I’m Pregnant and I Don’t Know What To Do Next. What Are My Options?

If you are pregnant, just know that you are not alone. You have time to pause and consider all your options before making a decision regarding your pregnancy. We offer a safe, non-judgmental space to discuss your pregnancy options. If you need someone to listen to you and answer your questions, we are here.

Can I Bring Someone With Me to My Appointment?

Yes, you can bring whoever you would like to your appointment. We want you to feel comfortable and supported during your time at Pathway to Hope. There may be a portion during your appointment, due to privacy reasons, that we talk to you one-on-one, however, your guest can come back in the room as soon as we are finished with that portion of the appointment.

How Do I Know if I’m Pregnant?

The only way to know for sure if you’re pregnant is to take a pregnancy test and have an ultrasound performed. A pregnancy test detects the hormone HCG and an ultrasound will verify that the pregnancy is developing correctly. We can provide you with a free and confidential pregnancy test and ultrasound at our center.

When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after your missed period. This length of time gives your body time to produce a detectable amount of HCG - a pregnancy hormone.
