She’s Pregnant, Now What?
Find Our for Sure She’s Pregnant
A positive pregnancy test (including those taken at home) suggests a high probability that she is pregnant. However, the result should be confirmed.
Hope Restored provides free pregnancy testing. Our pregnancy tests are medical quality, highly sensitive, and provide immediate results. If your partner’s test is positive, our staff will determine next steps, such as an ultrasound exam, and the best time to schedule that procedure.
An ultrasound can answer three major questions:
- Is the pregnancy in the uterus?
- How far along is she?
- Is there a fetal heartbeat?
This information is critical regardless of what options you both may be considering. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, we are here to help.
