Services We Offer
The Pregnancy Centre is here to offer support for anyone experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. Our services are designed to help those in need and are free of charge. Below you will find a description of our most common services and programs but please feel free to Contact Us if you have a question about something that is not listed here – We’d still love to help!
Please note that we are not an adoption agency nor a medical clinic or laboratory.
We offer free pregnancy tests and help you to explore each of your options…parenting, abortion, adoption. We encourage you to take the time to be informed. We know this is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. Good information empowers you to make the best possible decision for you. We are here to listen so you can decide what you want to do. Regardless of your choice, we offer you ongoing support.
Please contact us if you are interested in our pregnancy services or if there is any other way we can help.
We host ongoing, free prenatal, parenting, and home management classes for moms who are in need of support. Please contact Jenn Holbrook, Client Services Director for further information.

Abortion Recovery Program
We are here to help women process emotions and losses sometimes attached to an abortion experience. Processing this “secretive and forbidden grief” is the route towards healing and moving forward in life. It is never too late to begin.
We offer one to one or small group peer support in a safe and confidential environment. You are not alone. Healing is possible. Read about Myrtle’s experience with the Abortion Recovery Program.
Please contact Jen Warkentin, Abortion Recovery Facilitator, if you think this service might be helpful for you. This email address is private and confidential.

At The Pregnancy Centre, we are familiar with many community resources available to women facing an unexpected pregnancy. We can help you identify your specific needs and work with you to access the resources that will allow you to take your next steps during and after your pregnancy.
Services such as medical care, adoption, insurance, employment resources, education, housing, etc. Assistance in exploring spiritual issues is available when requested.
