TOB Tuesday: What's new in Austin

Over the summer I shared an airport shuttle ride with a woman from the a special kind of pro-life center. The John Paul II Life Center is a kind of all-round women's health center, focusing not only on helping women through and beyond crisis pregnancies with a full range of obstetric care, but also treating infertility (with NaPro TECHNOLOGY, which is completely consistent with the Catholic Church's values). Women from adolescence to menopause come for routine gyn screenings. You know, women's health the way it is meant to be.

But wait, there's more! The center offers NFP training, birthing classes, even an infertility support group.

If you're in the Austin area, you probably already know about the fundraiser on December 5; if not, you might want to support what is hopefully only the first full-service center of its kind.

Sr. Anne, you should also be aware of Dignity Women's Center in San Antonio, TX. It's run by a Catholic couple... Steve Pilkington, an OBGYN trained in Na-Pro and tubal reversals; Amber Pilkington, a licensed counselor. In fact, Amber wrote a workbook called, "Women, Food & Christ" on eating disorders, healthy body image, etc., based on Theology of the Body. She herself has recovered from an eating disorder after being a model for a while. Very interesting story, and great couple!
