FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Farmington Charity's New Sign Promotes Services for Pregnancy Choices

Another Way Pregnancy Center (AWPC) near Farmington Hills’ 12 Mile & Orchard Lake intersection installed a new road sign on December 27th. In addition to featuring updated information about the non-profit’s free services, the sign now features the organization’s name for its client services operations, “A Woman’s Pregnancy Choice.”

According to AWPC Executive Director Karen Jewell, the “A Woman’s Pregnancy Choice” name has already been used in communications with clients they serve since 2014.

“Too many times women assume there is only one way to solve the problem of their untimely pregnancy,” Jewell said. “AWPC’s services empower a woman with medical information about her pregnancy and resources to learn about all of her outcome options—without fees, pressure, or judgment. Women facing an unintended pregnancy deserve respect, support, and factual information on which they can determine their choice.”

The new name’s focus on giving more options to women facing unplanned pregnancies reflects the stories of women like Dona Tidwell, who came to the center several years ago in the midst of a difficult situation, received help both during and beyond the pregnancy, and now volunteers to assist other women at the center.

“I cannot even express how grateful I am for AWPC,” Tidwell said.  “They not only helped me with the needs of my babies, they helped me with issues I ran into with being able to continue schooling and my goals.”

Under the name “A Woman’s Pregnancy Choice,” AWPC hopes to reach even more than the 400-plus women and men who came to them for help in 2016.

AWPC was incorporated in 1984 to provide emotional and practical assistance to both women and men facing unplanned or untimely pregnancies in Southeast Michigan. They offer a variety of free services, including pregnancy tests, limited obstetric ultrasounds, parenting classes & mentoring, support groups, baby supplies and lay counseling.
