We know how overwhelming it can be to find out you’re unexpectedly pregnant. Be sure of your pregnancy with no-cost, medical-grade pregnancy testing at our center and get the clarity you need to move forward.
Getting an ultrasound during pregnancy helps keep you safe. An ultrasound can reveal the following information about your pregnancy:
- Location. Typically, a pregnancy attaches and grows inside the uterus. However, sometimes this occurs outside the uterus. This is known as an ectopic pregnancy, and it’s a life-threatening condition that needs medical treatment. An ultrasound can determine if this is occurring, which is fundamental for keeping you safe.
- Gestational Age. A nurse will take measurements during the ultrasound that can help reveal the age of your pregnancy. This is important to know as you consider your pregnancy options.
- Viability. Roughly 26% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. An ultrasound will look for signs of viability, such as a heartbeat. This is important information to have prior to determining your next steps.
Our initial pregnancy confirmation ultrasounds are provided at no cost and are completely confidential. All exams are performed by nurses trained in limited-purpose ultrasound and are read by a licensed physician.

There are two types of abortion procedures with physical risks. According to the Mayo Clinic, the possible risks of medical abortion include:
- Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
- An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
- Digestive system discomfort
There are serious risks of surgical abortion to consider before moving forward. Each type of surgical abortion uses similar processes of termination and comes with similar risks, including:
- Perforation of the uterus (when a surgical instrument pokes a hole in the uterus)
- Damage to the cervix
- Scar tissue on the uterine wall
- Excessive bleeding
Of course! If you feel safe and comfortable with your partner coming along to your appointment, they are welcome!
