Pregnancy Resource Center offers women free lab-tested urine-based pregnancy tests that are 99% accurate. Patients can visit the center and request a test or schedule an appointment administered by nurses whenever possible. Upon request, they may provide a written ‘verification’ by a medical professional or a ‘confirmation’ by non-medical staff for insurance purposes.
Patients who have tested positive for pregnancy at the center or elsewhere can access their peer-to-peer pregnancy counseling services. The counseling is administered in a non-judgmental and friendly environment that allows patients to express themselves freely. The center links patients with people who have been in similar situations to help them navigate the emotional, psychological, and physical challenges they are facing or are likely to face as a result of their pregnancy. The counselors advise on the next best step for the patients and are advocates for the patients. All counseling sessions are confidential and do not share patient information with third parties without patients’ consent.
Pregnancy Resource Center has a team of trained and experienced medical professionals and other staff who play diverse roles in helping patients during pregnancy. The center has a patient-centered approach to service delivery that puts the needs and values of the patients at the center of its processes. The staff are friendly and offer customized recommendations and advice that relates to patients’ unique situations.
The center’s representative had this to say about their services,
“For over 30 years, Pregnancy Resource Center has been serving women and families facing an unplanned pregnancy in a safe, confidential, judgment-free environment. We have a network of pregnancy centers, making it convenient for our clients to access our services. Take a look at the information on our website to get an idea of how we can help you, and then get in touch or come in to see us.”
The free pregnancy tests issued at the center are helpful to patients who may not have the resources to purchase a test elsewhere. The accuracy of the test allows patients to use it as proof with insurance providers and other relevant institutions. After testing, patients who have difficulty coming to terms with a positive result receive counseling under the same roof, which is useful and convenient. It is easy for patients to identify with the counselors because they are their peers and have been in the same situation as them before.
In addition to pregnancy tests and counseling, Pregnancy Resource Center offers other services like ultrasounds, STI testing, and community resources. They have educational materials that provide patients with in-depth information about pregnancy and reproductive health. They test for different types of STIs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea.
