Are you unsure if you are really pregnant? An unexpected pregnancy is challenging, and can leave you feeling overwhelmed. We can help you explore your options.
One of our caring counselors can walk you through all the information you need to make a truly informed decision. Remember that abortion is a medical procedure. In Virginia an ultrasound is required before abortion. We offer ultrasound at no cost by a qualified medical professional. Make sure you get all the assistance you need before you make a decision. We can help!
If you have questions about pregnancy, your rights as a pregnant teen, abortion procedures, adoption, parenting, and sexually transmitted infections, please contact us!
We are here to listen to your concerns. All of our services are confidential and free of charge. Our services are available regardless of income, race, religion, county of residence, or residence status.
Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy; however, one of the most significant pregnancy symptoms is a missed menstrual cycle. Some women experience signs or symptoms of pregnancy within a week of conception. For other women, pregnancy symptoms may develop over a few weeks or may not be present at all.
You may have more questions than answers about parenting or maybe the thought of becoming a parent seems impossible to you at this time. We’ve talked to thousands of clients who are concerned about things like this:
My partner doesn’t want the baby but I do.
I can’t tell my family.
If you are experiencing any of the common symptoms of pregnancy the next step is to take a medical quality pregnancy test. Front Royal Pregnancy Center provides free pregnancy testing using sensitive lab quality urine tests. For some women the test will pick up sufficient hormone levels ten days after conception. The test is 99.8% accurate.
Our Pregnancy Center offers free ultrasound exams.
The main purpose of an ultrasound at FRPC is to determine whether a pregnancy can be located in the uterus, (up to 2% are not,) since if not in the uterus it can present very serious medical issues for the woman. We also look to confirm whether there is a heartbeat, since early miscarriage is common. The board certified MD, who reads the scans, will determine gestational age (how far along you are in the pregnancy).
Our Pregnancy Center performs ultrasounds at no cost, and is completely confidential. Our registered nurses are trained by ultrasonographers according to AIUM and AWHONN guidelines.

After ultrasound and help finding a doctor “I wish I could have all my ultrasounds with you guys.”
“The nurses said I was a pro at breastfeeding, and it was from the lessons.”
