Our clinics offer counseling and accurate medical information about all pregnancy options; however we do not perform or refer for abortion procedures.
The PRC’s clinics provide free lab-certified, nurse-administered pregnancy tests. Our pregnancy tests are urine specimen tests that can detect pregnancy as soon as 10 days after conception.
Pregnancy Options Counseling
This counseling is designed to walk clients through their options with one of our trained client advocates. This time allows the clients to be open about their situation and their concerns.
Our medical staff is available to address women’s medical questions regarding pregnancy and sexual health. We provide our clients with medically accurate information about all pregnancy options; however, we do not perform or refer for abortions.
Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound
After a positive pregnancy test at one of our clinics, depending on assessment of one of our nurses, clients may be eligible for an ultrasound, which can determine how far along they are in their pregnancy. This ultrasound can also confirm that there is a living uterine pregnancy.

The PRC’s clinics offer free and confidential STI testing for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.
Medical, Church & Adoption Referrals
The PRC helps connect our clients with resources throughout the New River Valley and beyond for help and support.
Pregnancy & Parenting Education Program
The PRC offers a pregnancy and parenting education program for women and men, along with material assistance, throughout their pregnancy and beyond. This program, called Earn While You Learn, covers many topics, including:
- Prenatal Development
- Nutrition and Exercise during Pregnancy
- Bonding with your Baby
- Boundaries with Children
- Life Skills (Building a Family Budget, Grocery Shopping on a Budget, Tips for Looking for Affordable Housing)
And many, many more.
In addition, for every class a client completes, she/he earns credits to ‘purchase’ items from our Family Resource Store, such as maternity and baby clothes, strollers, diapers, wipes and more.
Classes may be taken weekly, are taught one-on-one, and can be taken for up to two years. An additional family member may attend classes with the client and earn the same credits.

The PRC offers post abortion care to any women who has struggled with unresolved feelings following a previous abortion. Call one of our offices to find out more about our confidential post-abortion recovery services.
