We use a lab-quality pregnancy test that is 99% accurate within 10 days of conception. If you have a positive pregnancy test result, you will be provided with additional resources and information based on your needs and plans. We will also supply you with a Pregnancy Verification form to submit for insurance or benefits.
Limited OB Ultrasounds
Our medical staff provides qualified clients with an ultrasound to confirm a viable pregnancy. This means that you will find out how far along you are, your expected due date, and the presence of a fetal heartbeat in the uterus. This information is important for you to make a confident decision about your pregnancy.
We offer information on all your pregnancy options, including abortion, adoption, and parenting. You can find support and clarity in a safe, confidential, judgment-free environment to move forward in your pregnancy decision. Need more info?
Pre-termination counseling is provided at Spero Center. When acceptable to the woman, pre-termination counseling can help with the process of decision making and assist in understanding her emotional health and physical risks before a procedure.
The advocates who counsel must make sure that they are able to discuss the questions, provide information regarding abortion and other alternatives, and help the women cope with their own feelings and those of others who know of and/or are involved in the pregnancy situation. The pre-termination counseling is non-judgmental. This counseling can also provide such basic information regarding the abortion process as the legality in the woman's state, its safety, privacy, description of the clinic and abortion procedures. Spero does not perform or refer for abortion. Need more info?
