Pause, Don't Panic

We know these days are scary and being pregnant during the Coronavirus pandemic may cause an extra layer of panic if you’re finding out you’re pregnant, and you were not planning for that. Your first thought may be that you need to get an abortion due to the Coronavirus. Before you make an appointment at the abortion clinic- pause, and answer these three things.

    1. Are you actually pregnant?

There are numerous reasons why women miss a period and pregnancy is not always the cause.  You will want to find out for sure so you’re not just guessing. Gateway Women’s Care can offer a free lab-quality pregnancy test to confirm your pregnancy with free and confidential pregnancy options counsel as well.

    2. How far along are you?

Knowing for sure how far along you are is necessary to determine what abortion serices you are eligible for.  A pregnancy calculator can estimate the baby due date but is not always accurate. Ultrasound will give the most accurate gestational age.

    3. Is your pregnancy viable?

Approximately 20% of verified pregnancies will end in miscarriage during the first trimester. Before choosing to terminate your pregnancy, knowing whether your pregnancy is even likely to be carried to term (viable) is vital.  Your body has its own natural mechanism for taking care of a nonviable pregnancy, avoiding an unnecessary and costly procedure.

Gateway Women’s Care is open by appointment only and following a pre-screening phone consultation – we care about your safety and the safety of our team during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We offer free, limited ultrasound to qualified clients to determine viability, gestational age, and if there is a heartbeat.  Answering these questions will affect your abortion decision.

We can help you answer all these questions.  Call Raleigh 919.833.0096 or Durham 919.251.9444 and schedule a free, confidential appointment today.
