Options Counseling

If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and now you are considering your pregnancy options, we’re here to help. We’re here to provide options counseling and to empower you to make the best choice for your situation. When you schedule pregnancy options counseling, know that you are in a private, judgement free environment.






We’re here to help you take the time to address your parenting and help you find the resources you need. Many people who want to parent may have questions about single parenting, co-parenting, marriage, continuing their education, financial stability and other topics. We offer free pregnancy and parenting classes as part of our options counseling program.



We’re here to provide pregnancy options counseling, including learning about the choices adoption has to offer. We provide free information about the adoption process and referrals to adoption agencies. In most cases, financial assistance is available for the birth mother, along with many other benefits.



Abortion is a medical procedure. If you’re considering abortion, it is important to educate yourself on the procedures and risks. Learn about abortion procedures, costs and restrictions in Maryland. We will listen and help you think through your situation and your options. All services are free and confidential.

Medical Consultation

At your appointment, you will be provided a lab-quality pregnancy test first. If your pregnancy test comes back positive, you may be eligible for an ultrasound. A free ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along you are in pregnancy. If you are considering abortion, an ultrasound will provide important information that will tell you more about your pregnancy and your abortion options.  Learn about this and other topics with our options counseling program.

→ Learn How Far Along You Are

Abortion costs vary depending on how far along you are and the abortion procedure that you receive. An ultrasound can help to determine fetal development. Speak with a nurse today about our ultrasound services.

→ Is Your Pregnancy in the right place?

It’s important to determine if the pregnancy is in the right place and if you are at risk for a natural miscarriage or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy to prevent any complications.

→ If You Have An STD/STI

Not all abortion providers provide testing for STIs or STDs. Ruling out or treating an STI or STD is important because infections or serious complications can occur if one isn’t treated before you undergo an abortion procedure.
