I'm pregnant and i'm scared

An unplanned pregnancy feels scary and lonely. But you aren’t alone.

Even before you receive your free pregnancy test, you’re probably scared.

After all, you’ve seen those two lines on the pregnancy test you took at home. You knew pregnancy was a possibility, but seeing the test makes it all so real.

It’s right there in the 2nd line of your pregnancy test – positive.

And then comes the fear.

An unplanned pregnancy feels scary and lonely. But you aren’t alone.

Here at Alcove Health, we see you and we want to help. So take a deep breath and let’s settle some of this fear.

You have options – whether you’re considering an abortion or carrying the pregnancy to term. But before you chase down all your options (even in your mind), what you need first is more information.

But I have a positive pregnancy test, what else could I possibly need to know? you may be asking yourself.

Actually, there’s a lot you don’t know. And unknowns often cause fear.

First, you need a lab-grade pregnancy test to verify that your test result is accurate – we do that at no-cost right here at Alcove Health.

Then, if your test is positive, you need an ultrasound, so you can know if the pregnancy is ectopic (a health emergency) and so you can know if the pregnancy is in the process of miscarrying – we do that at no-cost right here at Alcove Health.

Finally, you need STI/STD testing, especially if you are considering an abortion – yep, we also do that at no-cost right here at Alcove Health.

Here at Alcove Health Women’s clinic, we provide even more – like an options consultation and a private conversation with one of our Registered Nurses. But the cost isn’t more; it’s always the same – free.

Look, we understand fear. That’s why we’re a safe space for you to process your feelings, understand your options, and receive important medical services so you can make the best decision for your reproductive health.

A lot of times fear is based on the unknowns. Worrying and stressing won’t help. You know what will help? Getting the information you need to make a safe choice. You can get all the information you need right here at Alcove Health.

Call Alcove Health in Newport News and make us your first contact. You’ll learn all your options. You’ll pay nothing. And you’ll gain everything you need to make a decision that’s right for you.
