Does it matter when I most recently had my period before my appointment?
Yes, it does. Before you come in for a no cost pregnancy test, we ask that you be 28-31 days from the first day of your last menstrual period. This will help ensure that your pregnancy test result is accurate. It usually takes the time of a missed period for this hormone to show up. Learn more about pregnancy options including abortion, adoption, & parenting.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
All you need to bring with you to your appointment is a photo ID.
Do I need to make an appointment beforehand?
While walk-ins are welcome, we highly suggest making an appointment beforehand. This will minimize your wait time!
Can I get birth control there?
We do not prescribe birth control.
Is there a cost?
There is no cost for any of our services.
Can I get an abortion there?
We do not perform or refer for abortions.
Can I get an Emergency Contraception there?
We do not provide emergency contraception (Plan B) at our centers.
Why are your services free?
We understand that pregnancy (planned and unplanned) can be a stressful experience. Our desire is to give you a safe place to process your diagnosis of pregnancy without having financial stressors (or the lack of insurance) influence your ability to get information.
What happens after the ultrasound?
We help you get set up with prenatal care if you decide to keep your pregnancy and we walk with you in the journey of motherhood. We provide pregnancy support, classes, and parenting classes in addition to items you need for your children. We are a community that brings “villages” together.
How about services for fathers?
We invite fathers and families to be part of the ultrasound appointment. We have a fatherhood mentorship program for men looking for advice and guidance through this journey. We look forward to serving you!
Is the abortion pill safe?
The abortion pill has a very low mortality rate. However, the process of taking the pill may cause you to have heavy bleeding that can put you at risk of needing emergency services.
How do I determine the day I got pregnant?
A medical professional can help you determine the date of conception after a pregnancy test and an ultrasound to confirm how far along you are in your pregnancy.
