Q. Will you tell anyone about my visit to your center?

In addition, we won't contact you without your permission. The only exceptions are when required by law. We are here to help you.
We will not share information about your services at our Center unless we have your written permission to do so.
Q. What are the symptoms of pregnancy?
A. Some symptoms are:
• A missed or abnormal period
• Feeling nauseous in the morning or any time of day
• Increased appetite or food cravings
• Breast tenderness
• Increased tiredness
• Unusually frequent urination
Q. Why do I need to have missed a period?
A. Pregnancy tests check for a hormone called hCG that is produced by the embryo during pregnancy. This is why you should wait until you have missed your period to take the test. We offer free medical grade pregnancy tests. For more information about pregnancy options including abortion, adoption and parenting, please call 419-522-8862.
Q. Will you provide a Proof of Pregnancy?
A. For clients who have received a positive free pregnancy test at our office, Richland Pregnancy Services can provide a Verification of a Positive Pregnancy Test (including estimated due date) to apply for a medical card through Job and Family Services, along with a WIC referral. We also provide referral information for other community agencies as well as for local physicians.
Q. What if I’m pregnant? Does the center have resources to help me make decisions about my pregnancy options?
A. We provide support no matter what your situation is. We will connect you with a client advocate who will fit our services with your needs, providing information, education, referrals, and supplies. See “Services Provided” for more information.
Q. Do you do ultrasounds?
A. Yes. Clients who have received a positive free pregnancy test result at the Richland Pregnancy Services’ office may be eligible for a limited ultrasound performed by trained medical personnel.
Q. I have already had an abortion. Does the center offer any services for me?
A. You are not alone. Our center offers confidential, compassionate support designed to help women and men begin a healing process from a past abortion in their lives. These one-on-one sessions are offered free of charge. Please call us to schedule your appointment. All calls are confidential.
