The Safe Haven Pregnancy Center celebrated its grand opening Saturday in Asan.
“We are all so excited that it has finally come to fruition,” said Jen Nauta, director of the safe haven.
Nauta said the center will offer free classes on pregnancy, birth, life skills, parenting and breastfeeding. The center also will offer tutoring classes for those working to earn their GED.
Parents or parents-to-be can attend classes and earn points toward the center’s “blessing room,” where they can redeem the points for new or gently used baby items.
The center will offer pregnancy tests, Nauta said, and is raising money to purchase an ultrasound machine to offer scans for women who are expecting. Adoption referrals and post-abortion recovery counseling also will be available.
The Safe Haven Pregnancy Center will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1 to 5 p.m.
Nauta said the center's door is open to both men and women who need assistance with a pregnancy or with child-rearing skills.
“I really want those who feel like having another baby would be too much or they don’t know what to do in this situation to know there is a place on Guam that they can go and get help,” Nauta said.
Those wishing to donate can email the center at email@example.com.
