We received this thank you card from a previous patient of ours at Whole Woman’s Health of Austin, thanking us for the care she experienced with the staff in the clinic and telling us how important it is that access remain open in Texas. It’s the support and empowerment from our patients that reminds us the most about just what we’re here to do and it helps us keep providing the great level of care that we’ve always provided. The inside of the card reads:
“To [name omitted] and all of the staff that helped me through a tough procedure on [date omitted]. I was the one whose blood pressure dropped like crazy not too long after the procedure. I wanted to show my gratitude for all that you did for me before, during, and after my abortion. Like many women, I never, ever thought that I would have an abortion and I was scared to death to have it done. But you all show a lot of love and gave me a new perspective on this procedure – that I’m not alone, that it’s not my fault, that it needs to be talked about, and that I should be proud for making the best decision that I could at the moment. I’m so thankful that Whole Woman’s Health exists to support women and I know my life has been changed for the better for what you all have done. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for caring and for continuing to offer women a choice and for persevering with what is probably a very difficult job. I also want to thank [name omitted] for her efforts in providing me an IUD…
…I’m so thankful for my new contraception! I’m having no issues whatsoever with it. What a miracle contraception.
Thank you all so much! Love, [name omitted].”
