Miscarriages are painful and it’s hard to move past the fear of these events. You feel like you have to be strong and... shouldn’t feel so many emotions even a year later. Starting point is the one place I have found with caring, nonjudgmental individuals who help without pushing their emotions on you. They have helped me heal those scars and overcome the fear of my current pregnancy. They have given me an hour a week that I truly feel safe in their building. I wish I knew this community existed sooner. I have made last minute ultrasounds and appointments because I get scared, and they are always accommodating. I have found a family that “gets it” and wants nothing more than to support me every step, no matter what decision I make. I will forever be grateful for Starting Point.Things I love- the people, texting for appointments, late evening availability, I have control over what I want to learn, and the baby bucks!read more

They are so friendly! I’m naturally a very nervous person with new places. And I was going in. But they were so sweet... and all around great. I felt listened to and understood. They are willing to help me and refer me in the right direction. I plan to donate as soon as I can just because I believe they are doing great things for people in this more
