PREGNANCY

CENTERS

The Pregnancy Center is a not for profit medical facility that has been offering its free services in Seminole County since 1998 and we serve over 200 clients at both of our locations each month. All of our services are free and confidential. We know that pregnancy can bring up a variety of emotions for women of all ages. For some, it is the best news they have ever received. For others, it can be overwhelming and unexpected. 

Whatever situation you find yourself in, please know that you are not alone. Our trained counselors are here to listen with compassion. We offer free pregnancy tests and can help with gestational age determination and many community-based referrals. Call, text or come in today.
