Worried about pregnancy?
Are you are facing an unplanned pregnancy? Not sure? Do you have pregnancy symptoms?
The next step is a trip to the HOPE Center for a free medical quality pregnancy test.
If you are thinking about having an abortion, you need to be sure you know your pregnancy facts. Is your pregnancy viable (capable of living) and uterine (growing in the uterus and not in the fallopian tubes)? An ectopic pregnancy (one that is growing in the tubes) is dangerous to your health and
safety. Only a medical professional can confirm if you have a viable uterine pregnancy. Only a medical
professional can tell you how far along you are in your pregnancy. The abortion procedure that
you may consider is determined by the gestational age of your pregnancy. Before you make a
decision about abortion or carrying your pregnancy you need to be sure you know the answer to the
question "How far along am I?" We offer a free limited obstetrical ultrasound which can help you better
determine your pregnancy options.
Get the pregnancy facts for yourself. Call us today.
Some choices are harder than others.
If your test is positive, we offer options counseling, at no charge. You are valuable, and we are here to help you and your baby through an unplanned pregnancy.
But if you are not sure what you want to do, we will discuss all your pregnancy choices: parenting, adoption, and abortion, including an important health and safety checklist for women seeking abortion.
Our no cost, confidential services include:
- Pregnancy tests
- Limited ultrasound
- Emotional and spiritual support for mothers and families dealing with unexpected pregnancy
- Abortion education and alternatives
- Support and counseling for women who have had abortions
- Community resources
The HOPE Center welcomes teens, Strawberry Mansion HS students and students from any Philadelphia City high school, middle school students, young couples, Temple University students, and anyone facing a crisis pregnancy.
Making choices about sex?
Sex is everywhere, but if you are not ready for a baby or a sexually transmitted disease, then you must think carefully about your choice to be sexually active.
If you feel like you are in over your head, we can help by providing some relationship counseling for young people.
Make sure you know all about the symptoms of sexually transmitted disease and the best way to prevent STDs. Read the most frequently asked questions about condoms.
