Ana Schaetzle was born and raised in Brazil, and moved to Kona in 2004. Ana is a Medical Doctor, licensed in Brazil, with a degree in Pediatrics and specialization in Neonatology. Prior to coming to Kona she worked for 10 years in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in one of the 5 major hospitals in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. As the Lord called Ana out of the hospital and into the mission field she felt that He broadened her mission of saving premature newborn babies’ lives.
In a way, Ana still works toward saving babies but now they are in-womb and her approach is the same as The Pregnancy Center’s Holistic vision which is to “educate, encourage and equip men and women to understand the SACREDNESS OF HUMAN LIFE, the importance of SEXUAL INTEGRITY and the value of the FAMILY as a foundational pillar of society”.
“As The Pregnancy Center, we care for the unborn babies but our focus is on the person who comes to us for help (men and women). They are the ones that need to experience God’s love, grace and LIFE through us! That’s the only way that an unborn baby can be saved from abortion: by the work the Lord does in the mother and father’s HEART!
Ana is also a proud home-school mom of 2 beautiful girls: Julia (8) and JoAna (6).
