We know how hard an unplanned pregnancy can be. At the Open Arms Pregnancy Clinic, we've helped thousands of women and we can help you, too. You are not alone. If you are considering an abortion, there are some important steps you should take beforehand. Here are three things you need to do before an abortion and how to receive them for free.
1. Free Clinical Pregnancy Testing
Your first step to take before an abortion is a pregnancy test. This may sound like a simple step, but it's the preliminary indication that you may be pregnant. However, even if your at-home test came back positive, it's important to have a clinical pregnancy test performed by a medical professional. The Open Arms Pregnancy Clinic offers free and confidential clinical pregnancy testing.
2. Free Ultrasound
The next step in your preparation process is to have an ultrasound exam. Open Arms offers free limited OB ultrasound exams as well. This ultrasound will reveal how far along you are in your pregnancy and whether or not your pregnancy is even viable. This is vital information to have as part of your decision-making process.
3. Free Options Counseling
Once you have a viable pregnancy confirmed and know exactly how far along you are in your pregnancy, the next step is to explore all three options - abortion, adoption, and parenting. Deciding to move forward with any of these options is a big decision, but you don't have to face this decision alone.
We are here to help. We will provide you with resources as well as the information you'll need in order to make an empowered decision for your future. All of our services are completely free and confidential.
