The Saint Gianna Center provides free, confidential, professional grade pregnancy testing. The test that is used is the ProPhase Plus single step pregnancy test, which is 99.9% accurate.
Alternatives to Abortion
Saint Gianna Center advisors will discuss with you the many alternative options that exist for you beyond abortion. These include:
• Marriage: When are the circumstances right for marriage?
• Single parenting: What does that mean for you?
• Adoption: What are the new possibilities?
How do these options fit into your future and the future of your pre-born child?
Referrals for Outside Services
Saint Gianna Center provides referrals for financial, legal, and medical aid, including off site referrals for ultrasound and STD testing. We have a wide network of local agencies with whom we work to obtain optimum care for our clients.
Saint Gianna Center may be able to provide housing options for clients in need. We work with host families who open their homes to women in need of housing during the pregnancy and beyond. An interview and established code of conduct, as well as reasonable house rules, are required when this option is considered.
Labor and Delivery Support
A consultant is available to attend labor and delivery with clients when no other support is available.
Childbirth and Parenting Classes
“Earn While You Learn” is our popular program that consists of childbirth and parenting classes that are made available to first time parents. Clients learn about delivery techniques and parenting skills that are important once birth has arrived. Upon completion of the course, clients are eligible to receive items that will be needed for the baby’s care.
A Saint Gianna Center Adoption Specialist is available to meet with clients to discuss this loving option.
Post-Abortion Support and Recovery
Saint Gianna Center recognizes that abortion is a traumatic event and provides an individualized program to assist clients in their recovery.
