How do I know if I'm pregnant?
Wondering if you’re just a little late? Do any of these sound familiar?
- I’ve missed a period
- I feel like throwing up sometimes
- I have to use the bathroom more often
- My breasts feel tender
- I’m more tired than usual
- I’m having mood swings
Although not everyone experiences these signs, the symptoms above are commonly associated with early pregnancy. Most pregnancy tests you can buy are very reliable, but they are not 100% accurate. Only a physician or other appropriate healthcare professional can confirm that you are pregnant.
Bridgehaven Pregnancy Support Center provides reliable, free pregnancy tests and can also confirm your pregnancy with a medical ultrasound exam.
Nervous to go alone? We would be happy to go with you!

Facing an unplanned pregnancy? Learn about your options
If a baby is not in your plans right now, abortion might seem like the best way out. Many women and couples find it empowering to understand what is involved in the different abortion procedures as they make a pregnancy decision.
Think you might want to keep your baby?
You may be wondering if keeping your baby is a realistic option. Call us to talk about what parenting could look like for you. We can discuss co-parenting, married parenting, single parenting, or short-term care.
Whatever parenting option you choose, you don’t have to prepare for it alone. We are here for you.
If finances or life circumstances are reasons you are considering abortion, adoption may be a healthy option you want to consider for you and your baby. As your child’s first parent, you can choose a loving family for your child. Licensed adoption agencies can help. Adoption agencies can help you find a loving home in which you can place your baby. Many of these agencies also provide financial assistance for pregnancy and giving birth, and emotional support during the pregnancy and afterwards.
There is plenty of time to consider whether adoption is the right parenting choice for your child. Don’t rush into a decision to make an adoption plan. You have the choice in what kind of family you want to place your child in and how much ongoing contact you want with him or her. Feel free to give us a call for more information. Your questions are welcomed.
Get the facts on abortion
There are several types of abortion that are used at different stages of pregnancy. Medication abortions use drugs, instead of surgical instruments, to end a pregnancy. Surgical abortions are done by opening the cervix and passing instruments into the uterus to suction, grasp, pull, and scrape the pregnancy out. The exact procedure is determined by the baby’s level of growth.
Still have some questions? We would love to meet with you.
Deciding whether or not to have an abortion is complex. Your situation is unique, and we are ready to listen. Call to set up an appointment to ask any questions about abortion.
