It’s a new year and it’s time for some self-care. What better time is there to begin caring for yourself than with the fresh start of a new year?
Pregnancy can be overwhelming and here, at Open Arms Real Choices Clinic, we offer various support services. We would love to assist you in your decision for your own self-care and preparation for your baby.
No Cost Services
- Confidential Care– You don’t have to go through an unplanned pregnancy all alone. Talk to an experienced advocate who will listen without judgment and offer the assistance and guidance you require. We can also connect you with community resources and support.
- Lay Counseling– It’s natural to have worries and apprehensions about being pregnant. Speak to one of our team members and hear about medically-current options information. Get connected into services for yourself, your partner, and your support system. There is no shame in needing counseling.
- Parenting Education Classes– We offer parenting support through one-on-one appointments with advocates, virtually over the internet, and in group class settings.
- Post-Abortion Support Groups– Abortions have life-altering consequences, negatively impacting parents physically, mentally and spiritually. We have groups for both men and women to help you process, heal, and move on with your life.
- Sexual Abuse Support– Sexual abuse is a traumatic experience from which you CAN heal! We offer support either individually or through groups, to give strength, guidance, and encouragement to overcome your past, and move towards a brighter tomorrow.
We also offer services such as:
- Lab-quality pregnancy tests and limited obstetric ultrasounds if you think you might be pregnant.
- Sexual health awareness education to help you navigate the risks of sexually transmitted diseases.
- Adoption support if you plan to carry your baby to term but not parent your child.
If your need is beyond our ability to provide, we will connect you into the community for additional medical, support, and adoption services.
