Sanctity of Life Ministries (SLM) exists to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and affirm life in the womb. We fulfill our mission by offering compassionate support, education and medical services to those who face challenging sexual health decisions. We want to present “Life in Christ…Life in the Womb” to the many women who come in.
SLM consists of the NOVA Pregnancy Help Centers in Fairfax city and Alexandria; medical clinics that provide free and confidential services to women facing an unexpected pregnancy. We assist over 700 women each year by providing free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, peer counseling done by our trained volunteers and classes to prepare for birth and parenting. Our medical team is overseen by an Obstetrician/Gynecologist and staffed by Registered Nurses who are fully trained in Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound procedures.
We offer “Earn While You Learn” classes where clients meet with a mentor during their pregnancy and learn about various topics including Bonding with your Baby and Newborn Care. Upon completion of each class, the woman earns “points” she then uses to select brand new items in our “Baby Boutique”, such as new baby clothes, car seat, stroller and more. Many women find us through our NOVA Pregnancy Help Centers client website.
In addition to helping women at the pregnancy centers, we work with many local churches to promote the sanctity of human life. We produce a fact sheet for Sanctity of Human Life Sunday each January.
SLM is affiliated with the following organizations:
National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA)
