Whether planned or unexpected, you may have come across our site in search of answers to these questions. We offer many services and resources, but a quick summary of our top services are pregnancy tests, limited ultrasounds, options information, abortion recovery classes, and parenting classes. All of our services are at no cost to you.
So what can you expect from your appointment at the CPC?
Do I need an appointment or can I just walk-in?
Appointments are encouraged due to COVID, we’re allowing a limited number of people into the building at a time. So if you did not make an appointment, we may or may not be able to see you when you arrive since appointments are seen first. Your best bet will be to schedule an appointment, which can easily be done by giving us a call or using our online scheduler.
Made the appointment, now what?
After you made your appointment just be sure to have a face mask handy and your ID, and maybe come with a full bladder for your urine pregnancy test. You may have taken at-home pregnancy tests, but our medical director requires a medical-grade pregnancy test done at our center before we can move forward. While in the waiting room you will complete some paperwork to help us get to know you a little better and learn more about what information you would like us to provide. A client advocate will bring you back for your test and while a trained medical staff or volunteer runs your test, you will be able to talk with your advocate about parenting, abortion, and adoption and what resources we can provide.
Your client advocate will bring in your results and go over discharge instructions. If your result comes back positive, you have the opportunity to request a limited ultrasound. A limited ultrasound will tell you if the pregnancy is viable - meaning a fetus can be born and has a reasonable chance of survival. If your result is negative, you will have the option to schedule a retest in a week or two if your cycle still does not come. During this time your client advocate may also give information about any possible referrals you may request such as, housing, food, medical, etc.
If your test result was positive and you requested an ultrasound, our medical staff/volunteer will reach out to you to schedule the ultrasound. On some occasions the ultrasound can be done the same day as your pregnancy test, but plan for a second visit just to be safe. The ultrasound we provide will be a limited ultrasound, which means we cannot tell you the gender, but we can identify if your pregnancy is viable, check for a heartbeat, and take some measurements to give you a better idea of how far along you are in your pregnancy. Understanding how far along you are in your pregnancy is vital if you may be considering abortion.
After your ultrasound appointment you should have more insight about your pregnancy. Our staff and volunteers will be available to answer any questions that arise. If you are planning to parent your child or place your child into a loving home through adoption, now is the time to find a doctor you trust and start your prenatal care. We also have a Parenting Center that offers many resources for mothers, and fathers are welcome as well! If you are considering abortion, you may want to do further research on what the abortion procedures you’re considering entails, we have another post that can provide that info.
We’re here for you and want you to know that we are a resource to you. We offer compassionate and confidential care during what can be a stressful time. You don’t have to figure all this stuff out alone, let trained staff and volunteers answer your questions and encourage you to make the best and most informed decision. We’ll see you soon!
