Life Care Pregnancy Center uses a one-step test for the qualitative detection of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in urine. They are laboratory-quality, with a 99.9% accuracy rate. Human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, is a protein hormone produced by the placenta. Tests are administered by our Nurse Manager.
When a client is vulnerable to abortion, it is critical that she receive a limited ultrasound. Our Medical Director, Dr. Deucher, wrote standing orders so the medical team may perform limited ultrasounds when needed. This not only confirms the pregnancy but it also gives our client the opportunity to see her baby.
Breastfeeding Support & Education
Life Care provides a supportive environment for clients to learn about and practice breastfeeding. Pre-natal and post-partum classes are offered in both one-on-one and group settings, as well as support and guidance throughout the breastfeeding experience by a certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). Advocacy and referrals are also provided for medical breastfeeding needs.
CONFIDENTIAL PEER ADVOCACY
Our volunteer Client Advocates offer hope and compassion for women with unplanned pregnancies by educating, equipping and encouraging them. With a true calling from the Lord, all our advocates go through intensive training and are committed to a three-hour work shift. They are on the front line of this ministry and critical to our mission of saving the lives of the unborn and their mothers.
EARN WHILE YOU LEARN
Earn While You Learn ® is just one of the many ways Life Care Pregnancy Center encourages parents to increase their parenting skills. Once a week clients come in to learn parenting skills. After taking a class, clients may purchase items for their baby or maternity clothing. This program allows our advocates to build relationships with clients. Mothers may come in until the baby reaches his/her second birthday.
EVANGELISM & DISCIPLESHIP
Our mission at the Life Care Pregnancy Center is to save the lives of the unborn and their mothers. When led by the Holy Spirit, our Client Advocates are trained to help meet the spiritual needs of the clients. Many are in need of the Savior and many, after meeting Him earlier in their lives, have simply lost their way. Advocates build a relationship with the clients and are able to disciple them in their walk with Christ.
ALTERNATIVES TO ABORTION
ADOPTION – Sometimes a birth parent isn’t ready to raise a child and simply cannot see another way out other than abortion. Life Care Pregnancy Center is committed to educating women on the option of adoption. Most are not interested in considering adoption but often times between the 5th and 8th month of pregnancy they come to the realization that they are not able to parent. It is then they weigh the option of adoption. During the initial assessment with the clients, our Client Advocates give them the facts about adoption. Each client is referred three adoption agencies and/or maternity homes…we are not affiliated with any adoption agency nor do we assist in adoptions.
PARENTING – Most women will choose parenting when presented with the facts about the physical, emotional, relational and spiritual effects of abortion. When counseling and ultrasounds are coupled together, the choice to parent becomes even greater. We provide hope and a plan of action.
