Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during my appointment?
Each appointment varies, but as a new client you can expect to meet with a Client Mentor who will fill out an intake form from general information you provide. We recommend you make an appointment. Most appointments are one hour in length and will be tailored to meet your specific needs.
Walk-in pregnancy tests are welcome at anytime during our normal business hours. You will receive a self-administered pregnancy test.
What sort of pregnancy tests do you offer?
We use Quick & Clear and Mainline Confirms hCG pregnancy tests. These are highly accurate tests which can detect pregnancy hormones in your urine days before your missed period. Results are available within four minutes. We are not a medical clinic and do not conduct any blood testing.
Do you only speak English?
We have Spanish-speaking Client Mentors at Assist Pregnancy Center and many of our educational resources are offered in Spanish.
Do you offer referrals for abortion or birth control?
We do not perform nor refer for abortions or birth control. We are committed to giving you the best and most accurate information on all your options, including information on pregnancy development, abortion procedures and risks associated with sexual involvement.
What is Earn While You Learn (EWYL)?
For clients who choose to parent, we offer a parent mentoring program. EWYL allows clients to meet with a Client Mentor on a regular basis to work through one of over 50 lessons on pregnancy, fetal development, childcare, parenting, and relationships. These educational sessions are tailored to your particular needs. Each one-hour session earns you a point that can be redeemed for items from our extensive material assistance closet. You are welcome to attend by yourself or with a partner or friend.
Points are also available to other clients through participation in any Assist program.
