles and fertility, which isn’t always the case with unplanned pregnancy.

“It provides the right avenue to have these conversations,” said Maureen Lavastida, one of our Baton Rouge nurses. In Baton Rouge, we are able to offer testing thanks to a partnership with Dr. Charles Aycock. In New Orleans, we are able to offer testing through Hope Woman’s Clinic. Click here for more info.

Regarding his work with us for this STD testing program, Dr. Aycock stated, “‘As you did to the least of My brethren, you did it to Me’ (Mt 25:40). That is why we do what we do at [Woman’s] New Life Center. The unborn, least in the eyes of man, but precious to God, must be protected. Any vehicle to get mothers in the Center as early as possible should increase our chances to save that child. Offering STI screening is a step forward, allowing for that earlier contact. I am pleased to offer my services to [Woman’s] New Life Center in this new endeavor.”

Because of YOU, more women like Haley are hearing of their dignity and encountering healing for body, mind, and soul.
