In an effort to better serve the Aitkin community, LAPS spoke at the health and human services staff meeting at Aitkin County on August. 14. Thank you for having us Aitkin County Human Services!
Brainerd lakes area residents may now take part in #MeToo, a national movement that took off on social media in October when women came forward to share their experiences of sexual assault and harassment.
Come sign our board:
If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write; #metoo
If you want to talk to someone about your story, we at Lakes Area Pregnancy Support (LAPS), are here to listen. No judgment. Just someone who cares. All of us here have a #MeToo story. You are not alone.
The day had finally come when I saw two pink lines. I was a mix of emotions of mostly excitement and a little bit nervous. My husband and I were married in October of 2016. We both knew we wanted more children. I have a step daughter by marriage. We found out we were expecting on my birthday. This was my first pregnancy and as ready as I was for this baby I still wanted to know more.
Karen was my worker who helped me out during my pregnancy. I found out about LAPS by my neighbor since she was pregnant at the same time. Karen helped me learn how to create less stress in my life through talking, videos, and prayers. All the classes gave us a chance to better ourselves as parents. They have awesome clothing selections and baby items to get set up. The best was the baby crib and mattress set which was gently used. Everyone at LAPS has been and had been very helpful and nice since we started through the program. I always let people know where to go if they need some additional help and support. LAPS is amazing.
Thank you for all you have done for us this past year.
