What to Look for in a Pregnancy Center

Young Pregnant Woman and Counselor

No two pregnancy centers are exactly the same. While many offer similar services, the way in which they provide those services can vary quite a bit. It’s important to select a place where you can feel comfortable, as pregnancy centers often take on the feel, personality and mission of the people who work there.

Here are some aspects to consider…

A place to discuss all of your options

If your pregnancy was unplanned, you may be unsure how you want to proceed. The right pregnancy center will allow you to honestly explore all of the options available to you, weighing the positive and negative impacts of adoption, abortion and keeping your baby. At Sira, we offer pregnancy options consulting at no charge to help you make informed choices.

Compassionate staff

Pregnancy is an emotional, life-changing time. The questions and fears can often feel overwhelming. At Sira, you will be assisted by trained peer counselors, able to help you as you share your concerns in regard to your pregnancy. We are led by caring individuals and staffed by women who have been in circumstances similar to yours. We understand your needs and are here to help you find hope for the future.

Access to in-house and community resources

Beyond emotional support, you will likely need tangible resources throughout your pregnancy. At Sira, we offer free medical pregnancy tests and free limited obstetrical ultrasounds to confirm the viability of your pregnancy. We also have close ties to several community organizations to ensure you receive the care you and your baby need. Our client advocates can even help you fill out the paperwork, so there’s one less thing you have to worry about.

Choosing the right pregnancy center is an important early step for you and your baby. At Sira in Gainesville, we believe the greatest gift you can give someone is hope… and that with hope, anything is possible. We would be honored to offer that gift to you.
