September 2016

“The staff and support system at Everywoman’s was more than I could have asked for. In a time of fear and need these women were able to normalize the situation for me and knew how to bring me back to calm and not feel alone as we often do in times like these.
I am thankful for the very down to earth counsellor I had spoken to. She was very informative and helpful in taking the time I needed to talk through everything with me. Honestly, to this day I still think of some of her words of advice and it has been continuing to help me through the process…Thank you for being very comforting and supportive when I needed it the most!”
September 2016

My pregnancy was quite unexpected and somewhat unwanted. I had never been pregnant or had an abortion, so I didn’t know what to expect from Everywoman’s. Having said that, my experience at your clinic was of the utmost professionalism. Every member of your team I encountered on the phone or in person was very sensitive to the matter. The counsellor I spoke with was fantastic, as was the receptionist, the nurse, and everyone else. The literature provided to patients, to the patient’s companion, and the ease in which my appointment was made, all through to the end of the procedure helped lessen my emotional and psychological pain. Thank you.”
July 2016

“I’d like to thank you all again for taking such great care of me and making a very stressful day go as smoothly as possible. Your clinic is excellent and I’m glad I chose to go there. Thank you Everywoman’s Health Centre!”
May 2016

Everyone there was wonderful and supportive. You all made a difficult situation so much easier to handle.  I appreciate you all so much!
January 2016

“I was incredibly stressed and anxious prior to my appointment. Even though I’d read up on the procedure, I had no idea how I would feel emotionally, during and after my appointment. From the moment I stepped foot in the clinic, my anxiety began to subside. I felt better after the counsellor explained what was to be expected throughout my entire appointment. I saw a different female staff member for every stage of my appointment, which under normal circumstances, would have increased my anxiety. However, each and every staff member was incredibly gracious, calming, and informative. Not once did I feel neglected, judged, or uncomfortable in the presence of the staff members — especially the nurse who was in the room with me. Even though I never ever want to experience this again, I am so pleased with the way Everywoman’s Health Centre has dedicated their time and effort to creating a safe space for women, who are faced with one of the most mentally and emotionally difficult situations they could go through.”
January 2016

“I would just like to thank all of the staff at Everywoman’s Health Centre. I appreciate your kindness and gentle care. From the very beginning of my experience with your health centre I felt supported and taken care of. Thank you, you are truly amazing women.”
December 2015

“On the day of my abortion, I was extremely nervous but my experience was made very comfortable by the staff at every woman’s health centre. The counsellor helped me more than words can say. I had conflicted feelings (knowing I was making the right decision, and yet feeling sad and scared) but she spoke to me with genuine care, answering any questions I had, and assuring that I was being well taken care of.”
November 2015

“I was astonished with the the amazing care I received at the clinic, as was my mom, who accompanied me throughout the procedure. While confident in my decision, the choice was not an easy one for me, and I am thankful the entire process was handled without judgement and with compassion and understanding. I could not be more thankful and humbled by the care I received.”

“Immediately upon entering Everywoman’s Health Centre I knew I’d come to the right place. The staff was genuine, I was actually listened to after being asked a question, my nerves were put at ease , and I was comfortable. Not nervous and comfortable! I didn’t think this was even an option for a woman who needed an abortion! Thank you to all the lovely staff at EWHC, I feel so much better!”
November 2014

“I just wanted to send you a quick thank you (since I’m guessing you don’t get it often enough) and let you know that I’m so blessed, relieved and happy that there is a team of people that truly care about the welfare of their patients, obviously are passionate about their jobs and take extreme care to make the lives of others better. I was scared and mistrustful of doctors due to bad experiences but you have completely changed my opinion!  Keep doing an amazing job and thank you, thank you, thank you!”
August 2014

“This was a difficult decision for me personally. However, making the choice I did and having it done in a safe and loving environment has helped with my healing process more than you will ever know. When I think of my appointment, I think of how  you all made me feel incredibly secure…So, if any of you ever doubt yourselves or are having a bad day, I hope you all know you have made a difference in my life. Thank you for accepting me and my choice, thank you for not judging me, thank you for listening to me and foremost thank you for protecting me.”
August 2014

“All the staff here were absolutely fantastic. I was going through a hard time but every single person I can in contact with when I was at the clinic made me feel so comfortable and at ease. The counsellor I spoke to was so fantastic I can’t even put it into words. Thank you to all of you ladies who were there for me that day to help me and take care of me.”
June 2014

“In a very unfortunate situation, I had a very fortunate experience with everyone I came in to contact with at Everywoman’s Health Centre: from the initial phone call to the counsellor to all staff handling pre/during/post medical operations. Besides the clear and straight forward way information is presented on the website, the main reason we chose Everywoman’s Health Centre is because partners could be present in the room at the time of the procedure.  He wanted to be at the Centre as much as I did, yet everyone treated both of us with equal respect and without negative emotion. In this negative situation we had the best possible positive experience. Thank you to everyone at Everywoman’s Health Centre. Everything is very much appreciated.”
May 2014

“In light of a challenging situation, I was very grateful to be in an environment that was comfortable and completely supportive. I was made to feel at peace, and that was more than what I could have hoped for in my situation. Thank you so much for providing the service that you do. And thank you for doing so in a way that put me and my partner at ease, when it would have been so easy to remain so very clinical and cold.”
April 2014

“I felt so supported and cared for. True sisterhood. Words cannot express, so a simple thank you will have to do.”
Aug. 2013

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for the care and support my partner and I had throughout the whole time we were at the clinic. This was a decision that my partner and i did not make lightly and we were still feeling quite anxious about it, however that changed when we arrived at the clinic. Thank you for supporting us in the decision that we were making, and providing us with an environment that was non-judgemental, loving, and friendly, where the staff were with you 100 percent. We left not with a sense of shame and guilt but with a sense of relief knowing that we had made the best decision possible for us right now, as difficult as it was, and left feeling that we had love and support throughout the whole time that we were there. Thank you again!”
June 2013

“I just want to say thank you so much for a warm, caring environment. I knew this is what I wanted, but still had some anxieties until I walked in the doors to your clinic. I knew I would be treated with respect and my decision was fully supported by everyone there. I felt no shame or guilt afterwards, just a sense of relief that I was able to trust myself to make this difficult decision, and that I had somewhere safe to go. I can’t tell you how appreciative I am of your services, and I will be FOREVER grateful. My partner and I will also be donating monthly to support this amazing clinic. Thank you again and again for believing in the option to choose when and if women decide to start a family.”

April 2012

“I must send you many thanks again for the quality of treatment, both throughout the surgery itself and perhaps even more so for the mental and emotional help you provided during. It really made all the difference in making me feel at peace with my decision and conciliation within and after the process. Keep up the good work, you are making miracles in every woman that can walk out your doors calm in her heart. Much love and respect for all the work you do, in all cases.”

“I felt from start to finish that I was in a safe, female-centred environment where I was free from judgement. Seeing that many women have come together professionally to provide a safe place and a women-only environment was not only reassuring but also inspiring in a way. I would really like to be a part of some place like Everywoman’s someday, so I can make women like myself feel as safe and welcome and powerful as I did the day I was there. I can’t thank these amazing women enough and I will never forget their kindness and comfort at a time I thought I was beyond being comforted.”

“I just want to thank everyone for being so professional and making my experience a comforting one. I really appreciate how well I was treated and handled with extreme care!”

“I was very surprised by the warmth of the staff and my speedy recovery after the procedure. Thank you for everything. You made a difficult day and decision a little easier.”

“Thank you for everything! Your clinic is amazing, very friendly helpful staff!”

“I would like to say that you have a great staff here. They are totally helpful and caring. Today I came here alone, I felt alone, but the staff made me feel like I was not alone. Thanks for all your excellent support.”

“Everything is excellent and all the nurses, counsellor, doctor and receptionist made me feel my decision was respected and helped me go through everything with ease! Keep up the good work!”

“The environment at the clinic is caring, supportive and empowering. Thank you for making this the best experience that it could be!”

“You are doing a wonderful job and the staff here is excellent. I found the clinic to be friendly, open, honest and straightforward. The manner in which the staff speaks eliminates the shame and guilt. Thank you for giving the option of choice. ”

“Everyone was very friendly, patient, caring and informative without being too technical which made it easy to understand everything.”

“Having an abortion wasn’t a decision I made lightly, but any anxiety I may have had disappeared because of the wonderful support system of the staff. I don’t think there is anything that could be done better than what is already being done. Thank you again so much.”
