Sarita's Story

The saying goes—it takes a village to raise a child. To the women we serve, you’re their village. But saving that child’s life takes an entire team, as Sarita shares with you below in her own words.

“I was in such a comfortable place before I found out I was pregnant. I was 28 years old, raising my daughter and managing motherhood well while focusing on my career in the medical field. My work schedule aligned perfectly with her school schedule, and our day-to-day life was molded around the two of us so that we could be happy and content. I enjoyed the freedom I had. Life was good.

But two pink lines on a pregnancy test would quickly change that feeling.

“When I found out I was pregnant, it took a toll on me – mentally and physically. I was in a constant battle between myself and my baby. I didn’t know what to do, where to start, who to look to – who to rely on.”

So, she turned to a place she knew. A place she could feel safe.

“I went to Alcove Health because I was comfortable with them. I came here 9 years ago with my first child. I knew I could trust them.

I experienced a family at Alcove – a mother, a nurturer, and a team who healed me back to life. I felt uplifted and empowered. I knew Alcove was where I could leave my tears, and when I walked out those doors, my shoulders would no longer be heavy. I didn’t leave feeling like a patient. I left feeling like I was a daughter loved and cared for by the whole team.”

As Sarita continued, she talked about the women on our team who impacted her.

“The moment I walked through the doors, Candra’s presence at the front desk made me feel safe and put a smile on my face—and every time after. She is a jewel. Karen, my advocate, and Kinta, my nurse, are my light and protectors. In the darkest time of my life, they found a way to make it my brightest. If it wasn’t for the two of them, I don’t know where I would be today”.

Since my first visit, I have become a better woman and mother. I love this team with every ounce of me, and I know that my time with them will live with me for the rest of my life. I can see that God sent them to save lives. They saved my life and my daughter Gabby’s life”.
