Education on All Your Options
The nature of an unexpected pregnancy often leaves women feeling understandably unprepared; they weren’t planning to be pregnant so they often have many questions they’ve never had to ask or answer before. As overwhelmed as you may feel, you should remember you are not alone in your pregnancy. We offer the education and information you need to make a fully-informed decision about the outcome of your pregnancy.
initial prenatal assessment
It’s important to understand the health of your pregnancy before determining next steps. An Alabama Pregnancy Test Center physician or nurse practitioner provides an initial prenatal assessment, prenatal lab work, and a limited pregnancy ultrasound to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy. Our center staff can also assist you with necessary referrals based on your current stage of pregnancy.
After your testing is completed our staff will help you understand how far along are you. They will also assess if you are at risk for natural miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. Finally, they’ll be able to tell you more about what abortion procedures are available to you – the abortion pill or surgical abortion – as well as other options for your pregnancy.
