we can help you figure it out
At Caris, we specialize in meeting the unique needs of women who are facing or think they might be facing unplanned pregnancy.
Any time you have sex there is a possibility of getting pregnant. Even if you were on birth control, or used some form of protection, it is possible that you could be pregnant. If you have missed your period it’s probably time to take a pregnancy test to find out whether or not you are pregnant.

- Do you provide ultrasounds?
Caris offers free ultrasounds for women who have a positive pregnancy test. Our ultrasounds are performed by a Licensed Registered Nurse and can give you more information about your pregnancy.
- What can I expect during a counseling session? How long does it take?
A professional counselor will greet you in the waiting room and invite you to a private room. She will spend time talking with you about what’s going on in your life and how pregnancy may affect it.
- Do you provide a confirmation of pregnancy test results so that I can apply for medical insurance?
Yes, after receiving a pregnancy test from one of our professional counselors, your counselor will provide you with a form that confirms the results. The form you will receive has the result of your pregnancy test, a due date if applicable, your signature, and the counselor’s signature.
- What kind of resources can you connect me to?
We are committed to helping you find the support and resources you need after an unexpected pregnancy. Free resources, community programs, and our very popular Connection Groups are all excellent options.
