Serving people of all faiths
At 19, Jayda was diagnosed with mental illness. She had difficulty with relationships and an unplanned pregnancy. Without a job, living at home with her dad and step-mom, she was scared and didn’t know how to care for herself or her unborn baby. That’s when she connected with Catholic Charities. A Pregnancy Support Coordinator met with Jayda in her parent’s home. Over the next few months, her pregnancy support coordinator ensured Jayda had proper prenatal care, linked her to community resources, provided emotional support, and helped Jayda reduce her tobacco use.
The pregnancy support coordinator continued to meet with Jayda after delivering a healthy baby boy – bringing ‘hands on’ practical learning into the home. Together, they worked on nurturing, safe parenting skills to help her baby grow and thrive. With help from Jayda’s parents too and continued visits from her pregnancy support coordinator, Jayda has truly become the best mom she can be.
