Surrendering the Secret

options logo

Abortion is not a secret anymore, but despite this openness, many women have pain and experiences that they don’t feel comfortable telling anyone. Many women hold this secret deep inside, and are suffering severe consequences.

Options Pregnancy Centre wants women to know there is hope, and there is help. “Surrendering the Secret” allows women who need help to connect with women who can help. This will be an ongoing program offered at the Centre, with the first group beginning on April 5, 2022. You can learn how to register at reginapregnancy.com.
