Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring Someone With Me?
You can bring whoever you would like to your appointment. We want you to feel comfortable and supported during your time at New Hope Center. There may be a portion during your appointment, due to privacy reasons, that we talk to you one-on-one. However, your guest can come back in the room as soon as we are finished with that portion of the appointment.
Is My Visit Confidential?
Yes. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, and we will do our very best to protect that privacy. Your confidentiality is kept in every situation except those which could jeopardize your safety.
How much will my Appointment cost?
At New Hope Center, all of our pregnancy support and services are at no cost to you. We are here to help support you in a difficult time, so you can have peace and ease as you are considering your options.
What Do I Need to Bring to My Appointment? Simply bring an ID with you (driver’s license, school ID, etc.). If you do not have an ID, you can receive all services except the Proof of Pregnancy Form.
How do I know if I’m Pregnant?
The most common symptom of a pregnancy is a missed period, but there are others as well. Other symptoms include fatigue, spotting, cramping, nausea, frequent urination, and tender breasts. We will provide you with a no-cost, lab-quality pregnancy test so you can know for sure.
How soon can I take a Pregnancy test?
It is best to wait until after you have missed a period before taking a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test detects the presence of hCG, the hormone released during pregnancy. Waiting a week after your missed period allows your body to produce enough hCG to be detected by the test. During your appointment, you will be asked to give a urine sample, and our staff will be on hand to discuss your results and answer any questions you have.
How soon can I have an Ultrasound?
An ultrasound can be performed when you are at least 6 weeks pregnant. It will verify your due date, look for a fetal heartbeat, and measure the length of the baby from crown to rump. At this ultrasound, you may learn whether you’re having more than one baby, and you may see or hear your baby’s heartbeat.
