Are You Experiencing

PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS

Think you might be pregnant? We can help.


An unplanned pregnancy can draw up a wide range of emotions, even in the best of circumstances. We have been walking with women as they decide how to move forward…

 We know that the best way to make a decision like this is in an environment free of judgment and full of support.

Women who are pregnant may experience any or all of the following symptoms:

  • LATE OR MISSED PERIOD

  • TENDER OR SWOLLEN BREASTS

  • FREQUENT URINATION

  • NAUSEA OR VOMITING

  • FATIGUE OR INCREASED TIREDNESS

  • LIGHTHEADEDNESS OR FAINTING

  • MILD ABDOMINAL CRAMPING

  • BACKACHES

  • FOOD CRAVINGS OR AVERSIONS

  • DARKENING OF THE NIPPLES

  • MOOD SWINGS

The presence of any or all of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant. In fact, in some cases, women may not experience any early signs of pregnancy.

​These are also common symptoms of other health conditions too. Therefore, confirming a pregnancy through the most accurate means is important.

Do You Need

PREGNANCY VERIFICATION

Have Pregnancy Symptoms? Get a free pregnancy test.

If you visit one of our centers we will provide you with a free pregnancy verification. 

  Our lab-certified urine-based pregnancy tests will be administered by a nurse, when available.  If you request, you will be provided with a written “verification”; or in the absence of medical personnel, a “confirmation” of your positive pregnancy test.  However, only a physician can diagnose a pregnancy.



CAN I HAVE A RETEST IF MY TEST IS NEGATIVE AND MY PERIOD STILL DOESN’T START?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test.  The hCG hormone concentration doubles approximately every 2.2 days during the first 3 months of pregnancy.

IS A BLOOD TEST MORE ACCURATE?

A urine-based pregnancy test detects hCG hormone, whereas a blood test measures the hCG level.  So yes, a blood test is more accurate. 

PCS only provides urine pregnancy tests; your physician or clinic can perform a blood test, to diagnose your pregnancy.




SHOULD I SEE A DOCTOR IF I HAVE A SECOND NEGATIVE TEST AND HAVE NOT STARTED MY PERIOD?

Yes, if you have any medical concerns, you should see your health care provider for assessment.  If you need resources for health care, PRC can provide you with referrals.


In the face of an unplanned pregnancy, many people decide to parent their child after they are born.  Parenting can be overwhelming. We are here to provide as much as we can in the way of resources and support so that you can feel more confident as a parent.

We provide maternity clothes, layettes for newborns, parenting classes for mothers and fathers, referrals to other local agencies and a listening ear. 

We are not just here to support you as you make decisions in the midst of pregnancy, but also after you have given birth and are entering into your new life as parent.

MATERIAL ASSISTANCE

What is meant by material assistance?  It is the assistance in prenatal and infant care items that can be overwhelming in cost to any new parent but a vital necessity when raising children.  i.e. clothes, food, toys, etc.  

When you come in and take our Earn While You Learn classes (EWYL) you earn points, or what we call, Boutique Bucks.  

We have a boutique of wonderful new and lightly used items that are donated to the center.  Most everything will cost you 1 boutique buck. Sometimes we get large items donated which may cost more.

Anywhere from 2 to 4 boutique bucks can be earned per visit.  Bucks may also be earned when you attend other services, such as Celebrate Recovery at First Assembly, Sunday Services at a local church, or a class at the hospital to name a few.  We feel that all types of education are valuable as you learn to be the best parent you can be to your child/children

In our boutique we carry everything from maternity clothes, baby clothes (newborn to 24 months) diapers, pull ups, wipes, baby food, baby formula, and much more.  

When you choose to parent your child, or if you already have children, we want to be there to help you not only with our encouragement and classes, but where the rubber meets the road, with our assistance in material goods that are necessary to raise a child.   

Come in and see for yourself what Pregnancy Care Services is all about.  You are welcome and you will find a loving and non-judgmental atmosphere.

SEXUAL INTEGRITY

Sexual Integrity

So, what do we mean by sexual integrity?  It is more than just “ABSTINENCE” or saying “NO” to premarital sex, it is also understanding that a woman’s sexuality/fertility is beautiful and complex, a gift from God, not a curse, as we so often like to call it.  We, as women, have been given the privilege of protecting life and carrying to term a baby created in the image of God; created in us by God.  

Focus on Fertility 

A four session class offered to anyone interested in knowing how their body works and how to protect their fertility.  This class is for women only.


Session One The Gift of Fertility.

This session talks about the story of the menstrual cycle.  It reviews the reproductive parts and their functions, teaches about the three phases of the menstrual cycle and about our hormones that influence our emotions throughout the month.

  

Session Two Guarding the Gift.  

This session teaches us how to protect our sexual health, the mental and emotional bonding that takes place when we are sexually active, the physical impact on our bodies, i.e. what happens to our fertility when we get STDs etc…  Finally, it talks about birth control and how it works in our bodies and how it affects our fertility.  


Session Three Giving the Gift.  

This session talks about what God’s plan is for marriage and fertility.  It teaches us what God reveals about our fertility through the Bible and through nature and why he instituted marriage as a way to help us protect our fertility. 


Session Four   Embracing the Gift

In this session we learn to chart the signs of our menstrual cycle and what are its benefits.


Love Lessons 

A four session class offered by Pam Stenzel. From Wikipedia: "Pam Stenzel is an American speaker known for lecturing to young people about abstinence-only sex education. She has been described as 'one of the country’s most established abstinence-only lecturers,' and speaks to more than half a million young people every year around the world". In these lessons, Pam explains the dangers of sex outside the boundary set by God (marriage) to us physically, emotionally and spiritually.  These classes can be given to boys and girls together.  


If you are interested in either of these classes on a personal basis, or if you are a leader/teacher and would like this presented to your group or class… CONTACT US
