Experiencing an unplanned pregnancy can be very stressful. 

We can help you with referrals for health care, prenatal 

vitamins, viability ultrasounds (see below), pregnancy education classes (click) to help you become a parent. With our assistance, those stresses will not be as burdensome while you are trying to make a good decision about carrying to term.


  Missing your period or other pregnancy symptoms doesn’t always 

mean you’re pregnant. Contact our pregnancy center to make an 

appointment for a free pregnancy test. We use Henry Schein First 

Step tests and are more sensitive than many other tests because 

they are able to detect the Hcg pregnancy hormone earlier than many over-the-counter varieties. In this way, they may confirm your 

pregnancy earlier than some home-tests might and with less 

false positives.


Sometime, somewhere, you may have been involved in an abortion - maybe more than one. Perhaps you are the mother or father. Since then, you haven’t been able to forgive yourself. You may be feeling pain, loneliness, or emptiness. Maybe you feel confused or isolated. You think you are the only one who has these feelings. Maybe you just don’t "feel" anymore. Project Rachel can help you deal with the pain of abortion through counseling and support groups. Call: 888-456-HOPE to start on your road to recovery. Your call will be treated with complete confidentiality. The Forestville Pregnancy Center also provides abortion recovery classes on a one-to-one basis. Call: 301-423-0042 for more information. 


Transvaginal and Abdominal Ultrasounds  

  If you are at least 6.5 weeks pregnant, a highly qualified RDMS (Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer) will examine you through ultrasound sonography to determine how far into your pregnancy you are and if your pregnancy is viable. Sometimes a

transvaginal ultrasound (with signed permission) is used in order 

to attain this information.

 Pregnancy Education Classes 

Offered once a month on the second Saturday of the month from 10 am to 12 pm.  Call to register for these classes (301-423-0042).    pregnancy education classes (click)
