Media, Mind and Body

We all have the opportunity to choose if and when we want to be sexually active. Oftentimes, we turn to popular media and our friends to help us navigate how to make relational and sexual health decisions. However, these sources of information aren’t always accurate. For example, engaging in sexual activity is not necessarily as casual as media portrays…

Welcome!

Welcome to the Cambridge Pregnancy Resource Centre blog! We’re so happy you stopped by! We hope this online space can be a resource for you to learn more about your sexual and relational health choices, as well as how to navigate a pregnancy experience.

Who we are & what we do:

Our trained staff and volunteers are here to welcome you into a safe place to process your thoughts and make decisions that are best for you. We are available to talk to you about all three choices (abortion, adoption, parenting) that an individual in Canada can choose should they find themselves in an unintended pregnancy situation. Our services are completely free and confidential. We are not medical professionals, therefore confirmation of pregnancy, abortions, and professional counseling services are beyond our scope of practice. In addition to one-on-one options support, we offer group sessions for dads and women who are healing from a past abortion experience. For more information about our services, please call our Centre at 519-620-0204.

Looking forward:

In the future, we hope to unpack topics such as how to identify (un)healthy relationships, the importance of getting tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and more! If there is a specific area of interest you would like to learn more about on the blog, feel free to send an email to admin@pregcentre.com
