We are working to establish comprehensive centers nationwide for women and families that uphold Natural Law and promote a New Feminism; a complementary view of humanity that places women, men, and children in loving family circles of trust, stability, and of mutual giving and acceptance. These centers will provide support for natural means of family planning, fertility care, childbirth, breastfeeding, and family life.
Guiding Star Centers will be evident by their empowering atmosphere and the convenience of a ‘one-stop shop’ for all the support women and families need to honor their natural gift of fertility and the important role of motherhood. These Centers will meet the needs of everyday people in holistic, life-affirming ways. We will facilitate cooperation between many providers to better serve women and families in one convenient, professional, welcoming location.
Through the establishment of Guiding Star Centers, we believe we will create a culture that;
- recognizes the true beauty and dignity of women and their families;
- honors and upholds the natural capabilities and uniqueness of our bodies;
- encourages women in all circumstances to embrace their dignity and find empowerment through their uniquely feminine gifts and talents;
- recognizes the importance of every single person on our planet and sees the threads that tie all humanity together.
The Guiding Star model is one of flexibility. Our affiliates move forward in unique ways using the path that best fits their community. Some communities will bring in multiple services simultaneously at the onset while others may take a multiphase approach. With a multiphase approach the community will move forward, filling an unmet need within their community whether it be a maternity home, pregnancy resources center, birthing center, or clinical space. They will work on building a base of support, and then move forward bringing other resources into the space as soon as development allows.
By giving our affiliates the freedom to partner with their community, move forward building relationships, and address their greatest needs at a local level, we are able to support each community in its uniqueness while maintaining consistency within our mission and vision. While the path may look different from city to city, all of our affiliates are working toward the same ultimate goal – doing their part to be leaders within their community, uniting local organizations, and lighting the way to a culture of life!
Throughout this process we want to be relevant to everyone in our nation; whether they are a 17 year old in an unplanned pregnancy, a husband and wife expecting their first child (or tenth), a woman struggling with infertility, a new mom trying to learn how to breastfeed, or just someone looking to learn more about natural methods of fertility care and planning. We see life as beautiful. We see women and their feminine genius as masterful.
The Guiding Star Project challenges the current societal norm of women and women’s health. We believe the attitudes about women’s bodies must change. The messages about women and family life must change. Women’s health care must change. We are here to be the beacon of light proclaiming that women’s bodies were beautifully created!
It’s time to unite our services and celebrate true feminism by embracing what makes women unique and precious.
We want REAL women’s healthcare and support.
