You think you are pregnant, but maybe you are unsure.
You may already understand your options but you want to be informed before making decisions that affect your health and the baby growing inside you. These are big decisions and we are here to listen and help you research, talk it out and make the choices that are weighing on you!
Here’s what you can expect on your FIRST visit to Birthright:
Free Pregnancy Testing
At your first visit to Birthright, you will be greeted by a friendly volunteer. If you think you are pregnant, you are welcome to a free pregnancy test. It’s so easy. We offer a urine-based, medical-quality pregnancy test to confirm that you are pregnant (or you may choose to provide proof with an ultrasound). We’ll get the result in just a few minutes. If you find out you are pregnant, we are here to help you get insurance and referrals to a doctor.
We offer friendly counsel from our experienced volunteers. We cannot give professional counseling, but we have kind women here who can help you sort through the basic questions.
- How do you feel about your pregnancy?
- What options do I have?
- Where will you and baby live?
- What support will you need? from your family? From us?
- What resources can you obtain to help you through?
We want to help alleviate concerns, particularly if your pregnancy is coming at a difficult time, is unplanned, or inconvenient. You may be fearful or anxious. We are here to help you sort through those feelings and find solutions to some of the challenges.
Maybe you are sure you are pregnant, you are delivering soon, but resources are stretched thin. Sometimes things get difficult, please know we are here for you even if you already have other children or your financial circumstances have changed for the worse.
