1. To Confirm A Pregnancy
Most people come to us to find out if they are for sure pregnant. They may be late for their period and suspect a pregnancy or have even taken a home pregnancy test but want to be sure. An O.B. Ultrasound, read by a doctor, is the best way to truly confirm your pregnancy and the to find out how far along you are. That’s exactly what we offer – at no cost. When trying to work through your options, this is critical information to have. We also check for an ectopic pregnancy and to make sure your body isn’t already miscarrying, making that decision for you.
2. To Get Abortion Information
Some are considering abortion and want to make sure they know all they need to know first. Because we don’t provide or refer for abortions, we don’t profit from anyone’s decision, making us a safe place to get accurate information and ask all your questions. Our nurses are knowledgeable and up to date on all of the different procedures and what’s involved. There is no judgment and no pressure – we are here for you no matter what you decide.
3. Because They Aren't Sure if They Really Want an Abortion
Some feel abortion is their only choice but don’t really want to have one. They often have many obstacles in their path or have people pressuring them to abort. We believe strongly that no one should ever feel pressured to abort (that’s actually illegal and we can help with that) or feel like abortion is their only option. Once a pregnancy is confirmed, we can help you come up with a plan. We will look at all of the obstacles and see what resources and support we have available to help you either be able to parent or place the baby for adoption if that is what you would prefer to do. Sometimes the help is short term, other times it’s long-term, including enrollment in our Family Support program, which helps parents get all the items they need for taking care of a baby by taking parenting and life skill classes. If someone is only choosing abortion because they lack resources and support then abortion is then not a real choice, it’s an act of desperation. Most women are unaware of all the help that is available. We want to make sure every woman who doesn’t actually want to have an abortion, doesn’t have to have one. We also provide abortion pill reversal referrals for those who have taken the first pill and change their mind.
4. To Have a Safe Place to Talk it Through
Many come to us undecided. Oftentimes they have taken an at-home pregnancy test and are panicked or confused. They are not sure who to tell or where to get answers. They often don’t want to go somewhere public like a hospital, but somewhere with minimal people where they are less likely to run into people they know. That’s what we provide – complete confidentiality. We deal with all different situations. Sometimes people need help and resources, other times they just need a little info, or some reassurance and a minute to catch their breath. We are that safe space to land.
