Our licensed and experienced nurse will confirm pregnancy, determine how far along she is and look to make sure there are no health or safety concerns with the pregnancy (such as an ectopic pregnancy). Everything we provide is all at NO CHARGE with NO PRESSURE and FREE FROM JUDGMENT.

Your friend will be informed on everything she needs to know which will give her the control and confidence to make the best decision for her life.
