Pinkpeas has not always been a building.
It’s an idea. A dream.
Our founder has been working for more than a decade to provide incredible, life changing and affordable care to women and their unborn children. And she has been successful. The testimonies abound in Las Vegas at how Pinkpeas has changed their lives for the better. We grow women. Wives. Families.
As a nation, we have come to a time of uncertainty for many about the future of their healthcare. The younger generation is footing the bill for the older. Where does this leave our women of childbearing years? How many young women aren’t seeking care for the next generation due to financial reasons? Many more than you might think. Seeking prenatal care through an OB can cost hundreds of dollars per visit within most healthcare plans now. Many families are faced with a terrible choice: prenatal care or rent. Or food for their young family. Or paying other crucial bills.

Have you ever heard of suspended coffee?
Taken from suspended coffee dot com:
“When you buy a coffee, you pay for a second one. The barista gives you your coffee, then logs the second coffee as “suspended” (meaning that the transaction has been paused, or not yet completed – the money has been received, but the coffee has not yet been delivered).When someone who can’t afford a coffee comes in, they can ask whether there are any “suspended” coffees. The barista checks the log and, if there are any pre-paid coffees, the person is given a free coffee. The transaction is then considered complete. The tradition of suspended coffee dates back more than a century to Naples, though it declined in popularity after World War II. During the recent global economic crisis, the practice was revived and, in the age of social media, suspended coffee quickly became a global phenomenon. Who is eligible to receive the free coffee/food? The premise is that anyone in need can seek this out. Each business will need to decide who they feel in need. I don’t believe it is for us to judge who is in need and who is not. Ultimately, if someone is approaching you to ask for a suspended coffee, they are probably in need in some way. When we say ‘in need’, it’s not just someone who is homeless. It may be a single mother of 7 children who can’t afford coffee that month inthe grocery shopping. She may just need a coffee to get her through the day and a break while her kids are all at school. You may have a man walk in, well-groomed and dressed in a business suit… you may not think from appearances that he is ‘in need’, but he may be on skid row and in his 16th week of job hunting. It can be for a student struggling with exams. It’s all about using your judgement and spreading a little kindness by paying it forward.
Now, apply this principal to prenatal visits and care. It’s a brilliant idea. It will work beautifully, but only if you do your part today.
Pinkpeas offers prenatal care that is affordable. Not just any prenatal care either. Sure, pregnant women can weigh themselves, hear the heartbeat of their unborn, check blood pressure, but there is so much more to actual care than that. Pinkpeas prenatal care consists of groups that are 2 hours in length and offered two days each week. Women come in to share concerns, questions, trials and triumphs to a caring team of women who fully understand what it takes to give great care and to receive great care.
Imagine. The rising generation of mothers…….. being mothered themselves. Being built up and loved. Being encouraged throughout the most vulnerable time in life – pregnancy, to go back home and give their husbands, homes and families what they need to thrive. It’s not typical, but it IS normal. And necessary. Welcome to Pinkpeas. How can we help you?
How can you help us? We need the help of our community. YOU. Pinkpeas has not always been a building, but our building is crucial to the success of hundreds of families in our city.

Help us help the next young mother that comes through our doors. Help us keep our doors open. We are seeking 1,000 donations of $60 each. This will keep our doors open for the next three years. 100% of monies donated are eligible to be tax exempt, as Pinkpeas is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
