Services

Pregnancy Tests

Pregnancy TestTaking a pregnancy test can feel overwhelming, especially when the pregnancy is unexpected. You might have concerns about privacy or what the next steps should be if you are pregnant. We provide a free, self-administered, urine-based pregnancy test in a confidential supportive environment. You don’t have to face this situation alone. Contact us for an appointment.

A Safe Place to Explore Options

If you are facing an unexpected or challenging pregnancy situation, you might be aware of your options (abortion, adoption, and parenting), but you might not be able to picture how each option may look in your own life. Sometimes it helps to talk.

At Envisage we listen to you. We provide a safe, supportive and confidential place to talk about your unique situation and your feelings. We also have information and decision-making materials available to help you.

We recognize there may be people in your life who important to you in your decision-making process. If you would find it helpful, they are welcome to join you in your appointments at Envisage.
