We offer free pregnancy tests and confirmation. The tests are 99% accurate and can detect possible pregnancy as early as 7 days after conception. The tests are self-read. We are not a medical facility and do not diagnose. A volunteer peer counselor will be on hand to assist you with the process and discuss your results.
At our pregnancy center, we aim to present you with information about all of your legal pregnancy options so you can make the best choice for you and your baby. Our volunteers are trained to offer direction and support to women and men of all ages who are facing an unplanned pregnancy.
Ultrasounds are scheduled following a positive pregnancy test at the discretion of our staff. Ultrasounds are not performed in our office.
If you are pregnant and considering abortion, our volunteer peer counselors can provide all the information you need to make an informed choice. Abortion comes with risks, both physical and psychological, and you have the right to know the possible effects such a decision could have on you both short and long term. You have options, and our volunteer peer counselors can inform you of all your choices before you decide what to do.
At our pregnancy center, we want to help meet your material needs with practical assistance to help empower you as you make preparations for your future. We can provide you with both information and resources to encourage you through your pregnancy and after.
There are many local community resources to which you have access. We can refer you to a variety of groups, agencies and programs to help you and your baby.
You may be feeling like single parenting isn't the best option for you, and it may seem as though having an abortion is your only option. In these instances, you could consider placing your child in an adopted family. Adoption is a viable and loving solution to an unwanted pregnancy, and we can help guide you through the process. We are able to refer you for adoption, and we work with Deaconess Pregnancy and Adoption Services to help place your baby.
Abstinence is intentionally refraining from sexual activity until marriage. We encourage a lifestyle of abstinence for those that are not in a committed, long term relationship as the only way to guarantee protection against unwanted pregnancy, STD's, and psychological repercussions. Abstinence develops character traits such as respect for self and others, responsibility, self-discipline and integrity.
We provide education on sexual risk avoidance including information on a wide number of STD's and STI's and their symptoms. We don't provide testing in our office, but we can recommend a local facility. If you've had sex and are wondering if you should be tested for an STD, go to www.stdwizard.com to determine your risk factor. This confidential, online survey may help provide you with some answers.
Some of the STD's you need to protect against include: • Chlamydia • Gonorrhea • Syphilis • Trichomaniasis • Genital Herpes • Hepatitis B & C • HPV-Human Papillomavirus • HIV
If you are struggling with emotional or spiritual issues after having an abortion, our volunteer peer counselors can help you with the recovery process. We invite you to experience healing in a confidential and non-judgemental atmosphere. Our Post-Abortion Bible studies are led by women who've gone through the pain of abortion themselves and understand the power of God's redeeming grace.
