How much do your services cost?

All of our services are completely free.  Life Options is a non-profit organization, so we don’t make money on any pregnancy decision that you make. That means we can provide unbiased information without a financial conflict of interest. And we’ll do it in a caring, non-judgmental way.

Do you offer services for men?

Yes, we offer STD testing & treatment for men.  You are welcome to attend any pregnancy-related appointments with your wife or girlfriend, and male client advocates are available to talk with you about all of your options to equip you to make the most informed decision.  Fatherhood classes are also available.

My girlfriend is pregnant. What should I do?

Make an appointment for both of you to come in and explore your options. We encourage you to come together to all appointments whenever possible and to be involved in the decision-making process.

Who can come to my appointment with me?

We encourage you to come with the father of the baby, as well as any important support people in your life, such as your parents or a trusted friend. For part of your appointment, we may visit with you alone, and then invite whoever came with you to join in. All services are confidential, so you can decide what portion of the appointment you want them to be a part of.

Will my visit be confidential?

Yes. As a medical clinic, we have a strict confidentiality policy and adhere to all medical confidentiality practices. No matter what service is provided, your results and information are kept private. In fact, we never divulge information, even to parents and partners.

Do I need an appointment?

An appointment is preferred but not required, and walk-ins are always welcome. To ensure that you don’t have to wait, the best plan is to make an appointment or call.

Do you provide contraceptives?

We believe your doctor is the best one to talk with you about contraceptive needs. We do not provide contraceptives or contraceptive services.  Life Options will provide referrals to doctors if you are not currently under a doctors’ care.

Do you refer for abortions?

We do not perform or refer for abortion, but we’ll listen and help you think it through. We believe in your right to be fully informed, so you can choose what’s best for your unique situation.  If you would like to talk more about abortion, make an appointment or come in to one of our centers.

Is Life Options a medical clinic?

While we have a limited scope of practice, we are a medical clinic.  All medical care is provided by state licensed medical professionals under the direction of a medical doctor. We encourage all patients to establish ongoing medical care with a doctor and will provide referrals.  In all cases, if you are experiencing a medical emergency call 911 for assistance.

I already know I’m pregnant. Can I still utilize your services?

Of course. Bring proof of your pregnancy to your appointment or take a free pregnancy test with us to confirm. Our staff will be happy to talk about options and services with you.

How are you funded?

We are 100% funded by the generous donations of the local community of individuals and organizations and receive no state or federal funding. If you would like to help us continue to offer all of our services at no cost to our clients, please consider donating here.
