In the midst of an unplanned pregnancy, you’re likely feeling confused, worried, and scared. You might even feel like you’re alone and that nobody could understand what you’re going through. For so many women, these emotions cloud the truth — the truth that you’re loved and supported, no matter what you’re experiencing!
Thankfully, you have choices when it comes to your pregnancy. Here at First Care Clinic, we’re passionate about empowering women to make their own decisions by providing free healthcare resources and facts and information on each of their options.
If you’re considering abortion, here are three reasons you should visit a pregnancy clinic like ours prior to your abortion appointment.
1. Free Pregnancy Tests
Before making any decisions, you should confirm that you’re actually pregnant. Lab-quality pregnancy tests provide the most accurate results, so even if you’ve taken an at-home test, it’s important to confirm your pregnancy through a visit with your local pregnancy clinic.
Like ours, most pregnancy clinics provide free and confidential pregnancy tests, and their professional healthcare staff will take time to discuss the results and go over your options with you.
2. Free Ultrasound Scans
Making an informed decision means you’ll first need to gather all of the information possible on your pregnancy. Once you confirm you’re pregnant, you’ll want to schedule an ultrasound so you can determine where your pregnancy is located, how far along you are, and whether it is viable.
The stage of your pregnancy will determine the type of abortion you’ll have access to, which will then determine the cost of the procedure. The scan will also tell you if your pregnancy is viable (meaning a heartbeat was detected) and whether it is located in the uterus. If the pregnancy is not found in the uterus, it is called an ectopic pregnancy, which is not only nonviable but can also be dangerous and life-threatening.
Pregnancy clinics provide ultrasounds at no cost to you, regardless of your insurance coverage. After your ultrasound, the ultrasound technician will explain the scan to you and go over any questions you might have about your pregnancy.
3. Free Information and Consultation
Not only will local pregnancy clinics provide you with free healthcare, but you’ll also receive a free consultation with a trained counselor. They’ll take time to answer any questions you have, listen to your fears and worries, and provide you with a list of resources related to your pregnancy options.
Unlike other reproductive healthcare providers, pregnancy clinics only provide free services and don’t benefit financially from your choice. Instead of a customer with a dollar sign value, you will be treated with the care and respect you deserve as you make the best decision for you and your future!
