First Step – Pregnancy Test
The first step is to take a deep breath, and then confirm if you are pregnant or not. It is important to not get ahead of yourself and worry about being pregnant before you are sure.
A missed period is the most common indication of pregnancy, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you are pregnant. So, it is important to get an accurate pregnancy test – but not all pregnancy tests are accurate. Obria provides a no cost (Free) / low-cost lab grade pregnancy test, and if your pregnancy test is positive, you may qualify for an ultrasound. You will have the results during your appointment.
We also provide pregnancy verification which is an official document that is proof of pregnancy for insurance companies and community agencies, in case you need or want this documentation.
Our compassionate and caring medical and support staff are highly trained and dedicated to helping you.
