“Options for Women has been so helpful to me and my boyfriend. We went to the same coach throughout my pregnancy. She explains everything so we understand.”
“The ladies here exhibit the beauty of love, grace and mercy.”
“I did not have a lot of family support during my pregnancy, but my coach was super supportive
and really encouraged me…I am very thankful for being part of the Options for Women program and
grateful for my relationship with my coach.”
“…most importantly my coach was there to share experiences, answer my questions, and
encourage me. Options for Women was a supportive atmosphere, and I am thankful I was able to
attend, to gain knowledge, friendships and self-esteem!"

A: Absolutely. You can bring your boyfriend, family member, or friend. We will talk with you privately first. Then, provided you have given us consent to have them in the room, your guest will be able to join you.
A: You’ll be welcomed by our receptionist who will introduce you to your coach. She will listen to you and provide you with information followed by a pregnancy test. Should your test be positive, an appointment will be scheduled with one of our nurses to conduct a limited ultrasound to confirm if you have a viable pregnancy and date fetal age.
A: Our tests can be performed 7 to 10 days after conception. A client with a negative result may be invited to return within 2 weeks for a repeat test if she has not had her period.
If you have taken a home pregnancy test, it is best to confirm results with a laboratory-quality test at our center or mobile clinic.
A: We adhere to a strict privacy and confidentiality policy. Clients will be protected from disclosure of information that violates the right to privacy except when required by law, required for public health reasons, required to avert a threat of harm to the client or a third person, or when other circumstances may reasonably warrant such use or disclosure without prior authorization (e.g., abuse reporting, suicide/homicide prevention, etc.).
A: Our professional, medical-grade lab quality pregnancy test can determine pregnancy on the first day after your first missed period. We recommend you make an appointment if you have missed a period, have any pregnancy related questions, or think you might be pregnant.
A: On-site ultrasounds can be scheduled after an initial intake with one of our coaches. Our limited ultrasound exams are performed by a licensed nurse or RDMS (registered sonographer) and reviewed by a licensed physician. An ultrasound confirms a viable pregnancy. To qualify for a limited ultrasound, you’ll need to be a minimum of 8 weeks since your last menstrual period.
A: You can still meet with a member of our staff to discuss your concerns and review available options. An ultrasound is recommended to know if your pregnancy is viable and in your uterus, since 20% – 30% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. Additionally, the ultrasound will give you an approximate idea how far along you are to determine what type of abortion you would choose. We can provide a limited ultrasound at no cost to you.
