The Sav-A-Life Ministry


Each year, 9000 women in Alabama believe that abortion is the only solution to an unplanned pregnancy. Sav-A-Life, Vestavia is the largest pregnancy care center in the Birmingham metropolitan area and is dedicated to putting an end to abortion not by legal and public policy, but by supporting one woman at a time, to spare her and her child from abortion.

We work to accomplish this goal by offering free and confidential services, counseling, education, and support to empower women to carry their babies to term.

Services


We offer free pregnancy testing, ultrasound, prenatal assessment, STI/STD testing for men and women, childbirth education classes, parenting classes, and fatherhood programming.

Counseling


We provide a safe, friendly, and non-judgmental environment where clients can discuss their fears and concerns and receive vital information regarding their health, pregnancy, and options. Trained staff and volunteers offer confidential Christian counseling for men and women.

Counseling topics include:
  • Pregnancy options
    • Abortion
    • Adoption
    • Parenting
  • Abortion risks and long-term effects
  • Fetal development
  • Emergency contraceptives (morning after pill and RU-486)
  • The Gospel

  

Education


Trained staff and volunteers educate both women and men about the alternatives to abortion, risks and long-term effects of abortion, emergency contraceptives, and sexually transmitted infections. With this knowledge, clients are empowered to make informed decisions and bring needed restoration their lives.

  

  

Support


Our services aren't just a one-time meeting. The mentoring department is designed to build relationships with our clients and their families by offering one-on-one mentoring that provides confidential Christian counseling, support, and prayer. Bible studies, support groups, and peer counseling are also part of the relationship building process.

In addition, Sav-A-Life offers material assistance through the Stork's Nest Clothes Closet. Clients earn Mommy Money and Daddy Dollars by attending various classes and can use these to purchase much needed baby items, such as diapers, baby and maternity clothing, strollers, cribs and more.

Sav-A-Life also refers clients for community resources such as housing, Medicaid, and local church support.

We believe that abortion is often the result of a lack of resources, education, and support. Sav-A-Life offers practical, compassionate ways to remove the barriers that cause women to choose abortion and provide the opportunity for every client who walks through our doors to make positive choices for themselves and for their unborn children.

SYDNEY'S STORY




RICHARD AND JASMINE'S STORY


Sav-A-Life is important to people like me. After becoming ill during my second pregnancy I wasn't able to work but knew all the responsibilities that came with having children. So, the stressing out started. I was accustomed to working. With my first baby I left the classroom going to the hospital in labor. Now I was starting to get depressed until I went for that first ultrasound and saw my sweet baby. I knew it was God's grace. I was offered the opportunity to attend the different classes Sav-A-Life has and one day I finally took advantage of them. It was a true blessing for me and my family.  I did the weekly one on one classes with one of the volunteers and was able to earn Mommy Money that allowed me to pick things I need for my baby.  This helped because I felt like I was helping my then boyfriend (now my husband) support our growing family. After falling in love with Sav-A-Life I invited my husband to join me at a Saturday class. He started coming with me and fell in love with the fellowship of the guys! Then we started attending Thursday night classes. Now we hate to miss a week. Everyone at Sav-A-Life is special.  To give and serve the way they do is a true blessing.  They impact so many families in ways they never imagined they would.  My family and I are forever grateful. - Jasmine
