Medical Services

Pregnancy Tests

Using lab-level pregnancy tests that are 99% accurate, we can help confirm a home pregnancy test. Home pregnancy tests are not as reliable or accurate as a lab-level pregnancy test, so it’s important to have a medical professional provide confirmation.

Ultrasounds

We perform ultrasound scans to confirm your pregnancy is in the uterus and determine how far along you are. All of our ultrasounds are reviewed by our medical doctors, who specialize in ultrasonography and radiology.

Consultation

Once your pregnancy is confirmed, you can begin to look at your options. Speak with a nurse or social worker to work through your questions and concerns and discuss personal circumstances and needs surrounding your pregnancy decision as you find the choice that’s right for you.

Childbirth classes

Childbirth classes, held in a comfortable and respectful group environment, prepare you to make knowledgeable decisions so you can better participate in your baby’s birth. Mother’s Advocate is a great resource to learn more about childbirth and preview some of the topics covered in class.

Ongoing Medical care

We can help you apply for insurance and find the best clinics and hospitals for your further care while considering your neighborhood, available transportation and other needs. Philly is home to renowned health institutions, a wide range of affordable, low-cost Federally Qualified Health Centers and neighborhood city health centers.

Prenatal education & Support

Prenatal resources and information enable you to make healthy choices in pregnancy. We offer a safe space where you can ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have throughout your pregnancy with one of our registered nurses. Text4baby serves as a resource for health and safety information, as well as appointment reminders throughout your pregnancy.

Prenatal vitamins

Offering free prenatal vitamins for women who are uninsured and have not begun their prenatal care. According to the American  Pregnancy Association, “Prenatal vitamins consist of a variety of vitamins and minerals that help your baby get the nutrients that are essential for healthy development.” It is important to begin taking prenatal vitamins right away and to continue taking them throughout your pregnancy. We appreciate Vitamin Angels’ partnership to provide prenatal vitamins as needed.

support for breastfeeding & infant care

Assisting you with any needs you may have f you decide to breastfeed, and can provide or refer for any resources you may need following delivery. Our nurses offer trusted information on infancy and child development founded in the research of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Social Services
