Eva's Place Conversations
Positive pregnancy test, or just think you might be? Unsure what to do? Thinking about abortion? Thinking about carrying to term? You can feel safe having a conversation with someone who listens and helps you find answers to your questions.
Full of new or nearly new baby items. From clothes to cots, bibs to blankets, nappies to nappy bags, the Boutique has all you as a mum will need for your baby. Access to these goods is through participation in the Mentoring Programme. As you meet regularly with your mentor and participate in the programme, you earn “Eva’s Place Dollars” which can then be “spent” in the Baby Boutique. Everything you “purchase” is yours to keep.
Eva’s Place Mentoring
A unique opportunity for you to gain friendship, life skills, pregnancy care knowledge and parenting skills through regular meetings with a mentor. You can meet as often as you need to empower you to learn, grow and be a good mother to your child.

About Eva’s Place
Becoming pregnant unexpectedly can be a frightening time…a time that can leave you feeling out of control and anxious about your future. One of the most effective ways to get back a sense of control in your life is to ensure that you are armed with all the facts you need to make the best decision about your future.
