Our Story

Shawna Dunn, the center’s current executive director driven by her personal experience and passion to serve, started MIDLANDS WOMENS CENTER Pregnancy Center in July 1998.  Although Shawna spearheaded the founding of the center many friends and community members played integral roles in getting the pregnancy center off the ground.  


Today, MIDLANDS WOMENS CENTER is governed by a Board of Directors and although some of the original board members have moved on, the center still remains based on the original founding principles.  In the many years since its opening the center has impacted many families in our community and served several thousand clients
